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.

The month of December is dedicated to the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Chosen before time to be the Mother of God Incarnate, Jesus Christ, God created Mary perfect and full of grace, preserving her from the stain of Original Sin. Mary Immaculate is the most beautiful fruit of the work of redemption accomplished by her Son, thereby making her the perfect model of holiness for all Christians.

Happy Catholic New Year! With the start of Advent comes the beginning of the new liturgical year and the preparations of Christs coming (both as an infant at Christmas and in His Second Coming). What can you do today to prepare yourself for the coming of Christ?
This is the last weekend to drop off new or gently used hats, coats, gloves, scarves, and sleeping bags for the Gretna Knights of Columbus Winter Gear Drive. Donations will be given to Least of My Brethren  to be distributed to those in need this winter.
Friday Funny  God initially planned to use wasps to pollinate flowers.
But in the end, He went with plan Bee.
A blessed Thanksgiving to you and your family. Remember the blessings of the Lord this day and offer prayers for those less fortunate this holiday season. Gods blessing to all!
UPDATE: If you wont be present Christmas weekend. You can drop off your Blessing Box in the St. Patrick parish library/coat closet before Christmas weekend.  This Advent consider creating a Blessing Box to be given to a family in need. Each day from November 27 through December 24, place one non-perishable food item in your Blessing Box. There will be a truck from Least of My Brethren parked at St. Patrick during the Masses on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, for you to be able to bring in your Blessing Box for donation. Thank you for your generosity feeding the hungry this Christmas!

This is so awesome. I wish everyone can experience the happiness and joy felt by someone on the receiving end of one of these blessing boxes. Many of the individuals we help are struggling to turn their life around. Most have been homeless and have fought addiction problems. They have gotten themselves cleaned up and are trying to turn the corner. Many do not have full-time work have only limited income. What they have goes to pay rent and utilities. Often times food becomes a luxury item they cannot afford. A blessing box like this is so tremendous. Thank you all. 

My roommates and I are excited to put a box together.

What a wonderful idea!

Next Tuesday is Giving Tuesday, a day that kicks off the charitable holiday spirit and motivates end-of-year giving. St. Patrick Church asks all parishioners to prayerfully consider their return to God and His Church through stewardship consisting of these equally important elements—Prayer and Presence, Gifts of Service or Time and Talent, and Financial Gift or Treasure. We are a tithing parish and recommend 5% of a family’s gross income go to our parish, 1% to the Omaha Archdiocese, and 4% to other charities of your choice. Find out how you can donate to St. Patrick this year at
On this day the Church celebrates World Day of Cloistered Life, an ecclesial event for all Catholics to commemorate the hidden lives of cloistered and monastic religious.  Consider watching Vocation Ministrys YouTube series Behind the Veil for an inside look at religious life.

Thank you for promoting our YouTube Channel! God Bless!

Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. He replied to him, Amen, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.  Do we have the faith of St. Dismas, the good thief, to recognize the crucified Christ as our Lord and Savior, King of Heaven and Earth? Jesus we want to see you in all your glory.
The Advent Giving Trees will be in the narthex, as well as the south entrance this weekend for those parishioners who wish to donate a gift to a family in need. Please check out your ornament on the sheet provided. Many of the adult ornaments are for parishioners in need who are homebound or in care facilities. Your wrapped gifts should be returned by Thursday, December 8. Thank you for your consideration to reach out to those in need.
Friday Funny  When is a king like a piece of wood?
When it’s a ruler.
