The Peace & Social Justice Committee of Holy Savior Catholic Church is selling commemorative Christmas ornaments featuring a detailed image of the new Holy Savior Catholic Church. Cost of the ornaments are $10 each and are available or purchase after each Mass through Sunday, November 25. Payment must be made at the time of order. The sale is a fundraising event for the parish's social justice programs.

Beginning November 4, Holy Savior will change its Sunday afternoon Mass time from 5 p.m. to 4 p.m. The move is being made on that day to coordinate with the end of Daylight Savings Time. The parking lot at the church's temporary location, Holy Savior at St. Peter Claver, 1209 N. Indiana, lacks sufficient lighting. Improvements to the lot's lighting aren't warranted, as this is a temporary church location. Construction of the new church and school are scheduled to be complete in the Fall of 2019.

Holy Savior Catholic Church and Academy celebrated its fifth annual Red & Black Banquet on Saturday, October 13 at the Wichita Marriott. More than 320 people attended the event. The theme for this year's banquet was "Celebrating 70 Years; Celebrating a New Beginning." Holy Savior was established in 1948 and Holy Savior recently started construction of its new church and school buildings. Construction is scheduled to be complete in the Fall of 2019.

Holy Savior thanks all who attended and who helped make this year's banquet a success!

With the construction project beginning for the new Holy Savior Catholic Church and Academy, church Masses are being held at the historic St. Peter Claver Complex, 1209 N. Indiana. The Mass times will remain the same: Monday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 a.m.; Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 6 p.m.; and Sunday at 8 a.m., 11 a.m., and 5 p.m.

Church offices have also relocated to St. Peter Claver during the construction time. Construction is scheduled to be complete by the Fall of 2019. The phone number to the church office will remain the same, 316-682-8712.

All mail can be sent to either the former Chautauqua address or to what will be the new church address: 3000 E. 13th St. North, Wichita, KS 67214.  Mail is being forwarded to a Post Office box.
