Bulletin: August 6, 2017

 

 

On this day in 1917, the first St. Elizabeth Mass was celebrated. 100 years later, Bishop James V. Johnston and Father Greg Haskamp invite you to a special commemorative Mass at 4:30 pm. 


After Mass, we will continue the celebration with the

Taste of St. Elizabeth under the tent in the parking lot.

Tasty food and drink, merriment, and good old fashion fellowship for all to enjoy. Please park in the neighborhood and walk, like they did in 1917, as the church parking lot is the location of the party.

Thank You for Your Donations to the

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.

Stewardship Education

Everyone has a different story about why they are called to be a Christian steward... click on the links below to read a few from our parishioners.

"That does not sound like you."

"It's just what we do for family."

"It started with a valentine."

"God is the main Head Coach."

"Experience that awesome feeling that comes with being part of something bigger than ourselves"

"It is not an obligation to us. It is a privilege."

"How shall we make a return to the Lord for all the good He has done for us?"

"God prepared this house for us."

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait single moment before starting to change the world.”

"A Volleyball Match, a Pocket Knife and a T-shirt."

Food Pantry Volunteers Needed

As we quickly approach summer, it's time to make sure our food pantry stays in good shape! During summer months, weekly volunteers are needed to move donated food from the church to PMC. The job is much easier if you have family members to help. This job can be accomplished immediately following 10am Mass on Sunday because the church is unlocked and food donations are accessible. More detailed instructions will be given once dates have been selected. Please click here to sign up to help with this mission. Thank you SO much for your service!

Fire Foundation

FIRE was founded in 1996 by a group of parents who shared a common dream; for their children with special needs to attend their parish schools with siblings and friends. Since that time, through the efforts of parents, a dedicated board of directors, many talented volunteers and community members who embrace inclusive Catholic education, $2.5 million has been granted to partner schools in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph (MO) to support inclusive Catholic education.

The FIRE Foundation, an independent 501(c)3 organization, makes it possible for partner Catholic schools to hire special educators and paraprofessionals and to acquire learning materials and technology that create successful learning experiences for all children. Without grants from FIRE, most schools would not be able to welcome students with Down syndrome, significant learning disabilities, many who are on the Autism spectrum and students who face other special learning challenges. In inclusive learning environments, children grow up knowing and appreciating each other’s unique gifts. St. Elizabeth is a proud partner school.
