Sign up, order your “Remember The Unborn” shirt and be a witness to life. 78% of post-abortion women said if one person had offered support or if they had one supportive sign, they would have chosen life. Wear your jersey in public and be that one person and sign to impact hearts for saving lives.

St. Vincent de Paul Outreach Ministry

Tim Peffer, Director 402-551-2313
Our volunteers take calls, check request information, prepare pantry supplies, and treat each caller with the dignity and respect they deserve as children of God.
They daily talk with and meet with people down on their luck who are looking for assistance with rent, utilities, food.
This outreach ministry of Cathedral is often the only way that some people see the mercy of God.
Donations accepted and appreciated. The money from the “poor boxes” in church fund this ministry too.

Mass Ministries

Parishioners of all ages may find a way to participate at Mass through one of our ministries: greeters; gift bearers; altar servers; ushers; lectors; choir; Eucharistic ministers; sacristans.
Call Sheila in the Cathedral Administration Office if you would like to help! 402-551-2313
