KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Students, parents, teachers and parishioners past and present will get a chance to say goodbye to Christ the King School here.

There will be a farewell Mass followed by a sloppy Joes feast at 4 p.m. on May 25 at the church.

On March 6, it was announced that Christ the King School would close at the end of the academic year.

The school has offered Catholic education in the archdiocese for 80 years but with dwindling enrollment and the financial burden to the parish, the decision was made to make this school year Christ the King’s last.

The school has 197 students in grades from prekindergarten to eighth grade, and  a faculty and staff of 26.

For those who would like to attend the sloppy Joes feast, register online at: ctkkcks.org or call (913) 287-8823.
