St. Elizabeth Catholic Church is a vibrant, Christ-centered community whose primary purpose is to celebrate the sacred liturgy and the Sacraments. Empowered by the Sacraments, we are called to personal holiness, to spread the word of God, and to actions of generosity and compassion toward all of God’s people. We aspire, through prayer and action, to further God’s kingdom on earth.

The parish was established on August 1, 1917. The original church was dedicated 22 April 1935. The current church at 75th and Main streets in Kansas City (Architects: Shaughnesy, Bower, and Grimaldi) was dedicated on September 21, 1961.The stained glass windows for the current church were made by Hopcroft  Stained Glass Studio of Kansas City . Here are just a few:
