Outpatient mental health office opens in Herculaneum

Catholic Family Services has opened an outpatient mental health office in Herculaneum to serve children and families in Jefferson County.

The office opened after Catholic Family Services received a three-year grant of more than $500,000 from the Jefferson Memorial Community Foundation. Therapists will provide individual and family therapy services to those seeking support and those who may be mandated for treatment.

Closing Mass set for Assumption Parish in Herculaneum

A century ago, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in Herculaneum was founded due to growth in employment at lead smelters in the community and with a donation of land by the mining company.

Now, after the closure of the remaining lead smelter and purchase of the parish property by the mining firm, Assumption Parish will hold a closing Mass Sunday, April 24. Parishioners will be welcomed the next weekend at four parishes that will assume the parish's territorial boundaries — Good Shepherd in Hillsboro, Our Lady in Festus, Sacred Heart in Crystal City and St. Joseph in Imperial.
