The entire St. Louis parish and school community is invited to The King’s Tavern at Casa Chapala to eat and drink at happy hour prices, hear a talk about how God works in our lives, and spend some time making friends within the parish and school community. Catholic theology, beer, and good food. A heavenly combination!

Next Monday, October 30th, Kathryn Whitaker will join us to talk about God’s role in her family’s life during their most difficult times. Kathryn is a mother of six, a NICU parent, and a Catholic blogger. All are welcome to attend, and the evening is family friendly.

We’d love to see you at Casa Chapala next Monday at 6:30pm. Happy Hour prices last until 7:30pm when Kathryn will begin her talk. The night wraps up shortly after Whitakerthat, but you’re free to stay as long as Casa Chapala is open. See you Monday!
