Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas


Living the Works of Mercy

As a ministry of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, we work closely with churches in our community to respond to the Gospel.

Like the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:29-37), we vividly see the call to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. Our Community Engagement Team is dedicated to bringing poverty awareness, education and hands-on learning experiences rooted in the Gospel and the Works of Mercy to those in our 21 county service area.

Praying for the Living and Dead


At Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas, we embrace the broadest vision of neighbors helping neighbors; our combined efforts allow us to work toward the common good and well-being of all, especially the poor and vulnerable in our communities. We believe in living out our mission with help, hope and hospitality.

Through our partnership with churches, we are dedicated to caring for our neighbors in need, advocating for justice and providing opportunities to grow in love of God and neighbor.

If your church, ministry or small group (e.g. youth group, bible study, etc.) is interested in joining us in our mission contact us below!

Above: Churches throughout our service area support food drives for Catholic Charities. Volunteers help to gather donations in the Catholic Charities truck.
