100 Years of Faith, Family, and Community
Calling all parishioners! Please join Fr. Greg walking in the 2017 Brookside St. Patrick’s 37th Annual Warm-Up Parade on Saturday, March 11, 2017. We would like to have at least 100 parishioners join the CPTA in representing St. Elizabeth's Centennial to our Brookside and Waldo neighbors. All are welcome for this fun, family-friendly event. Sign up today at www.stekc.org and come show your STE Irish pride.
On September 9, 1917, Fr. Edward J. Hays celebrated St. Elizabeth's first Mass in a rented storefront at 411 W. 75th St. in Waldo. One hundred years later more 900 families continue the legacy that was started that day. On September 9, 2017, Bishop Johnston will celebrate 4:30 Mass at St. Elizabeth in honor of the parish's first 100 years. Mark your calendar and stay tuned for additional details and 2017 events.
Anyone having stories, memories or photos to share of the church, school or parish life may send them to email@example.com or contact the parish office at 816-523-2405.
Have you heard? The bells are ringing again!
We have heard from many parishioners and neighbors that they are pleased to once again share this call to daily and Sunday Mass, and announcing the Angelus throughout the day. Several generous donors have already made contributions towards the cost of replacing the control system and clappers. If you would like to make a contribution to help offset these costs please note "bells" on your check, or click here to donate online.
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.
