Michael James Mette Concert

Michael James Mette Band

Michael and Michelle Mette and their seven children are Catholic musicians who travel and share programs. They have sung in 44 of the 50 United States, as well as right here two years ago. On Sunday, July 14 at 6:00 pm, Michael James Mette and his band (his children!) will be sharing a concert here in the MRC. His music is a modern reflection of his faith blending alternative rock with faith-based lyrics. The concert includes the whole family, lights, video, music, and testimonies. A free-will offering will be received to support their ministry. And after the show, we will have hot dogs and snow cones!

Archbishop Carlson's Statement on the Missouri Stands for the Unborn Act

Message from the Archdiocese of St. Louis:

We are very blessed to share Archbishop Robert Carlson’s statement (click here) on the Missouri Stands for the Unborn Act, which just passed the Missouri Legislature. It is now going before Governor Mike Parson who has strongly expressed support of this bill.  

In addition, the links to the St. Louis Review article and Missouri Catholic Conference statement about this historic, pro-life law are below:

·         Missouri Catholic Conference: https://mocatholic.org/blog/missouri-stands-unborn-act-heads-governor-parsons-desk

 Thank you to every individual, family, parish, and pro-life and Catholic organization that prayed, contacted their representatives, and worked so diligently to make this law a reality. These efforts are truly a lived response to the Gospel call to promote the dignity of every human life from conception through natural death.
