First stop: St. Louis.DSC03314

Saint Viator High School alumni attending Saint Louis University, Washington University, St. Louis College of Pharmacy, Fontbonne University and Webster University were able to return to their roots this month, through this year’s Lionpalooza Tour.

They gathered in Jesuit Hall on the campus of St. Louis University for a Mass, celebrated by Fr. Corey Brost, CSV, followed by lunch and time to get caught up. Students also found out ways they can remain involved in the Viatorian mission.Lionpalooza - St. Louis

“I want our alums to know that we are committed to their spiritual growth through college — and beyond,” says Fr. Corey Brost, CSV, president.

Accompanying Fr. Brost on this trip was Chris Wells, director of alumni relations, as well as Br. John Eustice, CSV, director of vocation ministry for the Clerics of St. Viator.

“I was impressed at the response,” Br. Eustice said. “They really liked making the connection and made it a priority to be there.”

Alumni learned about the Belize Immersion Trip coming up in December, sponsored by the Viatorians, and ways to serve as young adult leaders at next summer’s Viatorian Youth Congress.

“It’s a way for us to reach out to our college alumni and let them know that we’re there for them and that we’re thinking of them,” Br. Eustice says. “What better way to do that than to join with them in prayer and in receiving the Eucharist.”
