Welcome to St. John Paul II Catholic Parish

Parish Vision

Saint John Paul II Catholic Church is called to open doors to Jesus Christ through authentic witness in the home, joyful hope in worship, and fruitful service to our neighbors, offering the opportunity not to have more but to be more.

St. John Paul II Parish consecrated our parish and our Open Wide the Doors to Christ capital campaign to Our Blessed Mother Mary on June 30, 2019.  Marian consecration is a complete entrusting of ourselves to her maternal care for the purpose of sharing now and forever in the life of Jesus Christ.  

Archdiocesan Capital Campaign Participation

The first capital campaign for St. John Paul II Parish is a joint campaign with the One Faith, One Family, One Future in Christ Campaign of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. 

Generous accommodations were made to acknowledge the unique circumstances of our parish, including a reduced parish target.  St. John Paul II parishioners will be supporting and participating in the One Faith, One Family, One Future in Christ Campaign by supporting the first capital campaign at St. John Paul II Parish.

Open Wide the Doors to Christ Capital Campaign Chairs - Dan and Helen Biller

Father Andrew asked us to serve as campaign chairs in the Spring of 2019 and we gave our “yes” to serve our brand new church in Olathe, Kansas. 

“Trusting in Jesus, we are now re- launching the campaign with a few changes in our Open Wide the Doors to Christ capital campaign.  Our need for our own facility has been magnified during this pandemic.  Currently, we are renting space in two different churches and staff continues to office out of the parish rectory.  Now is the time! 

We know all things are possible and our patron saint, Saint John Paul II told us “Be Not Afraid”.  With God’s help together we can accomplish what we could never do alone.  Together we will Be More!

Open Wide the Doors to Christ Campaign Prayer

The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,

implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. 

Inspired by this confidence,

I fly unto thee,

O Virgin of virgins, my mother;

to thee do I come,

before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. 

O Mother of the Word Incarnate,

despise not my petitions,

but in thy mercy hear and answer me. 

Amen.

Current Parish Needs

The most pressing need for the parish is a facility to offer Sunday Mass and other liturgies.  While renting space has been a necessary part of the parish’s operations at this point, having a space owned and operated by the parish is a crucial need.  There are natural limitations that come with renting space that a parish owned and operated facility would avoid.  Having buildings on the parish’s land will also attract new parishioners and be a sign of hope and vibrancy in the growing local community.
