Midtown Catholic is a community of two parishes in the Archdiocese of Omaha. We are One Church: Encountering Jesus, Equipping Disciples, and Living Mercy.
Mothers’ Day Rose Sale

Volunteers from the STM Knights of Columbus will be handing out roses after Masses in exchange for a suggested $5 donation per rose in support of EPS. Checks should be made payable to EPS. Please consider supporting EPS in their efforts to provide life-affirming pregnancy options and free services for women facing unplanned and under supported pregnancies. Questions?

Totus Tuus this Summer
Totus Tuus is returning to Midtown July 9-14, 2023! Held at St. Thomas More and open to youth going into 1st through 12th grades, Totus Tuus, meaning “totally yours,” is an incredible summer camp where youth learn from about Christ through song, prayer, Mass, games, and more! Registration info coming soon – watch the bulletin, website, and facebook for more details.
We also can’t do this program without you! Please prayerfully consider volunteering to help with one or more of the following tasks:
- Housing: Four young adult missionaries from the Archdiocese visit our parish to put on this program. They need a place to stay while they are here.
- Food: Our missionaries need meals provided during the week!
- Middle and High school helpers: We encourage youth who attend the evening program to help out during the day program. It’s a great way to earn service hours.
- Adult volunteers for the day program. The RE Coordinator needs at least one adult each day helping with the 1st through 6th grade program (supervising doors, sign in, classrooms, lunch). This person must be safe environment trained. Safe environment training is provided by the Archdiocese for no cost, contact Rachel Bielstein at the parish office for more info.
Please direct all questions to Rachel Bielstein at 402-556-1456 or email@example.com

“The Eucharist is the bread that gives strength… It is at once the most eloquent proof of His love and the most powerful means of fostering His love in us. He gives Himself every day so that our hearts as burning coals may set afire the hearts of the faithful.” ~ St. Damien of Molokai
