Interested in STEM and developing robotics? Playing with robots isn't just for little kids anymore. St. Louis Catholic High School will soon be launching a robotics club to participate in the VEX Robotics Competition. VEX competitions allow students to expand their natural science and engineering abilities and further develop their STEM skills. These competitions not only involve the engineering design and the building and programming of robots, but they also encourage students to develop marketing, communication, and branding skills for business and technology in the 21st century.
Tournaments are held annually at the state, national and world championship levels. The group will have 6-10 person teams that will track the creative process of the robot, market the robot with team branding, and compete with their robotic creation. The club is seeking team sponsors and funding to cover the costs of supplies to build the competition robots. Competitions will be with other high schools in the area and across the state.

The Corporal Works of Mercy
The Corporal Works of Mercy are found in the teachings of Jesus and give us a model for how we should treat all others, as if they were Christ in disguise. They "are charitable actions by which we help our neighbors in their bodily needs" (USCCA). They respond to the basic needs of humanity as we journey together through this life.
The seven Corporal Works of Mercy are listed below. After each work of mercy there are also suggestions and words of advice for living them out in our daily lives.
***Camps for Sports Team can not be used, as well as hours worked for school events*** (Spring Fest, Auction, Golf Tournament & Bingo, etc)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DEC. 1, 2022
LAKE CHARLES — Land has been purchased for a new home for St. Louis Catholic High School — the next
step in its recovery from the 2020 hurricanes. The new site is a 47-acre tract on Corbina Road in east
St. Louis Catholic, the Diocese of Lake Charles’ lone Catholic high school, was largely destroyed by
Hurricane Laura in 2020. It has operated as a temporary campus in modular buildings in the time since.
“We are excited to announce this purchase for several reasons,” said the Rev. Nathan Long, rector of St.
Louis Catholic High School. “Practically, because this means we can begin adding structures the very
moment the funding becomes available. Symbolically, because this means the future is wide open to St.
Louis Catholic. We will have 47 acres on which to grow and form lifelong Saints.”
With the school’s current storm-damaged campus limited to approximately 15.5 acres, the new, larger
property offers opportunities to expand.
“Curriculum development requires the right facilities, ministry opportunities call for a beautiful worship
space, and reaching more students means more classrooms,” Long said. “All of this will soon be
possible. We will all be blessed to have a school that truly addresses future needs: one that can navigate the tough cultural waters ahead, allow for growth over time, and honor God through worship in a full-
The recovery process has taken more than two years to reach this milestone. "Just as with our black-
eyed Saint mascot, it’s not the challenges and obstacles that define us — it’s how we refuse to give up the fight,” said Mia Touchet, principal. “That’s what makes this place so special."
In the new year, the milestone — the acquisition of the property for the new campus — will be
commemorated with a “ground blessing” and community celebration at the site.
“While this process has not been comfortable or easy, I believe that in the end it will have been worth
the wait and challenges,” Long said. “No longer will we have doubts such as ‘Can we do it?’ now that we
have the space. We would always much rather say yes to our students’ educational and formational
Touchet said, “Future Saints and their families will look back and recognize the dedication and
perseverance of this school community in making this project become a reality. Like the leaders from
our three founding schools in 1971 — St. Charles Academy, Landry Memorial and Sacred Heart High
School — we envision a bright future for generations to come.”
