Volunteers Needed: Family Formation Is Looking for Catechists!

Do you enjoy sharing your faith with others?  Do you have a heart for working with children and families?  Midtown Catholic has a great opportunity for you!  Our Wednesday night RE program, Family Formation, is looking for catechists who are willing to work with elementary age children.  Catechists lead children in age-appropriate activities once a month, and experience opportunities to interact with families during the monthly community event as well.  This is your chance to inspire both children and their parents to grow closer to God!  Catechists also are invited to register their children/grandchildren for Family Formation for free.  For more information, contact Rachel Bielstein at the parish office.  Her contact info is 402-556-1456 or rjbielstein@midtown.church.  

Family Formation starts September 6th.

Spots are still open for your family to join us!

September 5th was the Feast of St. Teresa of Calcutta. I once heard from a priest that they had outlawed deacons using more than one Mother Teresa quote in a homily at his seminary- because no one would learn to use other sources! This giant of the 20th century has many inspirational quotes, so instead of one- check out these 25 Quotes
