  • I am interested in Baptism in the Catholic Church. How do I go about this?

    The Sacrament of Baptism becomes the basis of our Christian life, the gateway to life in the Holy Spirit, and the door which allows  us to experience the other sacraments of the church. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God. By being baptized, we become members of the Catholic Church and our parish family.  

    Children are normally baptized within a few months after birth. Baptisms are held for registered members of the parish the second and third Sunday of each month, and a short series of classes in preparation for baptism are required. To register for the classes, contact the parish office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (402) 496-7988, ext. 230.

    For more information on the requirements for baptism for children, please download our Baptismal Guidelines.

  • I am interested in getting married in the Catholic Church...How do I go about this?

    The Sacrament of Marriage is a covenant which God establishes between a man and a woman for a partnership of their whole lives. Through their marriage, they provide what is good for their relationship and open themselves to the procreation and education of children. This marriage bond is to help one another to attain holiness in their married life and forming their children in the Christian life.

    At St. Vincent de Paul, there is an extensive process for marriage preparation.  Please contact the parish six months in advance at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (402) 496-7988. At least one member of the couple wishing to be married at St. Vincent de Paul or their family must be registered in the parish for three months prior to securing a wedding date.

    Please be sure to secure a wedding date with St. Vincent de Paul Church before reserving a reception hall.

  • I was married by a judge or a minister. How do I have my marriage blessed in the Church?

    Catholics are required by Church Law to be married in the Catholic Church.    If you were married by a judge or a minister (without any dispensation of the Church granted) you are unable to receive the Sacraments until your marriage has been blessed in the Church.

    We invite you to contact a priest so you may receive the nourishing grace of the sacraments again.

    Please contact Fr. Dan ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) or Fr. Sund ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) to speak further.
