A place of peace and worship for all people across the metropolitan area for 150 years.
Omaha’s downtown parish.

From the Pastor

Last weekend we had a huge wedding.  It was originally planed for last year but because of the pandemic they moved to to 2021.  The bride’s family has a long history at SMM so when they asked if they could remove some of the ropes and signs from the pews I said of course.  (Some had already been removed by then as I have been gradually taking them down.) This weekend we had another rescheduled wedding that again wanted the ropes down and because next weekend they will all have to come down anyway, I decided not to put any back up.  Each weekend more and more people are coming back, which I am thrilled to see.  As Catholic/Christians we are by design a community who gathers together as the Body of Christ to be fed by the Word, by the Eucharist and by our communal celebration.  I hope we can gather responsibly and without fear.  Some people have avoided crowds for over a year, and are only now venturing back out into society. Please help me welcome everyone back to Mass.  I know you will be kind and patient and respectful.  Remember the words from the First Letter of John we hear proclaimed this weekend: Beloved, if God so loved us, we also must love one another.  God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him.

Blessings, Fr. Rodney

May the Lord continue to bless everyone who enters St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church as they seek strength and consolation from God in this holy place. And may God be with all those who leave this church, as they go forth as living signs of His presence.
