Welcome to the Catholic Homeschool Association of Omaha. We are an organization of homeschooling families who exist first and foremost to promote unity and support around the sacraments of the Church, particularly the Eucharist. In addition to our monthly Mass, the group offers four quarterly family meetings each year, and a variety of social and spiritual opportunities for parents and children. United in Christ and our sharing of the Eucharist, it is our mission to minister to homeschooling families and those who wish to explore this option. We believe that in renewing the family, we contribute to the “new evangelization” spoken of so often by Pope John Paul II.

So God blessed the seventh day and make it holy, because on it He rested from all the work He had done in creation” (2:2-3).
