Parishes observe safety guidelines as public liturgies resume

More than Watchmen Count on Daybreak
Highlights from ArchOmaha Unite
2019 Blue Mass
At 6:30 each Tuesday morning, a group of teenage guys gathers in a small chapel for the Liturgy of the Hours. They attend a Catholic school, but no one compels them to show up before class (and often before sunrise) to recite the Church's ancient prayers.
On June 8, 2019, thousands gathered in downtown Omaha to celebrate unity on the feast of Pentecost. Ordinary Catholics from across the archdiocese shared their unique witness stories on stage, and Archbishop George J. Lucas led attendees in praying for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Archbishop Lucas celebrated the annual Blue Mass on Oct. 1, 2019 at St. Thomas More Catholic Church and imparted a special blessing on all the men and women who serve our community as first responders.
