Look for the Christmas “Stars” in the back of Church the weekends of Nov. 19/20, 26/27 and Dec. 3/4. St. Vincent DePaul coordinates gifts to families in need that include a frozen turkey, grocery gift card, and various gift items. You can help by taking a “Star” and purchasing the item. Please consider purchasing gift cards thru Scrip! Simply leave your "Star" and your purchased gift card with the Scrip rep and they will deliver them to SVDP! All other Stars and gifts should be returned to Church or the PMC by the weekend of Dec 3/4. St. Vincent DePaul also accepts monetary donations to help offset the cost of the frozen Turkeys and un-purchased gifts! Contact Lisa Anielak at email@example.com, or the Parish Office at
816-523-2405, for more information.
El Salvador Mission Trip
St. Elizabeth’s is sponsoring a mission trip to El Salvador from January 25 to February 1, 2017. This is an invitation to join the St. Elizabeth’s delegation traveling there. You will have the opportunity to learn about the history of El Salvador, visit historic sites, including the home of Blessed Oscar Romero, tour the mountainous countryside and experience Salvadoran cuisine. Most importantly, you will meet and spend time with the people of
El Salvador, including those from St. Elizabeth’s sister communities. You will also see the results of the Romero Community Building Project, which is a project to build 75 homes and a community center for the members of the Romero Community. Join the St. Elizabeth’s delegation and see for yourself why St. Elizabeth’s parishioners who have traveled to El Salvador look forward to returning there. As
Fr. Dean Brackley, a Jesuit who lived and worked in El Salvador for
22 years, said, “I tell you that you will fall in love with the people of
El Salvador and you will be hooked for life.” To reserve your spot, or for more information, contact Joel Jones 816-509-6988, Kerm Fendler (913-488-7790) or Ellen Fendler (816-309-1222). Space is limited; call now!

Your donation, doubled.
Once again this year, an anonymous group of donors has generously agreed to match dollar-for-dollar any contributions that are made to the St. Elizabeth Heritage Fund.
Our vision is to maintain St. Elizabeth School as one of the leading Catholic elementary schools in the Kansas City area. Our mission is to strengthen the existing school's financial stability and celebrate its outstanding educational heritage.
The Heritage Fund was created by a group of former school parents because they value the quality education their children received years ago and want the same to continue for our current and future students: an education rooted in the Catholic faith, with an emphasis on giving back and with high academic standards.

Facility Utilization Study Results
One of the goals of our recent together we are a legacy visioning process was:
This is the first of many steps in the process. It is a work in progress and a journey that will evolve and develop as we move forward. Nothing has been designed or committed to at this point. What was presented is our jumping off point as a parish as we move forward to discuss, discern and pray about the future of our parish and our facilities.
