St. Louis Archdiocese: No More Beer at Catholic Youth Events

The rule only prohibits alcohol at events that are predominantly for children, something Huber is happy to see.

"I've been kind of uncomfortable selling beer at kiddie events," says Huber, who's been at his parish for four months. "It is going to teach our kids that you can go to a sporting event, you can have fun without beer."

An advisory committee of clergy unanimously approved the new rule, which states alcohol cannot be served to or brought in by anyone, in September.
