Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann:
"...your marriages well-lived can inspire others to desire faithful and committed love. Your self-sacrifice as Christian parents to lay down your life in service of your families can motivate others to experience the abundant life that results from your losing your life in service to others..."

A Collection for the Crisis in Iraq, syria, and Gaza
Pope Francis decries, “Christians and other religious minorities have been forced to flee from their homes and witness the destruction of their places of worship and religious patrimony” in Syria and Iraq. Catholic Relief Services is providing humanitarian aid to support refugees who have fled these violent areas and also to support victims of the conflict in Gaza. Much more needs to be done to allow CRS and other Catholic agencies working in partnership with the local Church to meet the most urgent humanitarian needs facing our affected brothers and sisters in the Middle East. Parishes in our Archdiocese will take up a special collection to assist Catholic aid agencies on the weekends of September 6 & 7 or 13 & 14. Checks should be made out to the parish. Thank you for your generosity!
Mass of Thanksgiving
KCK Abortion Clinic Closes Permanently!!
Saturday, Sept 6
Sts. Cyril & Methodius
44 N. Mill St.
Kansas City, Ks 66101
Join Archbishop Joseph Naumann for Mass and rosary procession to the closed abortion clinic in KCK. After nine years this will be our final monthly Mass and rosary procession at this location. (Watch for upcoming details for our new plans at Planned Parenthood.)
We have much to celebrate and be thankful for with the closing of this clinic. Many lives will be saved. We also have more work to do, as there are two abortion clinics remaining in our archdiocesan boundaries, both in Overland Park.
Please join Archbishop for this Mass of Thanksgiving.
