About Us:


The first Altar Society of St. Joseph’s Parish was established in 1919 with all women automatically becoming members. Mrs. John Gleeson was the first president and Mary Peterson Higgins was the first secretary. Doing their best to raise money, the ladies had lawn socials; bake sales, raffles, bazaars and dances.


The Society is affiliated with the Omaha Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women and a member of the Rural Northeast Deanery.
