Once again this year, an anonymous group of donors has generously agreed to match dollar-for-dollar any contributions that are made to the St. Elizabeth Heritage Fund.
Our vision is to maintain St. Elizabeth School as one of the leading Catholic elementary schools in the Kansas City area. Our mission is to strengthen the existing school's financial stability and celebrate its outstanding educational heritage.
The Heritage Fund was created by a group of former school parents because they value the quality education their children received years ago and want the same to continue for our current and future students: an education rooted in the Catholic faith, with an emphasis on giving back and with high academic standards.

I hope you have noticed the images of our RCIA at the doors of the church. We have a wonderful group of men and women journeying to Initiation at the Easter Vigil. Lent heightens their preparation, and it is our privilege to walk with them in prayer. The journey of Lent prepares us to celebrate the mystery of Easter with renewed freedom, joy and clarity. As Lent calls us to pray, include the RCIA in your prayers.
Our Visioning process is complete, and now we move into implementation of the Recommendations that emerged from it. We will focus on areas of (1) Leadership and Ministry (2) Liturgy, Prayer and Faith Formation (3) Community Building, Hospitality and Stewardship (4) Service and Outreach (5) St. Elizabeth School (6) Financial Resources and (7) Physical Space. While those are broad categories, there are more specific directives under each which will direct us in the near future. This Visioning gives us the opportunity to claim our legacy, recognize the part we all play in it and continue to build upon it. Together, we are a legacy!
Peace, Fr. Greg
