Sacraments

Baptism

Recognizing that parents are the first teachers of their children in the ways of faith, we offer catechetical instruction to help parents understand their responsibilities as baptized Christian parents, realize the purpose and significance of the sacramental symbols in the ritual of initiation, grasp the reason for renewing their own baptismal vows, make a new commitment to actively live this life of faith and to actively worship with the community.

All new parents or parents who have not had a child baptized within the last five years are required to attend a Baptism preparation class. Baptism preparation class is held the first Sunday of every month at 2:00 p.m. in the Msgr. Kenny Center Upper Room.

For more information, please contact Kolleen Hoffman at the Parish Office.

Marriage

The Sacrament of Marriage is a very special celebration in the life of the Church and Parish Community. We hope and pray that you will find Mary Our Queen a place of welcome and support as you begin to prepare for the Sacred Rites of Marriage.

Please note that all weddings must be scheduled at least 6 months in advance. To be married at Mary Our Queen, we require that at least one member of the engaged couple (or their parents) be a registered parishioner for one year or longer before preparation for the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony may begin.

To begin the process of preparation and scheduling your wedding, please contact Renee Spicka at the Parish Office. She will assist in scheduling the wedding as well as setting up your initial marriage preparation meeting with the Pastor.

Holy Orders

And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven. Matthew 16:18-19

If you are discerning a vocation to the priesthood, deacon or religious life, please contact one of one our parish priests or the Archdiocese of Omaha Office of Vocations.

Annointing of the Sick

Parish Pastoral Visits
If you or a family member is hospitalized or sick at home and wish to be visited by a priest, please call the parish office as hospitals are no longer allowed to notify us of admissions.

Only then can we make a pastoral visit, share prayer, and - if appropriate - celebrate the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick.

If you or a family member would like to be placed on our parish prayer chain, or would like to be remembered in our Prayers of the Faithful petitions during our Sunday liturgies please contact the parish office at (402) 333-8662
