Happy Mardi Gras!

We hope that you enjoy today’s “Fat Tuesday” in preparation for tomorrow’s Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Holy season of Lent.

Many Catholics fast during Lent, as well as pray and give alms, in order to develop a closer connection to God. Thank you for your continued support of your parishes, schools and ministries and for our organization. We strive to contribute to the public good through the management of assets of the Catholic Church in Northeast Kansas. In order to sustain the endowments and other funds of the Church, your faithful leadership and sacrificial support is always appreciated.

Lenten blessings to each of you.

CFAC: Archbishop's High School Art Exhibit

Last Friday was the opening reception of the High School Art Exhibit at Savior Pastoral Center. Members of the Catholic Fine Arts Council, joined by teachers, parents, and their students enjoyed prayer in the Chapel with Fr. Gerard Alba, and a musical performance by Fr. Kent O'Connor. Archbishop Joseph Naumann and Dr. Kathy O'Hara, Superintendent of Catholic Schools, awarded eight students with the highest scores based on a variety of criteria.

CFNEK - CE Program Save the Date

We can't believe that three months from this week, Friday, June 7, 2019, is the 10th annual St. Thomas More Continuing Education Program. We have awarded continuing education credits over 500 times through the years, creating a culture among Catholic professionals, and delivering robust content relevant for all disciplines. It is our mission to provide resources to all of Northeast Kansas, thus the driving force behind expanding to a second remote site at Didde Catholic Campus Center in Emporia, KS!

After thorough planning by the committee, we have confirmed our speakers and topics. We hope you will join us for this milestone! To view the 2019 schedule and speakers, click here. More details to come!
