This committee monitors and maintains the physical condition and operation of the campus in order to provide a clean, practical, comfortable and safe environment. The committee conducts a tour of the facilities and equipment each spring, develops a priority list for maintenance and makes budget recommendations.
A meeting for Building & Grounds, Lawn Crew Captains and interested new members will be Saturday, April 1. The Lawn Crew meeting will start at 9 am and the Building and Grounds Walk-Through will start at 9:30 am. Both meetings will start in the Parish Rectory break room.
Sixteen cleaning teams keep our beautiful church tidy and prepared to celebrate the Holy Mass. This is a great way to meet other parishioners and develop friendships. Each team cleans about 4 times a year on Friday or Saturday mornings. Friday Teams clean for about an hour once every three or four months. We need help on Fridays! If you can help, call the Parish Office at 402-572-0499. Friday Teams need more Church Cleaners!

Parish grounds have been beautified by the hard work of our parishioner gardeners who are responsible for planting and nurturing flower beds by rotating the watering duties one week at a time during the growing season. Once a month, the entire group gathers to fertilize, plant, trim and work on special projects. Gardeners also hold an annual Plant Sale in May. Proceeds go toward purchasing new plantings and garden supplies.

Our church’s sanctuary space holds many varieties of plants that add to the living environment of the church. If you have a green thumb and like working with plants, please call. Volunteers are needed to help tend to these plants a couple of times a week.
Parishioners take great pride in the appearance of the parish grounds, which they mow and trim every Saturday morning from April through October. There are four crews and each works once a month. The parish supplies the equipment. Our lawn crews always can use more participants. All lawn crew members work this Saturday, April 29.
