Churches in Nebraska and other locations. More coming soon!
Saint Joseph’s Church in Geneva, Nebraska is a new modern structure built in 1996-97 to replace the decades-old former church building on the same site.
The modern structure of St. Wenceslaus Church in Milligan, dedicated in 1980, is a continuation of a long Catholic tradition in the area that started with the building of one of the first Czech Catholic Churches in Nebraska between 1874 and 1876.
The picturesque St. Wenceslaus Church sits in a lot protected by pine trees on the north side of the historic Czech-enclave of Wilber, Nebraska. The parish participates in community activities including the 60th annual Czech Festival (August 6-8, 2021). The parish held fundraisers during the festival selling fresh-baked kolaches and a pancake breakfast on Sunday morning. Read more about the festival at nebraskaczechsofwilber.com
A drive along State Highway 74 in southwestern Saline County will lead to one of the early Czech-Catholic churches built in Nebraska. The white-clapboard, Gothic-Revival structure has been a bastion of Catholicism in Tobias for over 100 years and is a historical and sacred space.
