Cristo Rey School

To all COHO Members and interested community members,

As you may know the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth are starting a Cristo Rey School in Kansas City this fall. They are trying to reach as many Latino 8th grade students as they can. The Sisters have given out about 120 packets, but know there are many Latino students that have not been reached. The school is open to any student in economic need. If they qualify for free or reduced lunch at school (about 185% of poverty) they will qualify for the Cristo Rey school.

This is where they need your help. If you have a middle school youth group, or a parent group in your organization Sr. Vickie and her associates would love to meet with them to tell them about Cristo Rey Kansas City. If you would be willing to help Sr. Vickie to do this, please call her at 816 457 6044 or email her at or Also, if you know of individual students or have the name of a contact with another organization or school, they would appreciate receiving that as well.

Sister Eileen Haynes or Sister Vickie Perkins would be happy to talk to you about this. They really want to reach the kids who would benefit from the Cristo Rey school.

Thank you for your help in this area. We know that each of the COHO organizations contact many of the families they are hoping to engage and we appreciate your assistance in this endeavor.
