PPC Geoff Thiele


Just before getting married to Lorraine, at St. Cecilia’s Cathedral 34 years ago, I was Baptized and Confirmed in the Catholic church. Since that time, our children, Jennifer and Geoffrey, both graduated from St. Cecilia’s Grade School. Over the years, I have been privileged to serve the Parish community in many different capacities; Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, Parish Pastoral Council (2 terms), Grade School Board of Education (2 terms, President for 3 years), Educational Endowment Board (current), coach of numerous sports teams, and as a contributing scientist to the Science Fair. I have also been involved in various programs of the Archdiocese of Omaha; Archdiocesan School Board (2 terms, President for 3 years), Archdiocese Committee for Development, and the Archdiocese Urban Regional Board for Education. These interactions enable me to not only share my faith, but to try and find ways for others to share theirs. The St. Cecilia community is unique and very special to us, as it is to many of you. Distributing the body and blood of Christ as an EME to this community is an amazing and fulfilling experience. In my spare time I enjoy; spending time with my two children and my grandson, watching all sports, and working on my house and yard.
