As part of the recent capital campaign at Ste. Genevieve Parish in Ste. Genevieve, the former Rozier Building was remodeled and renamed The DuBourg Centre. It now houses the Valle Catholic School Early Childhood Center, Valle's band and performing arts center, a fitness center, St. Vincent De Paul Society, a banquet center and several parish meeting rooms. On Jan. 31, more than 250 guests from neighboring parishes in Ste. Genevieve County toured the new center, and Auxiliary Bishop Edward M. Rice dedicated the center after a Mass.
'The Light Is On'
Students tested their knowledge at Msgr. Charles Forst's annual Catholic Schools Week trivia contest last month at St. Mark School in Affton. The 93-year-old retired priest, who teaches religion lessons weekly to students, started the tradition several years ago. He said the annual event is a way to celebrate the school's Catholic identity, all while learning and having a little fun, too.
