Planning for growth
As Omaha continues to develop, it is expected that the Omaha diocese will see the number of Catholics continue to grow in the Omaha area as it has historically. This development and growth is resulting in St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church seeing an increase in parishioners. The parish growth over the years has caused the existing campus to be inadequate for parish needs. The worship space is too small, the number of meeting rooms and offices is insufficient for the growing staff and parish ministries, and the support spaces are inefficient. To adequately serve the community, it was deemed necessary to formulate a design solution to fulfill parish needs.
St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church
The new 16 acres to be acquired by St. Wenceslaus is located directly east of the existing property. The new site is occupied by the building addition, entry courtyard, parking, and a soccer field. The new parking will wrap around the new church, in order to minimize the distance between the church and parking, and can accommodate 500 cars.
