  • 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

Fall 2018 Classes

We are still planning the fall classes and schedule. Keep checking with us for some new and interesting classes to attend!

Wednesdays: Say Your Prayers by Fr. Mark Toups: Starts October 1st.
Do you find it easy to pray? Is prayer an integral part of your day? Do you hear God's voice in your daily life and know how to respond accordingly?
The Oremus study program teaches you the essentials of an effective and fruitful prayer life. Over the course of eight weeks you will discover how God speaks to you, even in the smallest encounters. Following the Tradition of the Catholic Church and the wisdom of the saints, you will learn how to express yourself to God in prayer and how to hear his voice.
In Oremus you will: Become aware of God's presence in your life. Discover the simple yet profound steps of Catholic prayer. Learn how to respond to God and express yourself in prayer. Discover how to hear God's voice in Scripture, in your heart, and in ordinary moments. Learn how to overcome frustrations, distractions, and dryness in prayer with God and those around you.Wednesday afternoons in St. Marks at 1:30pm. The Facilitator for this study is Deacon Chuck L'Archevesque.

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. In order to take the class you will need to sign up as a new user and preregister at omaha.CMGconnect.org prior to the session. Class size is limited. Please contact the RE office at (402)291-7222 for any further questions.

We are always looking for adults with a desire to learn and share in our faith. If you are interested in a topic, event, or workshop that you would like to see at St. Mary's please contact the Religious Education office. Remember, anyone can become a facilitator of our faith to others.
