IMPORTANT NOTICE

Dear Families,


As the COVID-19 pandemic dictates how we live today, it is clear that the necessary step to pull out of this crisis is the vaccination of the population. As Catholics, we are called to make moral decisions for living in community with others. You are invited to read statements from the Vatican and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to be properly informed of the Church's position regarding vaccination for Covid-19.

Registration 2021-2022

The Office of Religious Education strives to develop a strong sense of faith and Catholic identity in the youngest members of our church through young adulthood. We aspire to cultivate personal relationships for each child with our Lord Jesus Christ. Through these means, each child will become a living missionary disciple of Christ whose character and life are witnesses to His sacred teachings in the Gospels.

On Pilgrimage with Father Emil Kapaun

  • Each year at the beginning of summer hundreds of pilgrims walk 60 miles in the plains of Kansas to the hometown of Servant of God Emil Kapaun. They do it not only to remember the heroic Catholic priest and Army chaplain who is on the path to sainthood, but to discover how they can better continue on their own path to sainthood. Will you answer the Lord’s call to journey with us towards heaven?

  • Log into FORMED.org (Instructions for FORMED are listed above)

  • Go to the search bar, type in On Pilgrimage with Father Emil Kapaun, it will be the first option that shows up.
