Adoration Chapel

As most of you know, the majority of the structure of St. Rose Hospital is being demolished, including the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel.  At the behest of Bishop John, plans were drawn up to re-construct the cry room/usher's room, at the worship site at St. Patrick, for the Adoration Chapel.


As of April 1, the Adoration Chapel at St. Rose Hospital was closed.


The Adoration Chapel at it's new location is now complete and dedication, by Bishop John, occurred today, Sunday, April 19 at 11:30 am.


Please consider spending an hour a week in prayer at the chapel. Prayer is the life blood of the Christian and time spent in contemplation and adoration before the Blessed Sacrament is always fruitful. If you are open to making that commitment, please contact Mary Lou Weiser at 620-792-4250 or Arlene Karlin at 620-793-9429.


Below are pictures of construction of the new chapel from beginning to present.

Dante Deo College Program

On May 6, 2014, Dante Deo was blessed to have Most Reverend Bishop John B. Brungardt as their final speaker of the year. Dante Deo - Latin for "By the Gift of God" is a new Catholic college ministry program that was implemented at Barton Community College in the Fall of 2013. Dante Deo focuses on spiritual development and fellowship among BCC students. Each week, the group hosts a speaker that focuses on relevant issues such as faith, vocations, relationships, service, humility, community, or the group hosts a social event. Bishop Brungardt talked to the group about numerous topics discussed in Pope Francis' Papal Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium. His main points were community, fraternity, hospitality, and the importance of each in living out the Gospel message.

Dante Deo's purpose is to increase fellowship, maintain and increase students' interest in both Catholic and Christian beliefs, develop student leaders with high integrity, values and morals, and to increase students' volunteer activity in our local community. Students do not have to be Catholic to participate in the student organization. All are welcome to join the group as they discuss topics that matter and make friends, not just for college - but for life. The Bishop shared with them his joy that the group was at Barton Community College for students to grow in these areas and encouraged them to continue growing in their faith as they continue their education.
