The St. Patrick School Survey is complete. It was designed to gain parishioner feedback about building a Catholic School. The Parish Council and Finance Council will continue to work with Fr. Baxter to study the survey findings and address the possibility of a Catholic Grade School. 

Faith Resources

There is a lot going on in our world today.  Turning to the Lord in all things can help us to make some sense of it and find peace.  Check out these resources to grow in your faith.


The realities of a changing world call for new directions to strengthen parish life across the Archdiocese of Omaha.



The National Eucharistic Revival is a movement to restore understanding and devotion to this great mystery here in the United States.



The Catholic Voice is the digital media outlet for the Archdiocese of Omaha, spread across the 23 counties of northeastern Nebraska, serving more than 230,000 people.


The community of St Patrick is one of faith and commitment to the Lord.

We, the faithful community of St. Patrick, are using our collective gifts to serve the Lord and one another.  Through worship, faith, formation, education, and outreach we strive to be a sign of Christ’s presence in our community and the world.



The Mass is our most important prayer as Catholic Christians. The Church tells us that celebrating the Mass is the “source and summit” of our Christian life.

Friday Funny  While the pope was visiting the USA, he told the driver of his limo that he has the sudden urge to drive. The driver was a good Catholic man, and would not ever dream of questioning the pope’s authority. So the pope sat at the wheel, while his driver got in the back. They were traveling down the road doing between 70 and 80 mph, when a policeman happened to see them. As he pulled them over, he called in to headquarters reporting a speeding limo, with a VIP inside it.  The chief asked: “Who is in the limo, the mayor?”  The policeman told him: “No, someone more important than the mayor.”  Then the chief asked “Is it the governor?”  The policeman answered: “No, someone more important than the governor.”  The chief finally asked: “Is it the President?”  The policeman answered: “No, someone even more important than the President.”  This made the chief very angry and he bellowed: “Now who is more important than the President?!”  The policeman calmly whispered: “I’ll put it to you this way chief. I don’t know who is this guy, but he has the pope as his chauffeur.”
One of the most remarkable things about our faith is that by God’s grace, we have become His adopted sons and daughters.  To help you uncover this deeper meaning, we will begin an eight-week Bible study Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance on Monday, September 19 from 7 PM to 8:30 PM.  Participants will meet every week to view an engaging video presentation followed by a time of lively group discussion and fellowship.

Thank you to everyone who responded to Pope Francis and Archbishop Lucas’ invitation to complete a synod questionnaire or participate in a listening session this past winter. Approximately 8,000 people from across the Archdiocese of Omaha participated. The synthesis of the feedback received can be found at archomaha.org/synod. The synthesis has been submitted to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops as part of the 2021-2023 synodal process.

Christ call us to anticipate His return, but why?  As Christians, we believe not only in life after death, we also believe that God will reunite our souls and bodies together at the end of time. At the resurrection of the body, we will have a body like Christs, a spiritual body.  How are you preparing for Christs Second Coming?
Could you imagine being on the top of Mount Tabor with Jesus during His transfiguration? The Bible tells us that His clothes became dazzling white and His face shone like the sun.  Today as we celebrate the Transfiguration of the Lord, take some time to meditate on what it would have been like to be Peter, James, or John who stood with our Lord in all His glory.
Friday Funny  What do you call an angel that seats you at a restaurant?  A Heavenly Host!

The Church dedicates the month of August to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Over the centuries, as saints and theologians reflected on how Mary pondered and treasured the sacred events from the life of Christ in her holy heart, as attested in Scripture, her pure heart was recognized as something to be imitated.  Devotion to Our Lady’s purity of heart began to flower—so much so that in the 17th century, St. John Eudes promoted it alongside the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The devotion rose to a new level after the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, when Mary revealed an image of her Immaculate Heart to Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco.
