Pave the Way
Last week’s bulletin provided a great update on our four phases of the “Pave the Way” project. I sincerely thank the many consistence contributors, large and small, who are slowly but surely moving this project toward completion and I pledge to join you with my personal financial support. Remember you can donate via “OMAHA GIVES” on Wednesday May 25th from Midnight to Midnight at OmahaGives24.org.
Our New Associate Pastor
I am pleased to announce and welcome our new Associate Pastor, Father Pat Nields, who will join us on July 1, 2016. Archbishop Lucas wanted to give us a priest so fresh that he isn’t even a priest yet. Deacon Pat will be ordained a priest on June 4th in the cathedral.
Pat’s home parish is St. Philip Neri Church in Omaha. He grew up in Omaha, in the Florence area. His high school years were at Creighton Prep where he admired the Jesuits he got to know. After high school, he attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and obtained a degree in Business. Later, he attended Creighton and obtained a law degree. Passing the Nebraska Bar Exam, he worked as an attorney for a local law firm for over nine years. The law exposed and educated him to various aspects of life. read more...
