Family of Parishes Support Portal

Resources and information for Families of Parishes as they journey to become missional communities.

Journey of Faith

This portal will house the latest information and resources for Families of Parishes including information on the certifications and workshops that will help equip parishes leaders. This site will also be an access point for the Archdiocese of Omaha's forthcoming learning management system, powered by Brainier, which will help facilitate the certification process.

Archdiocesan Directory

A new online directory of the Archdiocese of Omaha is in the final stages of development. You will be able to find it here later in October.


In an effort for all parishes to become missional communities that build stronger relationships with Jesus Christ and outwardly share the faith with others, the Archdiocese of Omaha is offering certifications and workshops. These events are designed to support our parishes and are open to parish staff and lay people. Learn more about the certified positions and upcoming workshops below.
