Serve Here. Grow Here.

Please call the parish office at (402) 556-1456.

Hospitality

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.

Serve Here. Grow Here.

If you have questions, contact TJ at tjsimpson@midtowncatholic.church or call 402-556-1456, ext. 203.

Adoration

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.

Food for the Francis House

Food for the Francis House has been in existence at St Joan of Arc since 1983.  We provide the supper meal every 3rd Friday of the month.  Menu is meat loaf, scalloped potatoes, baked beans, & desserts.  Each person who brings one of the mentioned should have it feed at least 10 people.  We are always in need of volunteers.  No meetings involved. 

Maybe cooking is not your thing? They also need people to help deliver it.
