As you have heard from our previous announcements, Beyond Sunday is a landmark campaign designed to ensure a lasting legacy for the future of our local parish communities and Catholic education in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. It is the fulfillment of Archbishop Robert Carlson’s vision to strengthen
Catholic education for generations to come. He has asked every parish in the Archdiocese of St. Louis to participate in an Archdiocesan-wide campaign that is being conducted by the Roman Catholic Foundation of Eastern Missouri.
For more information please visit the Beyond Sunday website at: www.beyondsundaystl.org .
