TWENTY SOMETHING | The art of giving, the challenge of Advent

Oprah Winfrey sang and clapped when presented with the $69 lunch box that made her 2017 "Favorite Things" list.

"I looooove!" she belted out in mock falsetto.

She didn't need to finish her sentence by naming the object of her love. The list of items is expansive; in a video of the selection process for her biggest gift guide, it covers 102 items, totaling $13,400 in value and ranging from a $2,000 55-inch Samsung high-definition TV down to a $10 earbud case.

All Saints Parish youth display a passion for service

Ella Elmendorf, recipient of the 2017 Cindi Sitz-Davanzo Award at All Saints Parish in St. Peters, joined other volunteers from the parish in handing out thank you gifts to parishioners for the involvement in parish stewardship after Mass.

All Saints Parish in St. Peters provides an example of encouraging stewardship among youth.

The parish gives an award in honor of the late Cindi Sitz-Davanzo, a parishioner who touched the lives of many through generous acts of service. The award encourages the youth of All Saints to carry on Sitz-Davanzo's dedication to service and stewardship. Sitz-Davanzo, who served on the pastoral council of the parish among other roles, died in 2005 at age 39.
