Mass Of Remembrance

There will be a special Mass of Remembrance celebrated on Thursday, November 3 at 11:30am at St. Elizabeth's Church. At that time the names of any of your loved ones that you provide will be remembered in a very special way. If you are unable to attend this Mass but would like to have your loved ones mentioned in this service, please call Therese Roseburrough at 816-444-2219, or Carolyn Sawyer, 816-942-3442, and their name/names will get recorded in the Book of Remembrance. A luncheon will follow Mass in Seton Hall. All are welcome to attend both the Mass and the Luncheon. Comfort in the Word will NOT meet in November, as this special Mass will be in place of our regular meeting.



Facility Utilization Study Results

One of the goals of our recent together we are a legacy visioning process was:

"Through careful research and planning and a deep sense of ownership of our parish, identify the best configuration of our physical space and commit resources to needed improvements to support our parish mission." 

As we continue to move forward to bring these goals to action we recently shared the results of our Facility Utilization Study conducted by SFS Architects. Below you will find the concepts and results that SFS presented at the parish meeting on 9/11/16.

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.

Thank you to all who have pledged or given to the Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA). If you are still considering your ability to join the Appeal, please realize that we all benefit from the programs and services that the Appeal supports. Educating children in Catholic Schools, training of future priests in seminaries, reaching out to the poor to provide housing and food for their families, and helping ensure healthy marriages are all direct benefits of your gift. You will find pledge envelopes next to the bulletins or you may pick one up in the parish office. Please use these envelopes to help us meet our financial goal of $59,769 to enable the Catholic Church in Northwest Missouri to be a beacon of hope to those in need.

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. 


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.

"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 ourselve.s"

"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."
