  • PODS-Point of Distribution +

    A Word from our Pastor

     The health and safety of St. Wenceslaus community members is very important. One of the many things that can threaten health and safety is a Public Health Emergency such as a flu epidemic, contaminated water supply or an anthrax terroristic threat.  You can be confident that we have a plan in place to limit the impact of public health emergencies on our parishioners, students, teachers and their families.  Our goal is to protect the health of all during such an event.

     Members of the St. Wenceslaus Volunteer Nurse Ministry, Knights of Columbus, Catholic Daughters, Primetimers, Support Staff and the Director of Pastoral Ministry have been working with The Douglas County Health Department to create a plan to serve as a closed point of dispensing, or Closed POD, in the event of a formal emergency declaration by the governor.  Closed PODs are located on the organization’s property and will be operated by the Parish.  Trained volunteers will hand out water or medication (free) to parish and school families to keep you and family from getting sick.  Participation in the program involves pre-planning, training and coordination with local health departments.

     If you have any questions about the St. Wenceslaus Church and School’s plans to serve as a Closed POD, or if you are interested in volunteering to help with emergency preparedness planning, contact Mary Stieren at 402-697-7514 or one of the Command Team Leaders: Joan Mack and Mary Dobleman at This email address is being protected from spambots.
