Altar Rosary Society
The St. Louis Altar Rosary Society (ARS) is an active ladies organization which takes care of the immediate needs of the altar, promotes praying the Rosary, and prepares funeral dinners.
All ladies of St. Louis Parish, age 18 and older, are members of the Altar Rosary Society. Dues are $10 per year for those considered active members.
Throughout the year the ARS offers retreats for women, prays the Rosary before Mass, collects sponsors for the Right to Life Ad campaign, and holds a spring flower sale as a fundraiser among a host of other activities and events.
Each year a mass is offered for the deceased members of the Altar Rosary Society. Continue to pray for the reposed souls of our departed sisters in Christ.

An Election Prayer to Mary
O Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, at this most critical time, we entrust the United States of America to your loving care.
Most Holy Mother, we beg you to reclaim this land for the glory of your Son. Overwhelmed with the burden of the sins of our nation, we cry to you from the depths of our hearts and seek refuge in your motherly protection.
Look down with mercy upon us and touch the hearts of our people. Open our minds to the great worth of human life and to the responsibilities that accompany human freedom.
Free us from the falsehoods that lead to the evil of abortion and threaten the sanctity of family life. Grant our country the wisdom to proclaim that God’s law is the foundation on which this nation was founded, and that He alone is the True Source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
O Merciful Mother, give us the courage to reject the culture of death and the strength to build a new Culture of Life. Amen.
Mary, the Immaculate Conception, pray for us.
In 1847 the Bishops of the United States requested permission from the Holy Father, Pope Pius IX, to declare the
Blessed Virgin Mary as patroness of the United States
under the title of "The Immaculate Conception."
This title reflects Mary's privilege of being free from Original Sin
