A Decade of Continuing Education

What makes the Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas Continuing Education Program different from other programs? This is not a question we are asked often, however, we strongly believe and strive to differentiate ourselves.

For ten years we have kept things consistent so our audience knows what to expect year over year. For $75 registrants will enjoy a light breakfast, lunch, and hear from speakers covering various and timely topics equivalent to four CE credits.

What sets us apart is Mass with Archbishop Joseph Naumann, which kicks off the event at 8:00 a.m. in the large chapel of the Savior Pastoral Center, and building a network of Catholic professionals in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.

This year, you may recognize some of our speakers, and be pleased to hear some new voices gracing us with knowledge.

We hope to see you on Friday, June 7, 2019 at one of our convenient locations: Savior Pastoral Center - Kansas City, or LIVE streamed at Christ the King - Topeka, and Didde Catholic Campus Center - Emporia. To register or view topics and speakers, click here

CFNEK: Planned Giving Advisory Council

The Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas joined the Office of Stewardship and Development of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas for the first Planned Giving Advisory Council meeting two weeks ago at Holy Spirit, Overland Park. Among the 15 professional advisors serving, Shirley Antes, CFNEK Board Member, is a representative from the Board to the Council. Shirley assisted with the Planned Giving Initiative that began in 2009 and wrapped up in 2018. We look forward to the success of this new Planned Giving partnership!

We are very excited to share this resource with the priests, development staff, parishioners, and professional advisors in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. If you have any questions, please contact plannedgiving@archkck.org
