Serra Club Happenings

Arriving from Brazil to the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas on January 22, 2012, the Sisters of the Fraternity of the Poor of Jesus Christ, also known as the Poor of Jesus Christ, spend their lives committed to helping the poorest of the poor, the homeless, and those who have nowhere else to go. The Sisters celebrated their 12th anniversary on Monday, January 22, with a Mass of Thanksgiving and a community gather that followed. Check out some details and photos!
The annual JOCO Serra Club's "Great American Chili Cook-Off" (the name gets embellished every year . . .) was once again a hit with participants and meeting attendees. If you like chili, this is your go-to spot in January!
