  1. FYI… St Philip Neri-Blessed Sacrament Parish is at 8200 N 30 St … not 8201


  2. You missed Immanuel Swedish Lutheran Church. Formed in 1868 and eventually built a church at 19th & Cass where it existed for over 50 years. In 1936 it merged with a spinoff in Western Omaha called Zion Lutheran at 36th and Lafayette and became Augustana Lutheran. That’s where my parents were married and my sister was baptized. After a fire it was replaced by the current day Augustana at 38th and Lafayette. That’s where I was baptized.
