Knights of Columbus Coats for Kids

Click on image to pop up a full sized version of this image. Thank you for your generous support of the Knights' 2019 Coats for Kids Fundraiser! We are humbled by your response and generosity! Together we raised $12,000 which will allow for the purchase of over 450 brand new Coats for Kids who would otherwise go without! We will be distributing them soon within Ralston area schools! This fundraiser was an incredible success and we are so appreciative of your support. May Christ's peace be with you all!
-Pat Garnatz, Coats for Kids Chair

A testimonial received from Ralston teachers regarding the distribution of Coats for Kids: "As a teacher, we see students not prepared for the cold weather. Many of our students walk to school in just a hoodie. Our parents want to provide but it’s a tough choice to make when you live in poverty. When our kids were called down to receive their free winter coats it was like Christmas morning. We appreciate your help more than you know!!" -- Ms. H and Ms. Y

60th Anniversary Slide Show


Seeking Truth Bible Study

Click on image to pop up a full sized version of this image. You are invited to participate in a faith building program called Seeking Truth Catholic Bible Study! It is designed to help us grow deeper in love and understanding of our Catholic faith through the Scriptures. Weekly meetings will discuss a lesson from the book of Exodus that you prepare in advance at home. The lesson will be discussed followed by an engaging video by the teaching director, Sharon Doran. All three Nebraska bishops support this program which was founded in Omaha. You can read more about the program on their website.

We will meet at St. Gerald's 96th & Q Multipurpose Room every Tuesday from 7:00-8:30pm for 11 weeks starting September 10. To register, contact Lonnie and Mary Dinneen or Ralph and Bonnie Pulte.

RCIA Starting September 10

Click on image to pop up a full sized version of this image. Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is an avenue for interested inquirers to learn about the Catholic Faith. Through the program, they walk the journey of faith with fellow parishioners who are dedicated in their desire to learn about God through the Catholic Faith. These men and women meet on a weekly basis from September through Easter.

Just as in the early Christian Community, Baptism takes place at Easter time. Families and friends are welcome to enjoy this joyful event with those who have completed the steps to a defining point in their lives.
