beloved bishop johnston, six priests and a deacon 

At the Mass last year we were extremely blessed with the clergy that offered up City on a Hill in the Holy Mass. City on a Hill was consecrated to Jesus through the hands of His Blessed Mother. We also announced 4 new patrons: Saint John Paul the Great, Saint Augustine, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, and Servant of God Chiara Corbella Petrillo. This year, Mass will be held at Our Lady of Sorrows Parish in the heart of KC.


happy reunion

Last year City on a Hill celebrated our 10th Anniversary! Alumni walked, drove and flew in to Kansas City to celebrate and support us at City Lights 2017. We are so blessed for a network of so many amazing friends! Come to City Lights for a good cause and a great time.


we got that swing

With a live jazz band and dance floor, there is no stopping us from swing dancing. The floor was covered last year with tapping shoes and clapping hands. That is exactly why this year we will be dancing at The Vox Theater with a dance floor that is even larger! No matter if you are all about swing or just like to groove to the rhythm of the beat, the floor will be yours.
