ST. LOUIS (AP) - Alcohol sales will be banned at youth-related events within the Archdiocese of St. Louis starting Friday.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Archdiocese of St. Louis' new policy prohibits drinking at any events directed primarily toward minors, including sporting events. That means athletic associations will no longer be able to generate revenue from beer sales at concession stands.

The change was announced by Archbishop Robert J. Carlson in a letter to parishioners last week. He says the change was passed unanimously by an advisory committee of clergy in September, but the letter did not give a reason.

Some St. Louis-area Catholics say the change will hurt parish fundraisers. Others say there's no need for alcohol and children's events.

   The Archdiocese of St. Louis is banning alcohol at events aimed at minors, like youth soccer and softball games.  A group of clergy had unanimously approved the new rule last month (September).

   In a letter to parishioners last week, Archbishop Robert Carlson wrote that alcohol at games or other events directed toward minors "is not to be served to anyone or brought in by someone."  The new rule takes effect Friday. 

   Some athletic associations are expected to lose revenue as concession stand beer sales are prohibited.   But one member of the clergy group that approved the change told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that alcohol sales were already discouraged and many parishes already barred it, so the change just makes the parishes consistent.
