ArchOmaha UNITE - Registration OPEN
Thousands of people have already registered for the ArchOmaha Unite event, but there’s still room in the CHI Health Arena for you! Space is limited and registration is free, so we recommend you register early. For more information about the event or to register, go to Unite - dot - ArchOmaha - dot - org. Did You Know… That the Parish who registers the highest percentage of their Mass attendees for Unite gets reserved VIP seating in the arena? That means there will be no need to get there early to get good seats because you’ll have the best seats in the house! And, there will be no need to save seats between sessions. Register now and help the entire parish snag great seats!
UNITE Q&A: “How much do tickets cost?”
The Archdiocese of Omaha values your presence so much that admission to Unite is free. That's right - FREE! Youth and Adult attendees must preregister online individually prior to the event; admission is subject to space and availability. Out-of-town attendees may take advantage of a group hotel room rate at the Hilton Omaha, across the street from the CHI Health Center.

Alpha Food Donations
Plans are being finalized for the upcoming Alpha session starting January 27. One of the integral parts of each Alpha session is a shared meal of all the guests and Alpha team members. Food donations by our Alpha alumni and parishioners help to defray the costs of each meal for the 12 weeks.
Weekly emails sent through Sign-up Genius allow you to see what food items are needed for that week. Food donations can be brought to the Fellowship Hall when you come to church that weekend, or dropped off on Sunday afternoon by 4:15 PM.
If you are interested in donating food or have any questions, please contact Jean Thompson at email@example.com or 402-331-7524.
Please prayerfully consider answering the call of discipleship for the upcoming Alpha session.

St. Gerald Advent Retreat - Saturday, December 1
The Advent and Christmas seasons are upon us. Similar to Lent, the Advent season is a time of interior preparation in joyful anticipation of God's gift of new Life. The message of Advent, "Prepare the Way", is an urgent and ageless message and certainly a message for our times. It is a call to conversion, to discipleship and to preparedness for the coming of Christ who longs to enter more deeply into our hearts. Please join Fr. Mark as we take a closer look at our interior life and how we can experience more fully the birthing of God's incarnate love (Jesus) within our hearts each and every day.
