Spring Forward

This Sunday is the beginning of Daylight savings. Don’t forget to set your car, stove, and other “unconnected” clocks so we can see you at Mass!

Fr. Frank Baumert’s Role (Letter)

You may have noticed some inconsistency with the priest rotation we are used to. Fr. Baumert explains his role going forward with the Archdiocese and with Midtown Catholic. Plus, he has a challenge for all of us. Read the letter here.

If you get a chance, please thank Fr. Frank for his continued service to Midtown Catholic and the Archdiocese. Ask him how you can continue to serve the church with your state in life.

Teachers on Retreat

The St. Joan of Arc Teachers will be on Retreat this Thursday, March 9th. Please pray for them to have a fruitful retreat.

STM Mac & Cheese


God is love, and nowhere is His Love more clearly revealed than in Christ’s Passion. Jesus shows us that the glory and elation that is love demands sacrifice and struggle. Married couples experience love’s joys but must also bear its crosses.

Love, Marriage, and the Stations of the Cross is a version of the Stations that invites couples who pray and meditate upon it to both enter into Christ’s Passion and to recognize Christlike love in the strivings and beauty of married lives.

Pray the Stations and Reflect Upon Married Love


Presented by Omaha Catholic Engaged Encounter and XIV Ministries.
