St. Anselm Church in Creve Coeur celebrates the third Sunday in Advent this weekend.
The following message from Fr. Michael Brunner to members of the St. Anselm Parish in Creve Coeur was shared in the church's weekly bulletin: Anticipation and reality can be somewhat different. I was a Junior in high school when Bishop Fulton J. Sheen was appointed Bishop of Rochester, NY, my home diocese. That name might not mean much to most of you under 60 years of age, but he was a television superstar who out-polled the great comedian Milton Berle who was on during the same time spot. He was also the widely known head of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, the central fundraiser for the missions. The city was ecstatic at his appointment.

St. Anselm Parish in Creve Coeur has a new pastor, just in time for the holidays.

The funeral for the Priory School seventh grade student was Monday. Patch invites you to share your memories in the Comments section of this article.
Brandon Hsueh, the 13 year-old Priory School student who passed away Friday after suffering critical injuries Wednesday, will be remembered at events this week. Brandon was hurt in a car accident while he was practicing with his cross country team off campus. His funeral was held Monday morning at the Episcopal Church of St. Michael & St. George in Clayton. Hsueh was a student at St. Michael prior to enrolling at Priory. He was mourned by a capacity crowd which heard his father, Dr. Eddy Hsueh, talk about a boy who would often share his pencils with those who asked, content with what he had when given the chance to upgrade to a newer gadget. Reverend Andrew John Archie praised his creativity and artwork, which was on display for a …
