Host a Catholic Exchange Student
Global Outreach is a Catholic exchange program matching excellent students (male and female) from Eastern Europe with Catholic American families. These students spend one academic year in an Omaha archdiocesan high school, living with a Catholic family, learning to be servant leaders for their communities in former Communist countries. Host families are still needed for the 2023-2024 academic year. Please contact Monsignor James Gilg at 402-618-0607, Dee Drozd at 402-440-0817, or Allison Drozd at 402-580-1369 if you are interested. Read a letter from one of this year’s applicant’s here.
Do you, or someone you love, have questions about faith and meaning? Alpha is a course that focuses on building relationships in the community and sharing reactions to the basic tenets of Christianity. All Alphas have food (free), a talk, and a discussion. It is a great place to go for a small group experience or if you are new to our community.
Alpha will start on February 23rd, 6:30 p.m. in St. Thomas Cafeteria/Social Hall. Just show up, or sign-up here.

Want to be an Usher?
During the Mass, Ushers are responsible to take up the church offering. They help minimize any distractions that may occur during the Mass. In case of an emergency, Ushers take the lead in getting people to safety.
After Mass, Ushers are again at the door to greet folks as they leave, hand out bulletins, and help as needed.
If you are currently an Usher or would like to become an Usher, please contact Eric Whitesides at firstname.lastname@example.org.
