First Saturday Stephen Center Dinner

12:00am - 8:00pm


We Need Your Help!




Please call Irene at 402-637-5055 with questions and see below for details:


As many of you know, OLL-St. Adalbert’s has a ministry to the Stephen Center, a shelter for the homeless and those in need. We provide gifts at Christmas, have a Walk for the Homeless along with other fundraisers, help fill their pantry and prepare and serve a monthly meal - always the first Saturday of the month. This ministry was begun in October 1986. There have been so many wonderful volunteers and we are so grateful for each and everyone who has ever helped. Currently, the same people have been baking chicken for years. Two of our “regulars” are nearing 90 years of age!

This invitation is to ask you to consider being a part of the meal ministry!


1. A sign up sheet is put up at the back of OLL’s main door one week before the meal. Online sign up is always available. This lists the jobs that need to be done for each month.


2. You will get a call Wed or Thurs to confirm your participation. If you need to get ahold of Irene, her number is 402-637-5055.


3. Everything except the chicken can be dropped off at the church office any time during the week before the meal.


4. On the first Saturday of the month, you can deliver the food yourself to the center OR it can be picked up by a delivery driver. The food needs to be ready by 3-3:30 pm. Other times can be arranged.


COOKS: We always prepare and serve barbecue chicken pieces. This is done in your home. How much to make is up to you, the Holy Spirit and your budget. We serve approximately 170. A portion is 2 pieces (ie leg and thigh) or 1 breast. Buy the chicken, season it and bake it as you would for your family, put some BBQ sauce on it. EASY, PEASEY!! If you need pans, these can be provided.


FRESH FRUIT: Purchase fresh fruit, any kind is fine. If you can chop it up (ie, melons) that’s great but if you can’t, that’s ok too, as we have others who can. At meal time, fruit is served in individual portions or as a whole fruit, such as an orange, apple or banana.


SALAD: Any kind of greens is welcomed for salad along with any other salad veggies. We also need salad dressing. Ranch is the favorite along with Italian and French.


BAKED POTATOES: A total of 60 lbs is needed. Any amount is welcomed. The potatoes need to be washed and wrapped in foil. You can donate them directly washed and wrapped or choose to bake them at home. We also like to serve sour cream with these. If you only want to donate potatoes and/or sour cream, that’s fine too just let me know before Thursday of the week we are cooking.


SERVERS: No more than 5 are needed. We never mean to turn away volunteers, but beyond this number makes for crowded conditions and there aren’t enough tasks. Teens are welcomed as well as pre-teens but they are not allowed to handle the hot stuff. Please be at the Center by 4:45 pm and plan to finish about 6:30 pm. Note in the comments if teens/pre-teens will be serving.


DELIVERY DRIVER: Will pick up food and deliver it to the Center. Usually this takes about 30-60 minutes and needs to be to the Center by 4 pm in case it needs to be warmed.


MISCELLANEOUS NOTES: The goal is to recruit more individuals in order to give the current team time off. It is not the expectation that you sign up for the whole year. Maybe you can only bake chicken twice a year. Maybe you can purchase chicken but can’t bake it or maybe you could bake chicken but can’t buy it. We are flexible. This is God’s meal and He makes it happen!

Holy Hour For Priests & Vocations

7:00pm - 8:00pm


April 7, 2022: Fr Mike Eckley
May 12, 2022: Fr Thomas Leitner
June 9, 2022: Fr Andrew Roza

Pray for Priests and vocations before our Eucharistic Lord, receive
benediction, and hear from our Priests about their vocational journeys.

“Pray much for priests because we need holy priests. The holier the priests are, the more holy we religious will be. Then too, the more holy families who are longing for God. If we have holy families we will have many holy vocations.”

-St Teresa of Calcutta
