The Shepherd's Voice
Archbishop Joseph Naumann teaches the Catholic Faith by interviewing Catholics who live it.

Archbishop Nauman interviews Fr. Ric Halvorson and Lesle Knop about the Archdiocese's annual appeal.

The Mission of the Archbishop’s Call to Share

The universal church in its mission has responded to the mandate of Christ to “Go out and teach all nations.” The Archbishop’s Call to Share supports our response to this mission on the local level, by providing for the ministries that work to fulfill this mandate. Together we respond as disciples to the words and example of Christ.

In fiscal year 2012/2013 at least $4,400,000.00 will be needed to fund invaluable archdiocesan programs. Your gift will be distributed to benefit ministries and organizations within the Catholic church of Northeast Kansas. The funded areas fall into four categories: Pastoral Needs, Education, Charity, and Clergy.


The Sacrament of Reconciliation

Archbishop Naumann and Father Harry Schneider discuss the great gift of confession and the Archdiocesan initiative to promote the sacrament during Lent. 

Listen as the Archbishop and an experienced pastor share a priest's perspective on the sacrament of reconciliation and give some practical advise on how to get the most out of confession.  You'll feel like the Archbishop is your own personal spiritual advisor.

During Lent 2012, confessions will be heard in the Kansas parishes of the Archdiocese  on Wednesdays from 6-7.
