Our Mission

On Saturday, November 4, 2017, Cure’ of Ars will proudly host its eigth annual Cure’ 5k Run. The event will raise funds for Cure’ of Ars Parish and generate excitement and energy as participants come together to celebrate fitness and support a worthy cause.

For over 50 years, Cure’ of Ars Parish has strived to work as a faith community to achieve its mission of continuing the work of Jesus. The parish provides many important ministries to our community and beyond and supports Cure’ of Ars School. Some examples of these efforts include support for St. Mary’s Food Kitchen, Holy Name School in Kansas City, Kansas, and ministries in Guatemala and Pakistan. Cure’ of Ars School currently enrolls over seven hundred students in preschool through eighth grade, and the parish provides religious education to an additional two hundred students. Our school’s mission is to guide, encourage and challenge every child to become a lifelong contributor to society with heart, mind and soul.

Our event will include a timed 5k run, 1 mile run and post-run breakfast. We can’t wait to see you participate as a runner or walker at this fun community event after all, it’s. . . Fitness for the Soul!
