The Leaven - Listen

The Leaven is the official newspaper of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. The Leaven provides weekly news to more than 186,000 Catholics in the archdiocese, which spans an area of 12,524 square miles in 21 counties, including those in the Kansas City area, Lawrence, Ottawa, Topeka, and Emporia. Much of the news reported in The Leaven is derived from the activities of the 105 parishes spread across those counties and their parishioners.

The Leaven is published weekly every Friday, September through May, and bimonthly from June through August, and is mailed into the home of every registered Catholic. The Leaven is a 16-page tabloid; subscriptions cost $21 a year, and are paid through parish envelopes, although individual subscriptions are available on request.
