You've more than likely seen one around town. A blank billboard with one simple message in black type:
"We have faith in you, St. Louis.
— St. Louis Catholic Sisters."
Fifteen religious communities who are part of the group St. Louis Catholic Sisters have placed two dozen billboards with this message around the St. Louis area. The campaign, which coincides with National Catholic Sisters Week, March 8-14, is meant to instill pride in the community and a desire to work for its betterment, according to a press release.
