Dear St. Patrick Parish School Family,
May the peace of Christ be with you all! My name is Fr. Brian Wirth and I am one of the newly ordained priests of the Diocese of Lincoln. I cannot tell you how privileged and excited I am to have the opportunity of being in the classroom teaching your children in our Diocesan Catholic School. Although we are facing some unique challenges this year, I am looking forward to my time at St. Pats and meeting all of our great students and families. Please know of my prayers for a safe, healthy, and successful school year both academically and spiritually.
I am originally from Nebraska City where I grew up on a 5th generation family farm. I have one older brother who farms with my dad and my mom works at St. Mary’s Hospital. Before my Ordination, I attended Lourdes Central Catholic in Nebraska City, attended & graduated from UNL and went to St. Gregory the Great Seminary for two years followed by an additional four years at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Maryland.
The highlight of my summer was definitely my Ordination to the Priesthood and First Mass. Thankfully, COVID did not delay the event and it was truly an awesome weekend for my family, friends, and myself.
