If you receive a copy of Matthew Kelly's book "The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic" at church this Christmas -- hold on to it. There's something exciting coming along with it in the new year.
Archbishop Robert J. Carlson recently announced the establishment of "Dynamic Catholic Alive!" a four-year archdiocesan-wide collaborative of parishes, offices, apostolates and individual Catholics to build up the Church as part of our universal baptismal call. Each year will build upon one of the four signs that Kelly identifies in his book: prayer, study, generosity and evangelization.
Most Holy Trinity Parish in north St. Louis is collecting bicycles for the young people of Hyde Park. The bikes will be given away at a Christmas in July barbeque held in the parish garden Saturday, July 26. If you have a bicycle of any size in working condition that you would like to donate, contact the parish office at (314)241-9165. You can arrange to bring the bicycle to the parish, or have a member of the bicycle project committee pick it up at your house.

The Basilica of St. Louis King of France, better known as the Old Cathedral, is considered the heartbeat of the Arch grounds, and the church's restoration is an important part of a project to connect and reinvigorate those grounds.
Maggie Hales, executive director of CityArchRiver 2015, made that remark at a gathering June 3 at the Old Cathedral sponsored by the Campaign to Restore the Old Cathedral. Work on the restoration is progressing, with scaffolding showing evidence of the progress. Some $7 million has been raised, and $2 million more is being sought.
