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, November 13th, Fr. James will talk about “Living a Moral Life: How ought we live in the world today?”  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 Fr. James begins his talk. The night wraps up shortly after that, but you’re free to stay as long as Casa Chapala is open. See you Monday!
