History of St. Michael Catholic School/Parish

History of St. Michael Catholic Church/School

St. Michael Parish has had a Catholic presence on the southeast edge of Lincoln, for 108 years.  Founded in the unincorporated village of Cheney in 1909, St. Michael Parish has had three churches; the first built in 1909, the second, constructed in 1987, and the current worship space, which is located in our school, the Commons Area. 

In 2011, St. Michael Parish relocated one mile west and south from Cheney NE, to the very southeast corner of Lincoln, Nebraska.  That year too, St. Michael Catholic School began operations as the newest of the eleven Catholic elementary schools in the Diocese of Lincoln. We began our educational ministry with 135 students Kindergarten through Sixth grade.   We are currently serving 298 students and 144 families Kindergarten through Eighth grade.  

As we continue to grow in faith, knowledge and service, our desire is to carry on our tradition as that the little church and school with the big heart to all who encounter us. 

We hope that you will join us for worship, ministry, outreach, and educational opportunities.  Thank you for visiting St. Michael Parish and School.
