Support CUES

For more than a century, CUES Schools – Sacred Heart, All Saints, and Holy Name – have successfully passed on an excellent, faith-based education to thousands of students. The continued support of our alumni, school families, parishioners, and friends enable us to work together to prepare our youth to take their place in the world. Your gifts and prayers are essential as we continue serving these students and families.

Because of your generosity, nearly 600 CUES students thrive every day in a culture of love, kindness, and excellence. CUES Schools anchor their east Omaha neighborhoods, but we cannot keep them open without your support.

Sacred Heart School has been an important part of Mary’s family for generations. Will you give other families access to a faith-based education in the CUES School System with a gift?

From attending Sacred Heart School as a child to volunteering there as an adult, Mary Redding has spent her life in the community of east Omaha. 

Raised Catholic, Mary and her six brothers completed their elementary education at Sacred Heart. Mary’s children, grandchildren, and nieces and nephews also attended.


Family circumstances led Mary to adopt her great-granddaughter, Gabby, a Sacred Heart first grader, as an infant. Now, Gabby joins her family to receive a faith-based education at Sacred Heart.

Mary volunteers five days per week at Sacred Heart to give back to the school and community. She serves food in the cafeteria. From helping students with homework to filling in for an aid in a classroom, Mary enjoys making an impact in multiple ways.
