Permanent Community FAQ

What does it mean to be a permanent community member?

The St. Lawrence Center serves a permanent community consisting of KU faculty, staff, alumni, and friends in the Lawrence area who choose to share in the mission of St. Lawrence. There are 120 families in this permanent community, and they are the foundation of St. Lawrence. They provide consultation and support; serve as role models; and develop, form, and mentor the Catholic students of the University. They are true stewards through the devotion of their time, talent and treasure for the benefit of the Catholic Church. In addition, they are beneficiaries of services that St. Lawrence provides, such as sacramental life, pastoral care and spiritual formation.

How do I register to be a permanent community member? 

Our registration drive mirrors that of the parish; we will fully re-register all permanent community members in November! However, our programming begins in August, and we want to stay in touch with you, so please give us your contact information
