September 3, 2021: Bulletin & Announcements

Dear Saint Teresa Parishioners, Hello, September! The wonderful sounds of Fall are here: Pius’s marching band in the mornings, children playing outdoors and at recess, and Friday night football games. Now this is Nebraska, so we all know that Summer will throw at least one more temperature-tantrum (get it?) before Autumn pushes it out, but we’re almost there! We look …

August 27, 2021: Weekend Report

Dear Saint Teresa Parishioners, Thanks for tuning in this week! Last week’s regularly scheduled parish e-mail—and this week’s office hours—were interrupted by an unscheduled COVID quarantine for my children, during which I temporarily became a stay-at-home mom again. Fear not: the patients have recovered, their siblings (and parents) did not become ill, and the quarantine is over. Thanks to all …

July 30, 2021: Weekend Report

Dear Saint Teresa Parishioners, One can’t help but comment on the weather. The Dog Days of Summer are upon us. Why do we say Dog Days?  The term/idea evolved from “the heliacal rising of the star system Sirius” which is also known as the dog star, or Canis Majoris. Here in Nebraska, the rising of this constellation coincides with hot, …

July 23, 2021: Bulletin & Announcements

Dear Saint Teresa Parishioners, This coming week, there will NOT be 8:15 Mass on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. All three of our priests are out of town on those days. The overlap is unfortunate but was unavoidable. Fr. Nicholas Baker and Msgr. Paul Witt will say the 6:30am Masses. Should you urgently need a priest during this time, please …

July 16, 2021: Bulletin & Information

Dear Saint Teresa Parishioners, As always, thanks for taking time to review the announcements—at least the new ones! There are changes and events and news to be reviewed for our own parish this week, and quite a bit has been added to the diocese-wide section. Hope that summer is going well for you. There’s no way that parents would be …

July 9, 2021: Weekend Missive

Dear Saint Teresa Parishioners, While looking up synonyms for announcements I stumbled across the word missive and found that it means, “a letter, especially a long or official one … [the term is] often used humorously” It seems quite appropriate for the lengthy parish e-mails that we’ve been sending this past year. Thanks for taking time to peruse this missive …
