St. John Paul II Parish formed by merger of two parishes in Affton

St. John Paul II is the new name of the merged St. Dominic Savio and St. George Parishes in Affton. 

Parishioners had submitted choices for a new name for the parish along with a rationale for that name. A parish communications committee and pastor Father Paul Rothschild narrowed the choices to four and submitted the names to Archbishop Robert J. Carlson.

The two parishes will begin worshiping together at St. George Church on Sunday, May 20.

St. Dominic Savio students sold on partnership with Holy Cross Academy

Sixth-grade students from St. Dominic Savio visited Holy Cross Academy for a shadow day Jan. 26. St. Dominic will be entering as part of the Holy Cross Academy family next year. Caitlin Brasser showed Grace Lorentz the Lego robot she built for her Clavius Project.

Only two hours into his shadowing expedition, Aaron Sitner was pretty much sold on the new partnership between his parish school at St. Dominic Savio in Affton and Holy Cross Academy.

A sixth-grader this year, Sitner will be a seventh-grader next year at Holy Cross middle school on the Annunciation Parish campus in Webster Groves. He and St. Dominic Savio classmates shadowed Holy Cross sixth-graders for the day Jan. 26.
