for the Protect Women & Children Ballot Initiative

Dearest St. Joseph, at the word of an angel, you lovingly took Mary into your home. As God’s humble servant, you guided the Holy Family on the road to Bethlehem, welcomed Jesus as your own son in the shelter of a manger, and fled far from your homeland for the safety of both Mother and Child.

We praise God that as their faithful protector, you never hesitated to sacrifice for those entrusted to you. May your example inspire us also to welcome, cherish, and safeguard God’s most precious gift of life.

Help us to faithfully commit ourselves to the service and defense of human life —especially where it is vulnerable or threatened. Obtain For us the grace to do the will of God in all things.

Diaper Drive 2023

Eleven parishes held diaper drives in the month of October 2023 (Pro-Life Month). Those parishes are: Our Lady of Lourdes, Mary Our Queen, St. Bernadette, St. Cecilia, St. Francis Borgia, St. Leo, St. James, St. Mary-Bellevue, St. Peter, St. Robert, and St. Stephen the Martyr.

in 2023, the Omaha Urban Deanery of the Council of Catholic Women collected over 25,000 diapers and almost $5,000 dollars for the purchase of future diapers.

Diapers purchased with the 2022 funds have been delivered to Bethany Christian Services, Bethlehem House, Catholic Charities, EPS, Gabriel’s Corner, SVDP, and Christ Child Society Omaha, Women’s Care Center in Omaha.

Bethlehem House Donation

Omaha Urban Deanery dropped off 21 packages of diapers in August at Bethlehem House in Omaha. This is the 3rd diaper delivery this summer made possible with the funds collected during our 1st Annual Diaper Drive. We have also delivered diapers to EPS and Mater Filius in Omaha.

Thank you Omaha affiliate parishes for your support!
