   Perpetual Adoration
Contact Maggie Kopsa at 402-362-6445. Parishioners volunteer to invest one hour of their week in prayer with our Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament in our Parish Church. We would like to encourage more parishioners to take an hour of adoration, and to make the program truly "Perpetual Adoration". Please list the preferred Day and Hour on the Gifts & Talents Survey you would like to be with our Eucharistic Lord.

Volunteers are needed to be a Day Captain for each day of the week. The role of the Day Captains would be to promote and encourage more parishioners to commit to one hour a week so that all the hours in their day is filled. Please write down "Captain" above the Day you are willing to serve in this capacity.

   Natural Family Planning (NFP)
Contact the Rectory at 402-362-4595, or Diocesan Coordinator Mrs Michele Chamber 488-2040 ext 320. Natural Family Planning is the only method of family planning that does not require the use of harsh chemicals, devices or surgical procedures. NFP is a morally acceptable method of regulating pregnancy. Couples using NFP easily learn to recognize and accurately identify signs of fertility by observing the natural phases of the menstrual cycle. With an understanding of their fertility they can choose to use this method to either achieve or postpone a pregnancy. The Creighton Ovulation Method provides the most effective means of achieving a pregnancy. It is also 99.6% effective for avoiding a pregnancy - more effective than any form of artificial contraceptive.
