Results from Last Weekend’s Food Drive

The Vincent de Paul Pantry Manager wanted to thank you all for your contributions to last weekend’s food drive. They were impressed with our contributions: the two parishes combined for 1,626 lbs. of food!

Thank you so so much for your help and for coordinating these drives! Your generous donations will help prevent hunger for hundreds of families in our community. Thank you!!!

Teaching Mass October 17th

Join the Serra Club of West Omaha for an engaging evening of reflection at St. Cecilia Cathedral in Omaha for A Teaching Mass: Presenting ourselves to the King. Rev. Frank Baumert will guide participants through the parts of the Mass, its setting in the church building, and the meaning behind those things as they relate specifically to the KINGDOM of Heaven.

The evening will kick off at 6:30 PM with registration in the Narthex where you will pick up a Mass information packet. This 90-minute Teaching Mass will begin promptly at 7:00 PM in the Sanctuary. Please invite family and friends to join us. All are welcome, no cost to attend. RSVP at https:serrawestomaha.org/event/a-teaching-mass-presenting-ourselves-to-the-king/

Christmas Wreath Fundraiser

STM 8th Graders will be selling Christmas Wreaths in the back of Masses on the weekends of October 15th and 22nd. So don’t go buying another wreath ahead of time!

Diaper Drive

Pizza Night

ALL DAY event (11am – 9pm).   We want to give everyone ample time to make it out to the Pizzeria to support St. Joan.  Also, please remind the families to inform our staff when ordering / picking up food that they are with St. Joan.  

Each year La Casa is looking to make improvements to our Family School Fundraisers in an effort to drive turn-out.  This year we wanted to get the kids a little more excited for the evening!  What better way than a Free Scoop of Italian ice Cream for each student (because what kid doesn’t want ice cream 🍦)
