Students’ winning artwork captures Christmas joy

Elise McIntyre and Molly Arft both had their artwork chosen for the Missionary Childhood Association annual Christmas Artwork Contest.

Christmas joy is captured in the artwork of two Catholic school students from the archdiocese chosen as national winners in the Missionary Childhood Association Christmas Artwork Contest.

A winning submission from Molly Arft, a fourth-grader at Holy Infant School in Ballwin, depicts an angel singing with a sleeping, smiling baby Jesus in front of her. The other winning entry, from Elise McIntyre, a second-grader at St. Justin Martyr School in Sunset Hills, shows Mary holding baby Jesus, both with big smiles and bright eyes. Two big, bright stars shine in the background.

Catholic St. Louisans drive successful Beyond Sunday campaign

Image

The Beyond Sunday capital campaign is the outgrowth of the seed Archbishop Robert J. Carlson planted eight years ago, soon after his arrival in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.

He identified Catholic education as his top priority in the Alive! In Christ initiative, later included it among the four pillars of the beONE vision then made it the primary focus of the historic Beyond Sunday campaign, which was launched in June 2015 by the newly formed Roman Catholic Foundation of Eastern Missouri.

My, how the archbishop's education seed has grown.
