Neighbors helping neighbors. Currently located in 31 parish Conferences, including St. Thomas More and St. Joan of Arc, volunteer members make home visits (currently phone calls) to their neighbors in need to provide person-to-person services, including assisting with housing, utility and transportation needs.
Please call the parish office at (402) 556-1456.
We desire to make our weekend Masses remarkable experiences. It’s more than greeters. In the New Testament, the Greek word “philoxenia,” translated “hospitality,” literally means “love of strangers.” A simple gesture of welcome from one of us can also be a powerful experience of love for those who feel like strangers. It is not only a Gospel mandate, but it is also the most effective way to help outsiders feel like they belong.
Our hospitality teams serve at St. Joan of Arc’s Saturday 5:30 PM Mass and St. Thomas More’s Sunday 10:30 AM Mass.
Both St. Thomas More and St. Joan of Arc have Perpetual Adoration. Eucharistic adoration provides a sacred space in which to simply “be” in the loving Presence of our Lord.
If you would like to know more, or want to commit to an hour, (even just a trial hour), please contact:
