Holy Rosary Credit Union (Kansas City) and United Catholic Credit Union (Raytown) recently merged to form Holy Rosary, a united Catholic credit union. The credit union's mission is to provide affordable access to top-of-the-line financial products and to be the best in personal service for the Catholic parishes in Missouri. “Together we can do what we can’t do alone,” says Carole Wight, president of Holy Rosary.
Both credit unions share similar histories and a passion for serving their Catholic membership. Holy Rosary Credit Union was founded in the basement of Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Columbus Park in 1943. Since its founding, Holy Rosary has served parishes in North-East Kansas City with the underlying value of people helping people in our faith community. United Catholic Credit Union was founded in 1953 in Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Parish. United Catholic has operated under the motto “Not for Profit, Not for Charity, but for Service.”
As Holy Rosary, a united Catholic credit union, the membership will have access to new and improved services. United Catholic's membership will now have access to Holy Rosary Credit Union’s online bill pay service, its VISA credit card, more than 28,000 free ATMs and more. Soon they will be offering business accounts, small business loans and are working to become a part of a shared branching network.
