Sister Parish

Our sister parish project is with All Saints Parish in KC,KS.  Our Mission:  To share our faith, service and fellowship through the diversity of our culture. Located at 8th and Vermont Streets in Kansas City, Kansas, All Saints Parish has quite an interesting story to share from it’s one hundred and twenty-year-old history.    The parish, originally named St. Joseph, was founded by immigrant families, primarily of Polish descent, who built their homes and lives around the worship, social, and educational opportunities within their church.                 Over the years, this hard working and dedicated community was able to add a parish rectory, thriving grade school, gathering hall for social activities, and even a bowling alley to their parish complex.       Time, economic, and cultural changes altered the makeup and future of the St. Joseph community and its surrounding ethnic parishes.  Eventually St. Benedict, St. Thomas, and St. Cyril & Methodius had to close their doors, and their parishioners were then welcomed into the surviving St. Joseph parish. This combined community was then renamed “All Saints Parish”.   A statement from the church centennial celebration book is a testimony to the enduring faith and purpose of our sister parish.  “Although the makeup of the community has changed over the years, the goals of the parish are timeless:  that is to live according to the laws of God, and in doing so, gain everlasting happiness.  Despite the fact that members may be old or young, natural born or immigrant, Polish or Hispanic, rich or poor, these goals are superior to all obstacles that may occasionally block our path.” Ascension parish is humbled and honored to pair with such an inspiring sister parish, and we look forward to sharing our faith, service and fellowship through the diversity of our culturesClick here for All Saints web site

 We are planning a “tamale dinner” and sale on April 21st from 5:30-7:30 pm.  The tamales will be made fresh by the women from All Saints Parish.   You can attend dinner that night in the Parish Hall.  Adult dinners are  $8 and kids $5.  If you decide not to pre-order and not to go to dinner, you can pick up “take out tamales” while they last for $20/dozen from 5:30-7:30 that evening.   Proceeds will go to the All Saints Youth group and church maintenance.  To sign up to help put on the dinner (set up, serving and clean up.) please click here Adults and teens encouraged to volunteer!
