:: NEW & UPDATED PARISH ANNOUNCEMENTS ::
Come join us for our Annual Corpus Christi Procession this Sunday (June 6th) after the 8am Mass! We will walk from St. Teresa Church to the Pink Sisters’ Chapel; it will be a simpler procession with an altar only at the end, at the PS Chapel. We would love to have you join us as we honor Our Lord in the Eucharist. Wear comfortable shoes! You are welcome to bring flower petals if you'd like. A bus will take processors back to St. Teresa's after Benediction at the Pink Sisters.
All 7th-12th grade young ladies of the parish are invited to participate in the Honor Guard for the Corpus Christi Procession. Please meet in the church basement at 7:30 before Mass to prepare. You will sit in the front pews during Mass and walk together during the procession.
Altar servers, you are invited to join us in reverencing the Lord through your distinct service. Please meet in the Servers' Sacristy before Mass.
First Communicants and those newly Confirmed are invited to wear their sacramental attire to join this celebration. You may sit with your parents during Mass and join the procession behind the Honor Guard. Though some flower petals will be available, you are welcome to bring your own from home to scatter before the Lord.
Women’s ENDOW Study
Attention, Ladies of the parish! An Endow (Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women) study group is forming at the parish. We will study JPII’s Apostolic Letter on the Rosary, Rosarium Virginia Mariae using ENDOW’s study guide.

Two great summer events for YOUTH:
Our Diocesan Canoe Trip is open to high school youth and college students. Adults are also invited along as sponsors/drivers. Join us in a couple of lazy days along the Niobrara River, along with fellowship, Mass and a lot of fun! Hurry, because space is limited: July 11-13, 2021 [26 spots remaining] and July 13-15, 2021 [60 spots remaining] are the two options.
The Steubenville Conference is specialized to address the needs of today's Catholic youth. With an exciting lineup of speakers, musicians and presenters, the High School Youth Conferences challenge Catholic youth to stand firm in their faith, to rely upon the awesome power of Jesus Christ as their guide, friend and Savior, and to show them that faith to the world. Expect a high-energy youth conference where thousands of teens are invited to encounter Jesus Christ through dynamic speakers, engaging music, the Sacraments, small group discussions, and fellowship with other teens. Students entering 9th grade through just graduated Seniors are able to attend, but there are only 35 more spots remaining.
To register for either or both of these events, go to https://www.lincolndiocese.org/youth/youth-ministry .
