Collar Series celebrates vocations

Five of his teammates welcome Father Michael Voithofer, associate pastor at St. James Parish in Omaha, to the field during player introductions for the June 19 Collar Series at Werner Park, top photo. Archdiocese of Omaha Padres team members (from left) include Fathers Eliot Schwer (recently ordained), who will serve at St. Patrick Parish in Fremont; John Brancich FSSP, Immaculate Conception, Omaha; Mark Beran, St. Mary, Wayne; Ross Burkhalter, St. Boniface, Elgin, and St. Bonaventure, Raeville; and Damien Cook, Christ the King, Omaha. Although the Omaha priests lost 22-15, it wasn’t for a lack of support from at least one fan, bottom photo. But the Collar Series isn’t about the score, but vocations efforts in the two dioceses, which will share the $40,000 in proceeds from the game. Jim Carroll, executive director of co-sponsor Spirit Catholic Radio called the event a “great opportunity to honor our spiritual fathers … and day not only for the family to get together but for the family to affirm vocations.”
