Description: Respect Life Challenge: A Call to Action · Saturdays in October· 10-11:30 a.m.· In person and livestreamed “Therefore, with St. John Paul II, I reaffirm with renewed conviction the appeal he addressed to everyone 25 years ago: ‘Respect, defend, love and serve life, every life, every human life! Only on this path will you find justice, development, freedom, peace and happiness!’ ” — Pope Francis speaking in March, marking the 25th anniversary of Evangelium Vitae (“The Gospel of Life”), St. John Paul’s encyclical on the dignity and sacredness of all human life. The Catholic church has set aside October as “Respect Life Month” for many years. Each year we are asked to raise our awareness to another level of what it means to respect the “incomparable and inviolable worth of every human life” (Evangelium Vitae, Paragraph 96) On the Saturdays in October, Precious Blood Renewal Center will host a series of panel discussions looking at five distinct aspects of human life. Fr. Ron Will, CPPS, will lead the panels at 10-11:30 a.m. Central Time. You can join us in-person or via Zoom.  Oct 2 — Elder Abuse AwarenessWe will meet individuals who have experienced abuse as the elderly and we will learn how to look for warning signs in our own homes and local care facilities. Guest speakers: Nanna Cross and Julie Kuzera from Jane Adams Senior Caucus. Oct 9 —Losing a Child to HomicideWe will meet mothers who have lost children to gun violence or incarceration coming together to talk, support and heal. Guest speaker: Sr. Donna Liette, C.PP.S. and members of the Mothers Circle at Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation in Chicago. Oct 16 — Abolishing the Death PenaltyWe will meet individuals who are working toward alternatives to the death penalty and will learn why they believe so strongly that all life must be treated with respect. Guest speakers: Jean Swymeler, Connie Swymeler, and Margaret D’Huyvetter from Missourians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty. Oct 23 — Preventing Gun ViolenceGun violence is a growing concern in our country. We will meet two priests who addressed that situation in their parish ministry. We will learn what they did and why. Guest speakers: Fathers Joesph Uecker, C.PP.S., and Mike Goode C.PP.S. Oct. 30 — Grieving Miscarriage or StillbornWe will meet mothers who have lost a child through a miscarriage or a stillbirth. They will tell us about the grieving process and how to find ongoing support. Guest Speakers: Kara Palladino, Colleen Sullivan, and Deacon Gerard-Marie Anthony from A Mom’s Peace, in Virginia. These are among the many examples of life calling for greater respect. We are challenged not only to listen but also to respond. Our goal is not to have just a philosophical discussion but to move to some practical, action steps, so that participants will go away saying “I can do that.” Register or get  more information: · Email: info@pbrenewalcenter.org· Phone: 816-415-3745· Online: pbrenewalcenter.org/events By virtue of our sharing in Christ's royal mission, our support and promotion of human life must be accomplished through the service of charity, which finds expression in personal witness, various forms of volunteer work, social activity and political commitment. — Evangelium Vitae, Paragraph 87 Submitted by: Dennis Coday Precious Blood Renewal Center

Join us at Buffalo Meadows Park on October 2nd for an outdoor screening of The Biggest Little Farm. This heartwarming documentary follows a young couple as they embark on a great adventure to live out their dreams by cultivating a sustainable farm on 200 acres outside of Los Angeles. The Biggest Little Farm is a beautiful story the whole family will love! About The Film The Biggest Little Farm chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester, as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature. Through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature's conflicts, the Chester’s unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination. Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, The Biggest Little Farm provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet. Watch the trailer below! We can’t wait to share John and Molly’s incredible story with you! Before the film, you will have the opportunity to connect with local farmers and organizations specializing in community building, food security, and environmental restoration. Event Details: - This is a FREE outdoor event that is open to all ages. - Event Location: Buffalo Meadows Park in Lenexa, KS. Look for the 16 ft inflatable projector screen- you can't miss it!! - The event begins at 6:30 pm, the screening will begin at sundown (about 7:00 pm). - This event is BYOP- Bring Your Own Picnic! - Compost Collective KC will provide on-site composting buckets to transform your food scraps into nutrient-dense compost that will help grow nutritious food for you and your community. - Please refrain from bringing alcoholic beverages, as they are prohibited on public property per Lenexa City  - Blankets, lawn chairs, pouch couches and hammocks are all encouraged. Premier Integrative Health, Five Mile Farms, Compost Collective, After the Harvest and Brookside Farmer’s Market are all awesome organizations in KC that are extremely passionate about reducing food waste, supporting their community, protecting the environment, and finding new solutions for old problems… or rather, old solutions for new problems. Learn more about each of these organizations below! Our goal is to help Kansas Citians connect with local regenerative agriculture farms. These farmers are on a mission to provide high-quality produce and animal products, preserve our native prairies and replenish the soil of our planet. Premier Integrative Health Premier Integrative Health is a unique medical practice that uses Integrative and Functional medicine to get to the root cause of our patient's concerns. We focus on the prevention and reversal of disease as opposed to managing symptoms. Our team of doctors, health coaches and dietitians address all aspects of health including nutrition, movement and emotional wellbeing. We create a partnership with our patients to help them achieve their health goals and live the best life they can. Five Mile Farms Five Mile Farms is a local farm in La Cygne, KS that practices regenerative agriculture. Regenerative Agriculture not only produces extremely high-quality meats but is also the prescription to replenish our soil and save our planet. Their farming practices work with the carbon cycles of nature to rebuild the ecosystems that ultimately support their family and broader communities. Five Mile Farms is driven to rebuild the health of Kansas soil and leave it in better shape for future generations. Compost Collective KC This awesome organization is composed of a small group of caring citizens who want to make composting easy for you and keep food out of landfills. They’ve created a curbside compost pick-up service in the KC area to help reduce food waste & replenish the soils of our community. They are in partnership with Missouri Organic and local farms; after picking up food scraps from your home, they deliver it to these local farms where it is transformed into nutrient-dense compost that will be used to grow MORE nutritious food… and the cycle begins again! After The Harvest This incredible organization works to reduce waste by rescuing produce (tossed because of minor imperfections) and distributing it to those who need it most. This way it ends up on hungry families’ tables, instead of in a landfill or rotting in the field. Thanks to thousands of volunteers, growers and financial donors, After the Harvest, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, brings apples, berries, squash, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, potatoes, peaches and many other kinds of healthy fruits and vegetables, completely free of charge, to agencies feeding our hungry neighbors in the KC community. Brookside Farmers’ Market The Brookside Farmers’ Market isn’t just any farmers’ market, it is a community. The market serves as a bridge between Kansas Citians and their local food source. All of BFM’s vendors are the actual farmers and makers. You will find no middle man at this market! Those who grow, raise or make every product are the ones who sell it to you directly. All products found at this market are sourced within 100 miles of Kansas City. Most importantly, the Brookside Farmers’ Market vendors are committed to practices that steward our dirt, water, and natural resources. Brookside Farmers’ Market takes place every Saturday morning at HJ's Youth and Community Center from 8:00 am- 1:00 pm. What is Regenerative Agriculture? Regenerative Agriculture describes farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity –- resulting in a delicious and ultra nutritious protein source! Why should I choose to support local farms that practice regenerative agriculture? Not only do modern industrial farming practices limit the nutritional value of our food, but they also diminish the microbial diversity, available nutrients, and the quantity of the soil itself. However, there is hope! A number of farming practices that sustain our bodies, the earth, and other creatures that inhabit it are being studied and undertaken all over the world. Regenerative Agriculture can regenerate the health of the soil and the foods that grow within and upon it. Holistic land management practices leverage the natural power of the sun, plants, microorganisms, and large herbivores to create a sustainable, resilient cycle that is good for the planet and the human population. Opting for locally raised & produced food ensures that it stays packed with its intended and initial nutrients (and flavor!). Buying local helps strengthen communities because when you buy directly from the farmer, you are building a relationship while also supporting local farmers who provide for you as much as they provide for their own families.

Description: With over 70 million albums sold, Stone Temple Pilots roared on to the scene in 1992 with their raucous debut, Core. A breakout success, the album peaked #3 on the Billboard 200 chart, and dominated radio waves with hits like "Sex Type Thing," "Wicked Garden," and the Grammy-Award winning smash single, "Plush." STP quickly distinguished themselves as a band beholden to no trend. Boasting the inimitable riffs of guitarist Dean DeLeo, the propulsive rhythm section of bassist Robert DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz, and the charismatic baritone of frontman Scott Weiland, STP ruled airways, video playlists and charts alike over their legendary career. The band released their latest studio album, Perdida in 2020 with new lead singer, Jeff Gutt. Paste magazine described Perdida as the most sonically rich experience that Stone Temple Pilots have offered fans to date. www.stonetemplepilots.com Submitted by: Ryan The Cotillion

Description: 6 pm doors 7 pm show BIG DOPES : Colorado via St. Louis indie-crooners. LONNIE FISHER & THE FUNERAL : Psychedelic indie-rock from LFK record release party FRITZ HUTCHISON : KC's favorite son. More about Big Dopes: "Big Dopes’ 2019 album Crimes Against Gratitude was simply one of the most meaningful records out of the realm of indie rock and power pop that year. With tastefully fuzzy melodies the band’s poignant and touchingly poetic lyrics stripped bare the pretense that coats too much modern popular music." Tom Murphy, QUEEN CITY SOUNDS AND ART Big Dopes recalls the loose, lighthearted feel of 90s alternative and indie, like Built to Spill and Pavement. Lead songwriter Eddie Schmid uses a playful, conversational baritone to sing through neuroses about long-distance relationships, being a houseguest, and wasting money on busted headphones. In August 2021, the Denver band released "Lovers on the Weekdays," the first single from their sophomore album Destination Wedding, due November 5, 2021. With that came the band's first official tour, taking them through the Midwest and Colorado's Front Range. In 2019, the band released its debut album Crimes Against Gratitude. It was named one of the best albums of the year by Birdy Magazine, and one of the Top Colorado Albums of 2019 by Colorado Public Radio. Submitted by: Big Dopes Big Dopes

Description: KILLER QUEEN featuring Patrick Myers Friday, October 22, 2021 Doors 6:30pm The Killer Queen show has been rescheduled to Friday, October 22, 2021. Hold on to your tickets. All previously purchased tickets will be valid for the new date with no action needed. Thanks for your patience and hope to see you soon! The premier Queen tribute band, Killer Queen, will be bringing their must-see live show to the United Sates for dates this fall. Singer Patrick Myers is an absolute dead ringer for the legendary Freddie Mercury (both visually and vocally), resulting in a live concert experience that is second only to catching an ‘80s era Queen performance. Formed back in June of 1993, Killer Queen quickly became incredibly popular in their native England – resulting in a residency at London’s Strand Theatre, winning “Worldwide Best Tribute Band” at an awards ceremony in Leicester Square, and performing stadium shows – including being selected to represent Queen in a re-staged tribute Live Aid concert held by Sir Bob Geldof. And the accolades continue to pour in, including Duncan Kennedy of BBC 1 declaring “No detail is overlooked. Killer Queen are kings of the musical impersonators, the highest of tributes.” BBC Yorkshire’s Kate Lock added, “Killer Queen rocked the race crowd to the Ebor Stand’s rafters at the York Music Showcase last Saturday. The massive (15,000) Knavesmire crowd bounced, roared enthusiastically & punched the air on the terraces to Killer Queen’s charismatic and uncannily accurate renditions of the Queen back catalogue… Freddie/Patrick, strutted for all the world as if it were Live Aid.” Get ready for a rocking good time, with Killer Queen! All Ages. All seating reserved. Concessions and full bars open! Also featuring local favorites Nancy's A-Maize-N Sandwich Booth and Wichita Brewing Company Hand-Crafted Beers! Check Room is open during events to check your merchandise purchases, coats, hats and purses. Text CLASSICROCK to 49798 for concert updates and chances at FREE tickets.

Description: HIGHLY SUSPECT Presented By T-95 Concessions and full bars open! Also featuring local favorites Nancy's A-Maize-N Sandwich Booth. All Ages Support acts subject to change A limited number of table reservations are available by calling 316-722-4201 or in person at The Cotillion. Text HS to 49798 for presale info on 9/15. Text ROCK to 49798 for concert updates. MCID. This is the slogan tattooed on bodies across the world, four letters that hold so much meaning, a mystery to anyone who is not in the know. Highly Suspect members Johnny Stevens and twins Rich and Ryan Meyer had not only been playing music for eight years before topping radio charts, garnering Grammy nominations, and selling out tours- but they also had been gradually accruing a cast of comrades that orbited their star, friends and chosen family that would travel the world with them, move cross country with them, and become pet parents with them. The growing community of companions have a name, and it is MCID. Originally from Cape Cod, the three band members played covers in dive bars and moved to a studio apartment in Brooklyn together. In 2015, they gained national recognition after the release of their debut album Mister Asylum on 300 Entertainment and their singles “Lydia” and “Bloodfeather” topped the rock radio charts. The next year they performed at the Grammy Ceremony, receiving two nominations for Best Rock Album and Best Rock Song. In 2017 the band traveled to Bogota, Colombia to record their second album, The Boy Who Died Wolf. It was released in November 2016 and the success of hits “Little One” and “My Name Is Human,” earned the band a third Grammy nomination for Best Rock Song. And now the band is ready to release album three, a manifesto full of lead singer Johnny Steven’s private confessions, packed to the brim with themes of self loathing, body image issues, substance abuse, addressing his complicated past and trying to change his future. There is also a sprinkle of his outspoken anti-Trump political stance, and stories of heartbreak and hope. It’s not surprising that his most vulnerable collection of songs is addressed directly to his chosen family, his followers, and his comrades- the title of the album is MCID. MCID is packed with surprise major hip hop features, a collaboration with the metal band Gojira, some Swahili versus, and a lead single, “Sixteen”, that is completely guitar free. The lyrics describe the true story of Stevens falling in love at sixteen years old, fostering a relationship for seven years, and feeling elated when she told him she was pregnant with their baby. The song describes his instant devastation the moment of the birth when he found out that the baby wasn't his, the baby was a different race. Though a wild story, the lyrics capture the gut wrenching feeling of first love lost, betrayal, and regret. Other standout songs are his collaboration with Young Thug on “Tokyo Ghoul”, and “Canals” which captures his frustration with the Trump presidency, saying that his rage feels like “someone took a crack pipe, lit it with a torch light, and threw it on a gas line- there is fire everywhere”.
