I will be addressing the North St. Louis deanery this evening. If we have just a few more parishes, we will be prepared for our first meeting on January 7th. Also, an anonymous donor has agreed to pay for some advertising in the newspaper. Members of our parish are also continuing to contact local parishes to encourage them to participate.
I have also spoken with two more parishes (St. Augustine and St. Vincent de Paul) and waiting to hear back from them.
