Mission Moments from Federation Schools

Students in our Catholic Schools have many opportunities to learn more about themselves, excel in their studies, and be followers of Jesus Christ, spreading His Gospel message. A few recent examples include:

    • Our Lady of Guadalupe students have been learning about women of the church this school year, thanks to a Sister Mary Ann Governal/Ellen Ryan Memorial Development Grant from the archdiocesan Catholic Education Center. OLG students visited the Old St. Ferdinand Shrine in April, and their "Women of the Church" school year theme was recently featured in an article in the St. Louis Review.

    • Five seventh grade students from St. Angela Merici School participated in the St. Louis Science Fair at Queeny Park. Two students received red ribbons and three students earned blue ribbons. One of our students received a special award from the American Chemical Society, the St. Louis Chapter and a special recognition from the Monsanto Corporation.

    • Girl Scouts at St. Rose Philippine Duchesne School sponsored an Anti-Bullying Poster Contest and invited St. Rose Students to submit a poster with an anti-bullying message. Many participated and decorated the school cafeteria with lots of great posters with this important message.

    • Each October the students at Sacred Heart begin the Spiritual Adoption Program sponsored by the parish Pro-Life Committee. This program allows the students and teachers to save the unborn babies and help their mothers make the right choice through intercessory prayer. The students say a brief prayer daily for the rest of the school year to support and strengthen these mothers and their unborn babies. Then in May we have a Birthright Baby shower along with our May Crowning and Living Rosary. Last week during the May Crowning the students brought in numerous bags of baby items enough to fill up a small pick up truck!! All of these items will be taken to Our Lady's Inn to be distributed to the mothers for their babies.
