Approximately 91 cents out of every dollar raised through the Annual Appeal goes back into the community in the form of direct services.

It was announced recently that St. Elizabeth Academy in South St. Louis City would be closing after 130 years of educating young women in this area of the City of St. Louis. SEA is a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood, O'Fallon, Missouri. Announcing the closing, school president Sister Susan Borgel said:
"For more than a century, St. Elizabeth Academy has made a positive difference in the lives of thousands of young women, carrying out our mission to develop the successful woman inside each girl. That is why this was such a heartbreaking decision. However after more than three years of discussion, intense research, input, and prayer we see no other way. Sadly the declining enrollment, the increasing deficit, and the cost of maintaining the aging physical plant make it no longer feasible to continue.”
Many young woman from St. Pius School and Parish attended St. Elizabeth Academy, and we congratulate the school and the Most Precious Blood Sisters for their dedication and commitment to educating young women in the Catholic tradition for these past 130 years.
