We Remember

Please join the Marian community in prayer as we remember our departed loved ones. Alumnae, family members of alumnae, faculty and staff, and Servants of Mary are added to our monthly list of deceased when we receive notification. To include your loved one on our memorial list, please contact Chris Vacanti at cvacanti@omahamarian.org.
