Holy Savior hosts event in celebration of African culture

Two priests from the Catholic Diocese of Dodge City who are natives of Ghana visited Holy Savior on Feb. 24 to celebrate Mass with Fr. Jim Billinger and take part in a program that focused on African culture.

Fr. John Forkuoh and Fr. Matthew Kumi came to Holy Savior at the invitation of Fr. Billinger and Dr. Delia Shropshire, principal of Holy Savior Catholic Academy.  Dr. Shropshire met Fr. Forkuoh and Fr. Matthew when she was on a principal’s retreat at the Spiritual Life Center.

Following Mass, the priests, Holy Savior Catholic Academy students, teachers, and others participated in a program that celebrated African culture.  School families from Africa dressed in native attire and brought in native dishes to share.  Seventh-grade student Faith Andrews performed a traditional African dance.  And students were invited to ask the visiting priests questions about vocations and African culture.


Piatt St. crash of 1965 focus of event at Holy Savior

Holy Savior Catholic Church hosted an event to discuss and memorialize the 1965 plane crash at 20th Street and Piatt that killed 30 people.

The event on Feb. 8 included a panel discussion, a memorial service, and a PowerPoint presentation from D.W. Carter, author of “Mayday Over Wichita: The Worst Military Aviation Disaster in Kansas History,” a book with extensive details about the crash.

On Jan. 16, 1965, a KC-135 tanker carrying fuel crashed into the residential area near 20th and Piatt, killing 23 residents and the seven crew members.

The event was sponsored by the African American Catholic Council of Wichita, Holy Savior, and the Kansas African American Museum.  It was held in recognition of Black History Month.

Youths participate in many activities in Totus Tuus program

More than 35 youths participated in the Totus Tuus program June 2-7 at Holy Savior Catholic Church.

Totus Tuus (Totally Yours) is a Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness and Eucharistic worship.  Throughout the week, youths participated in a variety of activities in class and worship.  The youths also had the opportunity to participate in other activities including swimming at Genesis Health Club and sharing a potluck meal, provided by members of the parish.  Youths were divided into two groups, one for those in grades first through sixth and the other for youths in grades seventh through 12th.

The Totus Tuus team members who led the program this year at Holy Savior were (listed with their home parish): Aaron Nguyen (St. Thomas Aquinas, Wichita); Kyle Martens (St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Wichita); Claire O’Gorman (Church of the Ascension, Overland Park); and Rachel Shearrer (St. Mary, Derby). 

Workshop provides HSCA students lessons on the impact of bullying

Jim Williams, a leading speaker about the impact of bullying and other issues, brought his message to Holy Savior Catholic Academy students on Nov. 7.

Williams, of Nashville, Tenn., provides his workshop to schools nationwide, and this year’s visit marked the third time he has spoken to students at Holy Savior and other schools in the Catholic Diocese of Wichita.

Williams provided two workshops, one geared for students in the fourth through sixth grades, and the other for students in the seventh and eighth grades.

His message to students included how bullying can harm students and why it’s important for young people to stand up for victims of bullying and other harmful actions.

“Are you ready to accept each other for who God created you to be?” Williams asked students.

Williams also shared his personal story of the impact of bullying on his life and he shared the tragedy he endured when his 19-year-old son, Curt, was killed in 1995 by a drunk driver.

During the workshop at Holy Savior, Williams gave students the opportunity to reflect on times when they may have done harmful things to fellow students and challenged them to talk about those actions with those they hurt.

“I believe that the approach Mr. Williams uses to reach students is effective because he connects with them and invites them to look deeper into their humanity,” Holy Savior Principal Dr. Delia Shropshire said.  “We are grateful to Principal Dan Dester of Blessed Sacrament Catholic School for sponsoring this presentation.”
