Office of Evangelization and Spiritual Formation

The Office of Evangelization supports, initiates, and develops opportunities to spread the Gospel at both the parish and diocesan level.

The Office of Spiritual Formation desires to see Catholic communities across the diocese become genuine schools of prayer, and thus help people develop vibrant interior prayer lives.

The primary goal of any effort is that souls may encounter Jesus Christ and experience living in relationship with Him. 


The mission of the Office of Evangelization and Spiritual Formation is first to spread the Gospel to all people, both the unbaptized and baptized, so that they may come to an encounter with Christ, and second to support the efforts and spiritual life of the evangelized by teaching people to pray more effectively and empowering them to share their faith, as the greatest opportunity for evangelization and discipleship happens in personal one-on-one relationships.

Some areas impacted through the efforts of these offices include: adult faith formation, evangelization efforts, bible studies, prayer and leadership training, and retreats. For more information please call 402-473-0615.



Matt Simmons, Director of Evangelization & Spiritual Formation, will be doing a series of presentations this fall at JXXIII Diocesan Center in Dawson Hall from 6:30-8:30pm. The suggested audience is for anyone who is involved in apostolic work, i.e., St. Vincent de Paul society, Catholic school teachers, Marriage Encounter, acolytes, CSS, etc.  The evenings are designed to help you manifest Jesus more fully as you serve the people of God.
