Other Opportunities for Involvement

-Associates Meeting is the 4th Saturday of the month from 10am. until Noon. We sometimes have a guest speaker, take a field trip or have a spiritual program. Everyone is welcome to attend; do bring a friend. We can always use ideas for this meeting.

The Associates are a community of about 45 people who commit themselves for one year to pray for the mission of Sanctuary of Hope and to donate time, talent, or financial support. They chair several committees and, in general, are the support systems that help run Sanctuary of Hope. We have a special ceremony during the Associates' meetings to commission new Associates and to re-commission existing Associates. For more information on becoming an Associate please email FrDennis@SanctuaryOfHope.org   or call the Sanctuary of Hope office at
(913)321-HOPE (321-4673).

-Work Day is the 2nd Saturday of the month from 8am. until 1pm. with lunch served. We have both indoor and outdoor projects, large and small. Join us to help with the ongoing work and meet our other volunteers.

-Pastoral Council Meeting is the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7-8:30pm. Board of Trustees, Staff Members and Committee Heads make reports of activities at Sanctuary of Hope. There are no meetings in July or August. Anyone may attend.

General Schedule

We are closed on Mondays for community and personal time for the Live-ins, there is, however, a receptionist on duty during the morning hours of 8-12am to answer the phones.

We are open year round both private and group retreats.

When visiting Sanctuary of Hope, please use the front door. All other doors are locked except when there is Mass or the Prayer or Associate Groups, Work Day and other special occasions.

You may come at any time to do volunteer work. Please call first, however, to see when you are needed.

Please note our bulletin board in the hallway. Under the bulletin board is a table on which lies the Volunteer Sign-In Clip Board. Any time you do volunteer work, please sign your name, hours and date. We need this to obtain grant monies; it is also nice to see, through the years, how much donated work has been done to make Sanctuary of Hope a Retreat and Prayer Center.

We are situated on 32 acres of lush greenery with walking trails in wooded areas. Benches are available on the trails for quiet time and contemplation.

As a Retreat Center, we have 23 guestrooms with 41 spaces available for overnight stays. Most of the rooms are double occupancy.  In addition there is a four bedroom apartment available on 2nd floor which has a living area, kitchen and bathroom.

We have a quarterly Newsletter called 'Words of Hope" that we send to over 2,300 people, including people in other countries.

To inquire about any event or function, please call Sanctuary of Hope at (913)-321-4673 (321 -HOPE) between the hours of 8am. to 4pm. on Tuesday through Friday or leave a message on the answering machine.
