    May is dedicated to Mary! "Our heart rejoices at the faith and love which will be paid to the Queen of Heaven. This is the month which we offer the Virgin Mother more fervent and loving acts of homage and veneration and in which a greater abundance of God's merciful gifts comes down to us from our Mother's throne."
  • The Year of Father Kapaun
    The Year of Father Kapaun Father Kapaun lived his life in service to others. He was a man of joy, and you could see that joy in his actions. That joy was the love that he received from God. He felt that joy when he gave that love to others and when he was of service to others.

    With joy, we celebrate "The Year of Fr. Kapaun."

The Catholic Diocese of Wichita was erected in 1887 from the Diocese of Leavenworth. The document establishing the Wichita diocese was issued by Pope Leo XIII. At that time there were 16 priests in charge of churches, and 23 churches attended as missions and nine parochial schools.

Excellence in our Catholic Schools

As the second largest school system in Sedgwick County and the ninth largest in Kansas, the 39 Catholic schools of the Diocese of Wichita serve nearly 11,000 students in both urban and rural areas. What distinguishes Catholic schools is our mission to form disciples of Jesus Christ.
