If you or anyone you know needs help please call the parish office (573-635-7991). The parish office staff will pass on your information to the DRT so we can provide assistance.

Please also keep an eye on your neighbors and let us know if they are in need of assistance. In this time of crisis, the parish DRT is here to help anyone within our parish boundaries.

Stay healthy and God bless. We can make it through these uncertain times together through God s strength.
