The Sacrament of Holy Orders continues the mission of Jesus Christ entrusting his leadership of the Catholic Church by ordinations of bishops, priests, and deacons. The apostles were given a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit by Jesus Christ that continues through the ordination of bishops.
Priests are called to share in the apostolic mission of Jesus Christ by being ordained as coworkers with the bishops in the care of God's people. At St. Vincent de Paul, we have two priests, our Pastor, Fr. Dan Kampschneider, and our Associate Pastor, Fr. Walter Jong-A-Kiem. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a priest, contact Fr. Paul Hoesing, Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Omaha, or visit the Vocations web page.
Deacons share in the mission of Jesus Christ in assisting the bishops and priests in their service and ministry to God 's people. St. Vincent de Paul is blessed to have four deacons who serve our parish. Rev. Mr. Jay Reilly, Rev. Mr. Richard Jizba, Rev. Mr. Gary Hennessey and Rev. Mr. Bill Barnes.
