Annual Appeal Honor or Memory 

Dear Friends of Cristo Rey,
In 2006, the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth made a bold move. At the very moment when shutters were appearing on urban Catholic schools across the country, the sisters said, “Yes,” to sponsoring a private, Catholic college prep high school exclusively for students with economic need. From the seeds of that decision, the educational landscape changed dramatically.

Today, others have come to realize that Cristo Rey Kansas City – a jewel in our city, a jewel for under-served families in our community – is another in a series of deliberate actions of the sisters to be a bridge that connects people with life-giving hope.

Your investment in the students of Cristo Rey will open the doors and allow them to look forward to the good that is yet to be. With your help, they become college ready and prepared to join the 21st Century workforce as contributing members of society. Whether you make a gift to sponsor a student or to our annual fund, you allow students to receive the best preparation for college and to seize educational and extracurricular opportunities as they arise.

Our vision is bold but clear:  enable young people to have a successful, financially sustainable life while making meaningful contributions to our community. Please join us!

Ever forward,
Rebecca Summers

Director of Institutional Advancement
