Induction Mass and Reception (OPEN TO PUBLIC)

August 29, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a very special Induction Mass and Reception (with heavy hors d’oeuvres) at St. Patrick Catholic Church of Gretna (confirmed; Father Baxter will be on vacation).

Rosary for Vocations at 5:30 p.m.

Mass with music by Grace Giebler at 6:00 p.m.

  • Archbishop George Lucas will celebrate the Mass, assisted by Father Frank Baumert, Chaplain, and Father Scott Schilmoeller, new Vocations Director of the Archdiocese of Omaha.
  • Immediately following the homily, new member inductees will approach the altar to profess their commitment to supporting the work of increasing vocations in the Archdiocese of Omaha.

Reception in Parish Center following Mass.  Our speaker is Father Scott Schilmoeller.

Father Scott will share his vocation story, provide an update on vocations in the Archdiocese and his goals, as well as discuss the importance of our vocations work in support of the Vocations Office, particularly during a time when we are experiencing a crisis of faith in our current western culture. New member inductees, milestone anniversaries, and the Serran of the Year will be recognized. New members are encouraged to invite their spouses, family members and guests to attend.


The Rosary, Mass, and Reception are all open to the public.  There is no cost to attend this special event.  All members (except for the new member inductees) will be asked to bring an hors d’oeuvre of your choice to St. Patrick Catholic Church in Gretna NO LATER THAN 5:30 PM so we have time to prepare prior to the 5:30 PM Rosary.  Please RSVP up here if you plan to attend:

We need several Serra volunteers to help before, during, and after the event.  Sign up here to volunteer:
