New Tabernacle Location
We have some exciting news! Thanks to a few of our generous parishioners who were willing to cover the cost of this minor construction, our beautiful tabernacle at 96th and Q will soon have a new resting place just behind our main altar underneath the crucifix. Hopefully this project will be completed by the end of next week.

Welcome Tami Kuenning!
Tami Kuenning is a Native Nebraskan, born in Wahoo and raised in Omaha through middle-school. She graduated from Mead High and soon thereafter married her high-school sweetheart in 1980. Together, she and her husband Bruce have raised four children and presently take much delight in watching their seven grandchildren grow!
Tami came to know Jesus as a child, growing up Baptist in North Omaha. Her heart for the Lord was formed by the humble example of her hard-working parent's deep love for one another and their children. A particular faithful Sunday school teacher and children's choir director made a deep impact on how Tami viewed God. She fondly recalls, "I remember wanting to live in the church as a child and found a great sense of peace and belonging when I was there".
After marriage, Tami taught dance between raising children and moving with her husband as he advanced his banking career. Through a series of very difficult trials, God, in His divine will and mercy led them in a vastly different direction, bringing them to Omaha in 1993. Eventually, Bruce would begin working in full-time Christian ministry spanning over the past 20 years.
In 1999, Tami began to have deep questions about the reasons she believed what she believed. Her fundamental questions were: "What is Eucharist? and what is Authority?". Because with God, nothing is a coincidence, KVSS radio went on the air just as she began to seek answers to these questions. Through a combination of the radio ministry, Mother Angelica and her EWTN network and her intense desire to know the Truth she eventually entered RCIA at Queen of Apostles Church in Council Bluffs and was confirmed in a small evening Mass with Deacon Darwin Kruse and Maureen as her sponsors and her husband and four of her family members present.
Tami earned her dual degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education from Concordia University. She has taught for Omaha Public Schools and at Holy Name and St. Pius X/St. Leo School in Omaha. My greatest passion in life is introducing Christ to others and witnessing the power of The Holy Spirit transform their brokenness into beauty, peace and joy!
Tami is excited to join the staff at St. Gerald's to encourage and equip the Domestic Church and further our mission to "Encounter Jesus, Make Disciples, and Transform Lives".
Beginning the weekend of June 5 & 6 the wearing of masks at all Masses will be optional. The Fellowship Hall, however, will be reserved during Masses for mask wearers only who would rather not be in an area with others who have no masks. The requirement to wear masks or not for all other church gatherings will be left up to the discretion of each group and their leadership.
