Holy Savior shares its "HOPE for a Vibrant Future" at banquet

More than 280 people attended the 2014 Red & Black Banquet, held Oct. 18, in support of Holy Savior Catholic Church and Academy and its “HOPE for a Vibrant Future.”

The banquet, held at Corporate Caterers of Wichita, featured a presentation by Matt Hamm and Shannon Bohm of Schaefer Johnson Cox Frey Architecture.  The presentation included sketches of the design of a possible new Holy Savior campus.  The sketches are the initial designs of what Holy Savior hopes it can have at its existing site at 13th Street and Erie.

Prior to the presentation, a video about Holy Savior and its building needs was shown.  The video was shot and produced by Enrique Ramirez. During the event, attendees had the opportunity to provide feedback about the presentation on comment cards.

The event also included: songs by the Holy Savior Youth Choir (directed by Mary Pearson); a solo by Ariana Breckenridge; a song from the Holy Savior Mass Choir (with Ed Vinson as lead vocalist); and a live auction led by Bud Palmer. Fr. Jim Billinger, pastor of Holy Savior Parish, and Dr. Delia Shropshire, principal of Holy Savior Catholic Academy, addressed the audience during the event. Holy Savior Music Director Justin Hall provided the accompaniment for the evening. And Anne Corriston served as the emcee.

Holy Savior wishes to thank all those who helped make the banquet a success either by attendance, donations, prayers, and volunteerism.

Holy Savior celebrates canonization of first Native American saint

Holy Savior Catholic Church celebrated the canonization of the first Native American saint, St. Kateri Tekakwitha during its 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. Masses on Sunday, Nov. 18.

Known as “Lily of the Mohawks” of the Mohawk/Algonquin tribes, St. Kateri Tekakwitha was canonized at St Peter’s Square in the Vatican City on October 21, 2012 by Pope Benedict XVI.  Pope Benedict stated during the canonization: “May her example help us to live where we are, loving Jesus without denying who we are. St. Kateri, protectress of Canada and the first American Indian saint, we entrust you to the renewal of the faith in the first nations and in all of North America.”

The Masses at Holy Savior included special detail to honor St. Kateri Tekakwitha, including the positioning of eagle feathers on the processional cross and an image of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, while also recognizing the diverse cultures of the parish.


Holy Savior hosts Christmas Eve Mass broadcast on television

For the second consecutive year, Holy Savior Catholic Church hosted the Christmas Eve Mass that was broadcast on KWCH-TV, Channel 12.  Bishop Michael Jackels was the main celebrant.

The Mass is usually broadcast live from the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, but was moved again this year to Holy Savior due to the renovation work at the Cathedral.

The sponsors for this year’s broadcast were the Kruse Corp.; Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers; Simpson & Associates; and Applebee’s.

The demolition was done by Cornejo & Sons.  Work began Jan. 23, 2013, and was completed by Feb. 1, 2013.
