Archbishop George J. Lucas Statement on Dobbs...

Click on image to pop up a full sized version of this image. The Supreme Court's decision in the Dobbs case is a major victory for unborn children, for their mothers and for the cause of justice in our country. Citizens and their elected representatives in each state will now have the opportunity to guarantee the right to life for the child in the womb.

Many in our country will not agree with the reasoning and the decision of the Supreme Court. And some women will still wonder how they can meet the challenge of an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy. This is a moment for each of us to commit to not let any woman face her challenge alone. In the Catholic community, we possess many resources that are well suited to support moms and their children. Mothers and children contribute gifts to our communities that we want to cherish.

Staff Openings

Director of Music Ministry
Teresa Paal is retiring at the end of June. We want to thank Teresa for her dedicated service at St. Gerald and pray the Lord graciously bless her in retirement.

Parish & School Business Manager
Charlie Hoover has been our Business Manager for two and a half years. He originally joined our staff as part of the Evangelization & Discipleship team and moved into his present role when the previous person resigned. Charlie, with the agreement of Fr. Mark and the SLT, has discerned that it is time to step out of the Business Manager and return to Evangelization & Discipleship. We want to thank Charlie for his service in this role and also look forward to his future contributions to moving forward with our vision and mission. His transition will be dependent on back-filling our Business Manager position.

Facilities & Maintenance Support
This is a full time position as part of the Facilities & Maintenance team. The primary location will be at our school, however there may be times when needed at other St. Gerald facilities.

"Don't Mom Alone" Summer Study and Fellowship

8 Thursday nights, 7-8:15pm, running June 9 - July 28 at St. Gerald

Moms of all ages-you are invited to join us for encouragement and inspiration as we discuss the book, "Don't Mom Alone," by author Heather MacFadyn. Being a good mom isn't about doing everything perfect. To ask for help often feels like defeat. Yet when we try to do it all by our own strength, we end up depleted and lonely. This study will reveal how moms can be empowered by God, supported by others, and connected with their children. Whether you work or stay home, whether you have teenagers or babies, you'll find in this study compassionate guidance for your motherhood journey. To register, email Jenny Wiswell at jwiswell@stgerald.org or call the office at 402-331-1955. Books can be purchased through St. Gerald for $17 or through Amazon.

St. Gerald Parish Strategic Plan

The Pastoral Council spent the past five years researching, engaging with the Archdiocese and the Parish at-large, and formulating the St. Gerald Parish Strategic Plan. It is our hope that this Plan will help guide each Ministry, Group, and Parishioner on how to use their gifts to fulfill the Mission and Vision of St. Gerald's.
Download the Strategic Plan (pdf)
Everyone in the parish was invited to a presentation of this plan on May 5, 2022. If you missed it, you can view the video presentation of the strategic plan. For more information and presentations leading up to the strategic plan, visit our Pastoral Planning page.


Letter from Archbishop Lucas

Click on image to pop up a full sized version of this image. Dear Friends in Christ, I recently participated in seven meetings across the archdiocese to kick-off our Journey of Faith pastoral planning process. I came away from these gatherings filled with hope for the future. I am grateful to the clergy and hundreds of parish leaders from each parish who participated.

At these meetings, we looked carefully at trends that shape our current reality - declining religious participation, population shifts and numbers of priests available to serve in parishes. We also grouped parishes in "families" which will work together going forward. Read more...

In these Families of Parishes, we will bring together the best we have to offer, for the good of the whole family. A collaborative approach among parishes, schools and ministries will ensure a stronger future for Catholic life. Priests will be better able to focus on pastoral ministry, in cooperation with brother priests, with shared staff and financial resources to contribute to better stewardship.

Families of Parishes now begin the challenging work of planning for necessary changes. While fear often comes with the prospect of change, we recall the promise of the risen Jesus to be with the Church. He is with us at this important moment.

As we work toward the November goal for submitting plans, I ask you to think of the abundance that Jesus surely wants us to experience as we more fully embrace the mission of living and spreading the gospel. Join me in praying for a holy imagination, to see what God sees for our flourishing.

Thank you for joining this Journey of Faith and for your prayers as we meet, work and plan during the coming months.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend George J. Lucas
Archbishop of Omaha
