Mission Statement

        The Altar Society of Immaculate Conception Church in Omaha Nebraska, under the patronage of the Blessed Virgin Mary as the Immaculate Conception whose feast is December 8th, wishes to serve God and His Church in the following specific ways.  We strive to promote true love of God and neighbor, encourage and support Catholic family life, display Christian Charity to one another, and foster reverence for the Holy House of God.  We will labor for its proper adornment, caring for the altar, with its fine linens, candles, and flowers, the sanctuary, both its sacristies, and the entire body of the church, enhancing an atmosphere for divine worship.  While working together in Christ, we will also provide various parish receptions and render assistance to the parish priests whenever necessary.

 

The Altar Society is open to any woman of the parish who wishes to participate in the carrying out of this mission.  There are several committees that work together in order to enhance an atmosphere worthy of “divine worship.”  Volunteers are always gladly welcomed to help perform various tasks on the following committees:


• Church Cleaning
• Sanctuary/Sacristy Cleaning
• Candles
• Church Bathrooms
• Linens
• Flower/Seasonal Décor
• Church Basement
• Parish Receptions
• Donut Sundays
• Funeral Luncheons

 

Meetings are held the last Sunday in the months of February, April, June, July, August, October, and December.  Dues for each member are $10 annually.  You may join at any time during the year, but an annual “drive” occurs each May before the election of new officers takes place at the meeting in June.

 

Come join us in our mission to serve our Lord through our acts of service!
