Youth coordinator leaving St. Louis church to enter seminary


April 07, 1994|By SALLY BUCKLER

After three years as coordinator of the youth ministry at St. Louis Catholic Church in Clarksville, Chuck Wible knows what he wants to do.

The poet, musician and teacher will leave St. Louis on June 1 to enter St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore to join the Archdiocese of Baltimore as a priest.

His schedule has him entering the formation program, becoming a deacon in November 1995, with ordination set for the spring of 1996.

At St. Louis he has been dedicated to working with the parish youth.

He serves as a counselor and helps parish young adults plan and carry out such activities as dances, trips, game nights, team sports, Italian dinners and car washes.

People who have worked with Mr. Wible appreciate his sensitivity and his dedication to the young people of St. Louis.

The pastoral staff will miss his gentle manner and caring interaction, said Gloria Sauter, director of religious education.

The St. Louis Catholic Youth Ministry is sponsoring a sock hop with music exclusively from the '50s and '60s.

It begins at 7 p.m. tomorrow at the Parish hall. Admission is $3, but only $2 if you wear a '60s costume. Members and friends are invited to join the fun. Call 531-6668 for more information.

Mr. Williams has recorded extensively, including his own CD, "Introducing Tom Williams." Tickets are $5, available from band members and at the door.
