St. Peter - Kirkwood 


Msgr. Jack Costello said on Holy Thursday night that it finally hit him how wrong it was to have an empty church. The evening that Christ gave us the Eucharist and he couldn’t give it to the parishioners. Following Easter Sunday Mass, Msgr Costello told us he was so happy that a few parishioners organized the surprise drive by car parade.

"I absolutely loved seeing so many people (safely socially distanced in their cars, of course!). The visit from the Kirkwood police was a little nerve wracking, but I was glad we could honestly say “we did not plan this…it was a surprise from the parishioners!”

St. Joseph - Imperial 


The staff of St. Joseph Parish in Imperial, MO has turned into high gear during the COVID-19 quarantine. In addition to daily inspirational videos posted on the parish Facebook page from Fr. Vortriede and Fr. Shaughnessy, they made sure to remember the kids of their parish on Easter by providing a drive- thru Easter basket pickup.


The parish staff, with the assistance of the Easter bunny and using best practices of sanitation, put together Easter baskets for the young people of the parish and offered an Easter blessing as parishioners drove through during an Easter parade through to pick them up.

St. Clare of Assisi 

Fr. Chris Martin and Fr. Andrew Auer have been doing their best to maintain a personal connection to parishioners, emphasizing the international aspect of our Catholic faith. As the Catechism states: "For this is why the Word became man, and the Son of God became the Son of man: so that man, by entering into communion with the Word and thus receiving divine sonship, might become a son of God (CCC 460).

Fr. Martin and Fr. Auer have taken on Facebook live Fireside chats every Wednesday night so that they might show their parishioners their own faith life and the more human side of their priestly ministry.
