The St. Louis Men’s Society, as it has come to be known, has been the nucleus of the active participation of men in the parish during the past 136 years.

The membership currently consists of approximately 280 men of all ages and backgrounds. Officers of the Society include president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and dues collector. Positions of Society trustees (4) , mutual aid director and sergeant at arms are also installed. Through leadership and work by its generous members, the Society is highly visible in many parish ministry activities involving spiritual, physical, financial and charitable support.
