Who We Are

St Robert Bellarmine is a Roman Catholic Parish located in the suburbs of Kansas City Missouri. We are 20 miles east of downtown Kansas City and 4 miles south of I-70 in the southern part of Blue Springs Missouri. Blue Springs is a city of a little over 50,000 people. There is a welcoming presence here in our faith community and we would love for you to experience worshipping with us at one of our weekend Masses. We have three Masses each weekend, a children’s liturgy during the 9 and 11 am Masses, a Parish School of Religion for preschool through 5th grade, Middle School of Religion 5 for 6th through 8th grades, Confirmation prep for our high school students, adult education offerings throughout the year, a Music Ministry program, a Social Justice Ministry, Women’s and Men’s Ministry programs, Knights of Columbus and a food pantry that serves 80 families a month.

The parish was established in 1983 and met for two years at other sites until the church and parish hall were built. When we were established we took on as our mission the story of last judgment from the Gospel of Matthew chapter 25. Jesus said; “When you saw me thirsty, you gave me something to drink, when I was hungry you gave me something to eat. When I was sick or in prison you came and visited me, when I was a stranger, you welcomed me, when I was naked you clothed me.” And the people asked “when did we see you thirsty, hungry, naked sick or in prison or a stranger and ministered to your needs?” Jesus replied; “Whatever you did for the least of people, that you have done for me” We felt so strongly about this mission, that we had parts of the gospel engraved on our doors into the church and our stained glass window in the church is a visual of this Gospel passage.

Please come and worship with us and experience our faith in action. We hope you will find a church home with us and help us continue our outreach to our parish family and the communities we are a part of.
