For Senior Parents – Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation – Tomorrow and Sunday

Congratulations to the senior parents and their sons! Just as a reminder, graduation events kick off this weekend with the Baccalaureate Mass tomorrow night, May 18 at 7:30 p.m. at St. John's Church on the campus of Creighton University. Because of space limitations, this Mass can accommodate only seniors and their parents. Seniors should sit with their parents and dress in Prep's formal dress code with a suit coat or jacket optional.

The graduation ceremony will be held in the Heider Center on Sunday, May 19 at 10 a.m. Seniors should arrive by 9:15 a.m. in formal dress code with cap and gown, and use the commons entrance. (For graduating students, a suit coat or jacket is not recommended because it gets bulky and warm under the graduation gown.) The Heider Center doors will open at 9 a.m., and carpooling is strongly encouraged as parking is limited.

Tickets were distributed with caps and gowns today. If your family will not use all allotted tickets, you may turn them in at the high school office or the Heider Center ticket window prior to the ceremony.

Prep Notes


Eight Seniors Named National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists

Congratulations to seniors Samuel Atkins, John Doran, Colin Duffy, Samuel Forrest, Christopher Lin, Matthew Muellner, Daniel Noon and Matthew Rowe on being named Semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship competition. This is a prestigious honor awarded to a select number of students across the country in recognition of their outstanding academic achievements.

“We are very proud that these eight seniors have been recognized for their efforts to excel academically,” said Head of School Jim Bopp. “Additionally, we are grateful for the wonderful teachers they have here at Prep and those they had before coming to us who helped them along the way. The value of making the most of an excellent education cannot be overstated and we are excited to have such outstanding representatives to applaud and look to as exemplars.”

According to the National Merit Scholarship Program site, approximately 1 percent of the 1.6 million students involved in the competition are named Semifinalists. Finalists will be named in February then a smaller group of those will be announced in the spring as scholarship recipients.

Hearing on Proposed New Business Near Prep

An individual is seeking to open a controversial adult entertainment club with daytime hours called the Candyland Bikini Bar at the southwest corner of 72nd and Blondo streets. Due to the nature of the business and its close proximity to Creighton Prep, St. Pius X / St. Leo School as well as businesses frequented by young people and families including Burger King, Dairy Queen and McDonald’s, the school communities of Prep and SPSL are strongly opposed to its opening.

A Nebraska Liquor Control Commission hearing on the application for a liquor license will be held in room 1510 of the Nebraska State Capitol building in Lincoln on Wednesday, October 10 beginning at 9:30 a.m. If you would like to attend the hearing, consider driving yourself or joining a carpool. For information on carpools and a bus that will leave at 8:15 a.m. from the parking lot just east of St. Pius X / St. Leo School and to sign up, click HERE. Please contact Becky App at with any questions at Beckyapp24@gmail.com.

If you cannot attend that day and would like to express your opinion on the matter in advance of the hearing, you can submit a protest email opposing a liquor license for Candyland Bikini Bar located at 7215 Blondo St. Omaha, NE 68134 by sending it to Senator Theresa Thibodeau (District 6)* at tthibodeau@leg.ne.gov. Senator Thibodeau has offered to submit citizen emails into evidence at the hearing.

Concerns related to crime and safety, the concentration of children in the area, parking and traffic, economic and other impacts for surrounding businesses and property values, etc. could be compelling additions to a protest email.

*The Catholic Church is non-partisan and does not endorse nor oppose particular candidates for public office. The Catholic Church does encourage Catholics to communicate the values of our faith in the public square and to our elected officials.
