Next Mass Mob Nov. 26 celebrates feast of Christ the King in University City

Mass Mob arrives at Little Flower in Richmond Heights

Father Lawrence Herzog celebrated the first all school Mass of the year. Little Flower Parish in Richmond Heights will host the next St. Louis Mass Mob. Formally dedicated on Dec. 18, 1949, the church is totally in the round with the altar in the very center of the building; the pews form a circle around the altar.

Students at Little Flower School explained that being planted right in the middle of a neighborhood is what makes their school appealing.

"Everybody knows everybody, and they're all friendly to each other," said sixth-grader Hunter Mueller, whose family has been part of the parish for nearly 80 years. And for the record — Mueller, who is in the same class as his first cousin Sophia Mueller, has only a 10-minute commute by foot.

Our Lady of the Presentation to host Mass Mob

The parish has come a long way, becoming a beacon for the Catholic faithful in the north St. Louis County community of Overland. The parish will celebrate its history at the next St. Louis Mass Mob on Sunday, July 9.
