January 14, 2022: Weekend Update

Dear St. Teresa Parishioners, Hope you enjoy Mother Nature’s weekend shenanigans. It seems she’s decided that false-spring is over (or was this final-autumn?) and we’re back to a proper and respectable winter. Nebraska always keeps us on our toes, doesn’t it? It’ll be nice to have snow overnight and enjoy its bright beauty on a Saturday. The days are getting …

December 23, 2021: Weekend Update

Dear St. Teresa Parishioners, Merry (almost) Christmas! We strongly recommend taking extra time with the Lord in quiet prayer while the church is so beautifully decorated for Christmas; it is sublime. The greatest game of Tetris ever played turned out to be this week’s bulletin! Pick one up if you’d like to see the game winning masterpiece. Otherwise, be sure …

December 3, 2021: Weekend Report

Dear St. Teresa Parishioners, This e-mail—and the printed bulletin—are chock full of new announcements. There’s no “fluff” (as my rather wise high school teacher Mr. Svec would say when he wanted a real essay and not a 12-pt double-spaced paper full of repetitious teenaged baloney). Knowing that, please take the time to go over the announcements so you’re not missing …

There are a variety of jobs to be completed. Adults, teens, and children able to work alongside their parent are appreciated (children can be signed up with their parent). Supplies will be …

Dear Parishioners, Thank you for your prayers for Fr. Hottovy as he continues to recover from COVID-19. He’s slowly but steadily improving. Father’s doctor instructed him to quarantine until Nov 28th; he will be available on a limited schedule after that. His message to you is: “Thank you for your continued prayers, cards, and support. I continue to get better …

November 19, 2021: Weekend Report

Dear Parishioners, On Friday, November 19, we celebrated the Solemnity of the Dedication of St. Teresa Church with a special school Mass.  Our beautiful church was first dedicated on Nov. 19, 1952.  That means that this sacred structure has been the place that this community has gathered to worship the Lord for 69 years!  It’s a good opportunity to reflect …

November 5, 2021: Weekend Update

Dear Saint Teresa Parishioners, PSA: Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday at 2am. At this time in our technologically advanced community, most of our clocks change themselves. But for those of you dependent upon a manual clock: remember to turn it back an hour. It’s finally time that we’re reimbursed for the hour that was so barbarously taken from us back …
