A Message from the Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas

Fellow Members of our Northeast Kansas Catholic Community,

The Board of Directors and staff of the Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas want to reassure you, our donors, grant recipients and partners, that the Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas is here for you during this unprecedented time.

We have never experienced a Lenten season quite like this one, however, we continue to be inspired by the creative ways our parishes, schools, and ministries are keeping the faith alive and the faithful engaged. We have seen many of our parishes live stream Mass, principals and teachers sharing encouraging videos, and drive by confession booths ensuring safe social distancing.

While we support the shelter in place and cancellation of group gathering regulations in an effort to flatten the curve of COVID 19, we know what this has meant for the livelihood of many of our parishes, schools, and ministries: school, Mass, and events all cancelled. 

We strive to be a resource of support for the parishes, schools, and ministries in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas - helping in any way we can. That is why we have partnered, again, with #iGiveCatholic for "#iGiveCatholic Together". A spin off of the normally Giving Tuesday campaign to provide our parishes, schools, and ministries an opportunity to engage their parishioners and constituents during these unique circumstances. 

This separate effort launched at the end of March and we have already seen the generosity in our community flowing in.

"What a blessing for those parishes and ministries that don't have an established online giving portal", said Abbey Weber, Development Director, Didde Catholic Campus Center, Emporia.

If you have questions or concerns about helping our parishes, schools, and ministries during this time, please contact us at cfnek@archkck.org.

Have a very blessed Easter Sunday!

The Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas
