Once the holiday festivities are over call us to pick up your Christmas tree. Our middle school campers and their parents will come to your home or business and haul away your tree for $10 per tree. Proceeds will offset our diocesan summer camp costs. Thank you!
1) Schedule your pick up for Dec. 31 by calling 816-229-3378 ext. 314 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We are scheduling pick ups now.
2) Remove all tinsel, ornaments, lights, etc. from your tree.
3) Put the tree on your porch—we’ll take it from there!
Trees will be delivered to the Blue Springs Christmas Tree Recycling Program where they will be chipped into fertilizer mulch and used in the Blue Springs park system.

St. John LaLande Catholic Church in Blue Springs has been voted the best church!!
“I am not sure what was in people’s minds when they voted.
Maybe because of our Youth Programs, maybe our parish
grounds, maybe our music, maybe our school,
maybe the welcoming atmosphere…..
But most of all maybe it is our Mass;
Jesus is here; He truly is.”
