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  • The choice of credit card donations or bank transfer (payment withdrawn from your checking/savings account) donations,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!

  • Cardinal Müller rips working document for Amazon Synod (CNA)
    Cardinal Gerhard Müllehr as issued a strong statement criticizing the working document for the Amazon Synod. The former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith sees the document as making “a radical U-turn from the hermeneutics of Catholic theology.” In particular he decries the references to “cosmovision,” and rejects the suggestion that “there are new sources of Revelation.” He also criticizes the document for “flattery” aimed at Pope Francis, and says “the text could easily be cut down to half the length or less.”
  • USCCB president condemns threat of widespread immigration enforcement actions, new rule drastically limiting asylum (USCCB)
    On July 14, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) launched a nationwide deportation sweep that President Donald Trump had announced, delayed, and re-announced. On July 16, an interim final rule on asylum, announced the previous day, went into effect; under the rule, “asylum-seeking immigrants who pass through a third country en route to the US must first apply for refugee status in that country rather than at the US border,” NPR reported. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo commented, “It is contrary to American and Christian values to attempt to prevent people from migrating here when they are fleeing to save their lives and to find safety for their families.”
