Welcome to St. Gianna Women's Homes

We assist women and their families fleeing domestic violence or who are being coerced into having an abortion. Each family is provided a safe and secure environment to deal with the trauma caused by the abuse, become self-sufficient and learn to develop healthy relationships in the future.

    St. Gianna Women's Homes

    In the Spring of 2011, we opened on a new 24 apartment unit which is sorely needed for victims of domestic violence and those escaping abortion. This is in addition to the existing three bedroom home we already have. Collectively, this program is called St. Gianna Women’s Homes. We now have the capability to provide a safe place for over 100 women and children. Though it will serve women of all faiths in the Diocese of Lincoln, St. Gianna Women’s Homes will not make any recommendations or referrals contrary to the Catholic faith and is staffed by the Marian Sisters.

Not Your Typical Valentine

Although almost 36 million boxes of chocolate are sold for Valentine’s Day every year, you don’t need to buy a box of chocolates to spread love this February 14. Forget spending a fortune on roses while trying to make a romantic gesture. Focus on those people who need love the most. Try paying it forward this week or getting in touch with long-lost friends and family.

Pay it forward— Celebrate Valentine’s Day by committing a random act of kindness this week. Do something nice and thoughtful, even if it’s little, for a stranger. Perhaps try paying for the next customer in line at a coffee shop, or send inspiring Valentine’s Day cards to complete strangers from the white pages. Maybe it’s shoveling snow from a neighbor’s sidewalk. Whatever it is, do it with love.

Send a card to a long-lost friend— It is normal to have some great friends get lost in the shuffle of life after high school, college, marriage, kids… it’s hard to keep up with it all. Although you may not have talked to them in years, track down an old friend’s current address and send them a cute Valentine’s Day card. Tell them how much those memories mean to you.

Call your family members— Although we tend to pay attention to our sweethearts for Valentine’s Day, we often neglect the other people we love in our life, too. Call your parents, brother, sister, or perhaps a second cousin. Whoever it is, reach out and tell them how much they mean to you.

  • Area Catholic choirs will perform Advent and Christmas songs of the season in the beautiful setting of St. Thomas Aquinas Church (the Newman Center) on the campus of UNL. Visit our calendar of event page for more information and to print out a ticket order form.
