  • What topics would be most helpful to you?  
  • What topics should we revisit, or go into more detail?
  • What questions do you have? 

This is a great opportunity for networking with other parish staff from around the diocese!  Please let us know your topic requests and questions by emailing Bernadette Adams at badams@diojeffcity.org. RSVP’s will be requested separately very soon. 


Attention Parishes — Advertising Rate Increase

In recent years, The Catholic Missourian has felt the impact of rising production and printing costs, as well as the continued increase in postage rates. For some time, we’ve striven to absorb these excess expenditures without passing them along to those who support us.

In researching other newspaper advertising rates from similar dioceses in the Midwest, and after careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to increase our advertising rates in two stages — one increase in July 2024 and the other in January 2025. This is the first time we have updated our newspaper advertising rates in more than a decade. Please be assured that we have made every effort to make this a smooth transition.

The new advertising pricing structure for diocesan entities, including parishes and schools, will be as follows:

July 2024
Black/white (per column inch): $8
Color (per column inch): $10

January 2025
Black/white (per column inch): $10
Color (per column inch): $12

Women’s Conference of Healing and Forgiveness

We all have something in our lives that is broken — that needs to be mended, fixed or healed. When we turn to Jesus and align our hearts and minds with Him and trust in His mercy, He comes to us and wraps His arms lovingly around us. He gently reminds us that “together, we can fix this!” Christ can heal broken relationships with God, broken relationships with others and broken parts of ourselves. Come join us to experience Jesus’ Divine Mercy through His Healing and Forgiveness which is freely offered to all. The 3-day Women’s Conference of Healing and Forgiveness, entitled “Women of Hope,” will be held September 5-7, 2024 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Lenexa, Kansas.
