Our Patron Saint ~ Junipero Serra
Not only because of his place in American history as the founder of a chain of missions in Mexico and California, but also because of his life of priestly zeal and heroic virtue, Fray Junípero Serra, OFM, was chosen as the patron of our apostolate. This gifted Franciscan friar had occupied the Duns Scotus chair of philosophy in Mallorca, Spain, until he felt the call to commit himself further to the service of Christ as a missionary in the New World. Departing from Cadiz, Spain, in 1748, he made the perilous crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in a small ship, landing at Veracruz on the southern shore of the Gulf of Mexico. From there, he journeyed on foot to Mexico City, where tradition has it that he prayed at the church built over the famous site where the Virgin of Guadalupe appeared to St. Juan Diego in 1531.
The Serra Club of West Omaha is happy to announce our newest key partner - The Arch O Young Adults! We will help support their activities and efforts in deepening every young adult's relationship with Jesus, and in particular VENI. VENI occurs monthly and includes adoration followed by an after party.
Praying for you both! Say hi to Matthew Pohlman for us! (Praying for him too!)Seminarian Michael Figura, studying at the North American College in Rome, caught up with Father Taylor Leffler in St. Peter's Square in Rome this afternoon! Father Leffler is leading a pilgrimage across Italy for some of his parishioners at St. Wenceslaus in Omaha. Looks like a picture-perfect day! God bless our wonderful priests and seminarians!
