The Adult Religious Education at St. Mary's church strives to deepen the faith and expand the works of the people of God in the parish. We progress toward the building of God's kingdom and eternal life with the Father (Trinity) through a variety of select programs and activities which focus on:

  • Moving towards a deeper and personal relationship with God
  • The love of God (incarnation and resurrection)
  • Our understanding of scripture and church tradition
  • The quality and quantity of our prayer
  • Increasing our participation in the sacraments
  • The promotion of parish adult religious education
  • Expanding ministerial vocations
  • Expanding course offerings and attendees

Happenings for Early 2018

Tuesdays
: The Feast of Judaism by Steven Binz: Starts February 6th. An appreciation for the feasts of Judaism will help Christians understand modern Judaism and the faith of Jesus. The biblical festivals are celebrations of God's saving actions for all generations. In the Jewish rituals, the past becomes present and all partake of the saving graces of God's redemption. Study the pilgrim feasts of Passover, Pentecost, and Booths, the high holy days of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kuppur, The minor feasts of the Ninth of Ov, Purim, and Hanukkah, and the Sabbath and Jubilee Year. Understand the roots of the Christian faith in the faith of our elder brothers and sisters in Judaism. The class will be held Tuesday evenings in the Dominican Center at 6:30pm. The Facilitator for this study is Dave Garrison. The cost of materials will be $12.

March 10th - 14th: St. Mary's Lenten Parish Mission: Starts March 10th. Father Steven Bell C.S.P. will be preaching at all masses on March 10th and 11th. Fr. Bell will hold his mission on March 12th through March 14th. You may find more information on Fr. Bell at www.paulist.org.

Safe Environment Training: If you volunteer or work with the youth of St. Mary's then you will need to be Safe Environment Certified. St. Mary's next class will be held in January. If you need to be safe environment trained before January you will need to attend a class held by another parish. You will be able to find class times and locations at archomaha.org under the ministries tab or at omaha.CMGconnect.org.
