PEN PAL PROGRAM
We would like to start a Pen-Pal Program for the families and elderly/homebound adults in our communities to let those that may not have family around and/or may not be able to see family as normal to know that we are thinking about them and praying for them.
Here's how it would work:
- A family would sign-up for more information & a pen-pal match via the sign-up genius link (https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A094DA9AA2DA5F49-catholic) or contacting Steph (email@example.com) a letter to the assigned elderly/homebound adult.
- The family would receive the necessary information to send an initial letter to the assigned elderly/homebound adult, including such information as family members, pets, favorite activities, questions for the adult to respond to (what are your favorite foods, what was school like for you, etc.)
- The family would mail the letter to the adult or email/drop it off at St. Patrick's Parish Office and Steph will mail it.
- Hopefully then letters will continue to be sent to and from the matched up families through this difficult time and even after this time.
**Families are able to sign up for more than one pen-pal match-up. Ex. each child in the family wants to send a letter to a pen-pal. However, to follow Safe Environment guidelines, parents must be included in the letter writing and noted as the letter sender - have the kids be a part of the letter and writing process.
Please feel free to share this with your students, families, and friends. And feel free to send any suggestions my way - ex. if you have someone in mind that would benefit from this program, please let me know as I will add them to our list to be matched up with a family.
Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!

Prayer Against the Coronavirus
Lord Jesus Christ, our Divine Physician, we ask you to guard and protect us from Corona virus COVID-19 and all serious illness. For all that have died from it, have mercy; for those that are ill now, bring healing. For those searching for a remedy, enlighten them; for medical helping the sick, strengthen and shield them. For those working to contain the spread, grant them success; for those afraid, grant peace. May your precious blood be our defense and salvation. By your grace, may you turn the evil of disease into moments of consolation and hope. May we always fear the contagion of sin more than any illness. We abandon ourselves to your infinite mercy. Amen. Pedro de la Cruz
WELCOMING YOU HOME
On behalf of all the parishioners, parish staff and priests I would like to welcome you to our parish website. St. Boniface parish in Stuart was founded in 1899, in 1910 the parishioners and pastor determined that an new and larger church was needed. Their fearlessness and dedication allowed them to build the magnificent church that we worship in today. The cornerstone was laid in May of 1911, and construction continued until completion.
We are blessed to celebrate over 100 years of worship in this beautiful church on the corner of 4th and Mains Streets in Stuart, NE.
As a church we have welcomed many, we have celebrated joy filled and milestone events such as Baptisms, First Communions, Confirmations, Graduations, Weddings, Anniversaries and even one or two First Masses of the newly ordained. It is also the place where we have brought our beloved dead, where we have gathered to pray in times of natural and national disasters. It is our home, and we welcome you to join us in prayer and worship.
Peace & Blessings,
Fr. Bernard Starman
