Support the Catholic Communication Campaign

The Catholic Communication Campaign will take place in parishes the weekend of May 20-21 and helps the Church spread the Gospel message through the media locally and nationally. Half of all donations to the CCC stay in the Archdiocese of St. Louis to support local communications needs, such as radio and television programming and diocesan publications. Local efforts include Mass on the radio in areas such as Ste. Genevieve, a televised Mass for the homebound, technology improvement to reach a more mobile Catholic population and the annual Communications Colloquium, which provides communications and marketing resources and instruction to schools, parishes, and agencies, assisting them as they spread the Gospel message.

The campaign also supports projects elsewhere in the United States and in developing countries where the local Church lacks resources to spread the Gospel message. To learn more about the CCC or make a donation online, visit www.archstl.org/ccc.

Six students from St. Louis-area Catholic high schools were among 48 high school students statewide to be awarded National Merit $2,500 scholarships.

Court coach

Dan Rolfes of Incarnate Word Academy is one of four court coaches selected for the 2017 USA Basketball Women's U16 National Team Trials. The trials are expected to feature 35 invited athletes and 115 applicant athletes vying for one of 12 roster spots on the 2017 USA U16 National Team. The court coaches will assist 2017 USA U16 head coach Carla Berube of Tufts University. Rolfes joins USA Basketball for the first time after a successful 2016-17 season in which Incarnate Word Academy finished with a 28-4 record and the Missouri Class 4 state championship. The title was Rolfes' seventh with the Red Knights. After a 31-1 season in 2013-14, he was named the 2014 MaxPreps Girls Basketball National Coach of the Year. After wrapping up his 17th season at Incarnate Word, Rolfes was inducted into the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame on April 22, and he was named the 2017 Missouri Basketball Coaches Association Coach of the Year, the seventh such award of his career.

He made perpetual vows in 1975 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1976. Among his assignments, Father Studer has served as director of the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Ill.
