Diocesan and school personnel, along with students, parents and community members, gathered Friday morning for the blessing and dedication ceremony for St. Michael the Archangel High School in northern Lee's Summit, which is opening this month with an enrollment of about 300 students. After several years of planning in the Kansas City-St. Joseph Catholic Diocese, the school was built in 16 months beginning in March 2016, at a cost of about $24 million. The 80-acre campus will include several athletic fields planned over the next few years. [Mike Genet/The Examiner]
