The 2022 Sisters Appreciation Event – May 7th / Saturday 4:00pm Mass at Visitation Catholic Church at 5141 Main Street KCMO with Dinner being delivered to Sisters.
Begun in 2006 and held traditionally on the first weekend of May, this event celebrates the major contributions of consecrated religious women in the region. All Orders of nuns are invited to send participants to come to St. Thomas More Parish where a walk-run starts for the nuns, Serra members, and their families in mid-morning. After everyone catches their breath, a Mass is held to celebrate the special contribution of women religious in both the KC-St. J. and KCK Dioceses. The Serrans then serve an honorary lunch to all attendees. The half-day concludes with gifts to each of the sister/participants and a raffle where prizes like Royals’ baseball tickets, car washes, theatre passes, and symphony tickets excite the nuns with ooh’s and aah’s.
