Upcoming Events

Online Giving Now Available!

After careful consideration and research, our Finance Commission has agreed to introduce an additional opportunity to make donations to our parish by using electronic funds transfer.  We have partnered with Parish Giving to offer this program to our parishioners, or anyone who would like to make a contribution to our parish.  We believe it to be convenient and secure for both you and our Parish.  The online giving enables you, the user:

  • The ability to choose the date and frequency of contributions,
  • The ability to make one time donations if desired, or the ability to select the day of the month for recurring contributions to be processed,
  • The choice of credit card donations or bank transfer (payment withdrawn from your checking/savings account) donations,
  • The ability to edit or cancel scheduled donations at any time.

To get started, simply click on the Parish Giving logo below and follow the easy registration instructions.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Bryce Ackerman by phone at (620) 408-8464 or by e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.; or Tena Gleason at (620) 385-2835 or by e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  You may also contact Parish Giving directly at (866) 307-7140.

The Finance Commission is excited to have the ability to offer the convenience of electronic transactions for the benefit of both you and our Parish.  We also want to stress the contribution envelope and collection basket routine will continue as we are currently doing.  The electronic transfer is an additional option that can be utilized to make donations to our parish - or maybe a combination of both methods will be of most benefit to you.

We hope you will take a few minutes of your time to enroll in the electronic Parish Giving opportunity.  Once again, we would like to emphasize that you personally maintain full control over your account so you can change or adjust your offering in any way needed as well as the point that nobody at our church has any access to your secure information.  At home or away from home, your stewardship contributions can now become easily managed!

  • German plans for binding Synod violate Church law, Vatican says (CNA)
    Plans by the German Catholic bishops to hold a Synod that would establish new policies are “not ecclesiologically valid,” the Vatican has warned. Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, has written to Cardinal Reinhard Marx, the president of the German bishops’ conference, emphasizing that the German bishops’ meeting must not attempt changes in Church teaching or discipline. Cardinal Ouellet enclosed a legal analysis by Archbishop Filippo Iannone, the head of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, explaining that a national bishops’ conference cannot decide issues that involve the universal Church.
  • Pope explains gift of St. Peter's relics to Orthodox Patriarch (Vatican Press Office)
    In a letter to Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, Pope Francis explains that he sent the bones of St. Peter to the Orthodox leader because “I sensed it would be highly significant were some fragments of the relics of the Apostle Peter to be place beside the relics of the Apostle Andrew.” He said that the unprecedented gift was “a confirmation of the journey that our churches have made in drawing closer to one another.”
  • Priests in Tasmania to face up to 21 years in jail if they fail to report abuse revealed in Confession (The Australian)
    “People in religious ministry (will now be) mandatory reporters of child sexual abuse, even when they have obtained that knowledge in the confessional,” said Elise Archer, attorney general of the Australian island state (map).
