Sacrament Day for First Communion and Confirmation Candidates

On Saturday morning, January 23, all children preparing to receive First Communion or Confirmation came together for Sacrament Day. Each First Communion candidate was paired with a Confirmation candidate. Together, they were given a piece of paper that looked rather confusing. Relying on faith, they colored and folded as directed. The finished product showed the true meaning: Jesus is really present in the Eucharist. Please stop by and check these out on the first floor bulletin boards outside the second grade classrooms. Some of the other activities of the day included learning about the 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit, discovering the hidden treasures in our church, a living rosary and making flames and chalices requesting prayers from parishioners as they prepare for their sacraments.

St. Judes Math-A-Thon

St. Louis is participating in a school wide service project and will kick it off during Catholic Schools Week. Our students are going to show off their math skills by participating in The St. Jude Math-A-Thon. This is an optional project but we encourage all students to participate because they will be helping children less fortunate than they are. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital will take care of children at no cost to the family.

Your child will bring home a permission slip this week. Please sign and return if your child is able to participate. The booklets with math problems will be given to the students next week. We ask that all pledges be returned to school by February 23rd. Thank you in advance for helping families less fortunate than we are.

The St. Louis Cardinals 8th grade boys basketball team defeated the St Nicholas Trojans Sunday in the Batesville Deanery by a final score of 37 to 28.

The Cardinals needed a team effort to pull away from a determined Trojan squad. St Louis led at the half by five and only outscored St. Nicholas in the second half by 4.

Aaron Weber provided sound leadership on both ends of the floor and contributed 2 points. Zach Harmeyer and Evan Vogelsang were active defensively and each added 3 points. Johnathan Deal came up with some big steals and finished with 3 points as well. Jacob Deutsch was active on the boards and had 9 points. But it was Charlie Dice who kept the Trojans off balance with his ability to get inside. Dice finished with a game high of 17 points. Adam Cox, Joey Gutzwiller, Abe Peetz, Zeb Streator and Eli Tuveson saw significant playing time and provided sound support in the win.

St. Louis will represent the Batesville Deanery in the opening round of the 2016 CYO Archdiocese Of Indianapolis Basketball Tournament Sunday February 14. They will face the winner of the Indianapolis Deanery "National" bracket.

The tip is scheduled for 1:00 at Scecina Memorial HS, in Indianapolis.

Faith Tekulve, Lilly Wonnell and Ava Allen each chipped in 2 points. Defensively, the Cardinals played tough and aggressive and went home with the win. Way to go Lady Cardinals!

In a hard-fought contest, the 6th grade lady Cardinals were defeated by St. Lawrence 14-11. The Cardinals played great defense and had a lot of close shots that just didn't fall. Shelby Weiler led the team with 6 points, Ava Allen had 4 and Lily Wonnell chipped in 1.

School Monday February 1st. The Cardinals were able to pull out a victory over the Lady Raiders 22 - 18 by playing aggressive defense and good team ball.
