Note from Fr. Welsch - June 23

Dear St. John Bosco Parishioners,
This coming weekend here at St. John Bosco we will be celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation for 20 young men and women. Obviously they should have been confirmed much early than this, but Covid19 had a much different plan. This coming weekend I will have the privilege of Confirming these 20 young men and women  here at St. John Bosco. I know that the older generation worried about us, and now we are worried about these young people as they face the uncertainty of the future. Let us pray that each of them receives the Gifts of the Holy Spirit: Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord. These gifts will be very important to them as they grow in Grace and Love.
We are still not obligated to attend Mass on Sunday. We will continue to communicate via the website as we continue to plan for Mass. Streaming of Sunday Mass at 9:30 a.m. will continue indefinitely. We encourage you to use the website to keep yourself updated, and if you know of parishioners that do not have computers, please share via phone, the updates as they occur. Reminder the church will be closed Saturday and Sunday beginning at Noon.
Rev. Gerard R. Welsch

Welcome to our Parish

Pentecost Sunday



One of the richest blessings of our St John Bosco parish family is our strong sense of tradition. From our original founding as a parish community in 1972, St John Bosco has been home for families who take great pride in our faith and the sense of tradition that has permeated our history.

Resuming Mass Updates - Temporary Schedule

May 12 - Archbishop Robert Carlson has announced that parishes in the Archdiocese of St. Louis are permitted to begin resuming public Masses on Monday, May 18, at the discretion of each individual parish pastor.


Currently - For updates regarding resuming Mass at St. John Bosco, please see the bulletin each week. The Church will be open from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM daily for private prayer. Please maintain social distancing guidelines and wear masks while in the church.


Currently - The general dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation will remain in place for all Catholics of the archdiocese until further notice, as many individuals continue to have concerns for the health and safety of themselves and their loved ones. 



Website - New Look

For a variety of free resources to strengthen, encourage and keep us connected while we are physically apart, please see the following resources:



Contains a variety of prayers, songs, and reflections related to the weekly Gospel message and the current crisis.


Here you can find online resources for Mass, the scripture readings, and ideas for enhancing participation. 


Read the current bulletin, Parish School of Religion Weekly Newsletter, Loyola Press' "Finding God" newsletter, and review previous editions published since the time of social distancing.


Provides educational opportunities to understand one's faith so that children can come to know God through study of liturgy, liturgical year, sacraments, and scripture.


Enjoy some humor, work a puzzle or play a game: this is for all ages and updated often to relate to the Sunday Gospel.


Preview seasonal pictures of the Church and coming soon-take a walk down "Memory Lane."
