Mollner Excited to Be Back in the Area
This July, students, faculty and staff welcomed our new chaplain, Fr. Jeff Mollner. Fr. Jeff jumped right into his chaplain duties assisting as a moderator for the Marianist LIFE summer program. The week-long national program is designed to develop the LIFE Core Team members by creating opportunities to share faith, learn from each other, and to become instruments of peace. Students and moderators connect with LIFE teams across the United States to share faith and ideas to assist in creating community. Other activities included prayer services, reflection, sacraments and service work.
Fr. Jeff said, “I am very excited to be back in South Omaha and back in high school ministry.”
Mollner Creates Opportunities
In addition to offering a weekly Wednesday morning Mass for all Gross Catholic students and families, Fr. Jeff has created opportunities for students and families to grow in their faith. He presided over our annual Grandparents Day Mass in September as well as several other Masses this year. Every Friday, Fr. Jeff spends time in our building and is available to meet with students. He also enjoys praying with various teams and clubs and being able to cheer on the Cougars.
Fr. Mollner’s Background

About Gross Catholic
Gross Catholic, a co-educational, college preparatory high school, began its proud heritage of academic excellence rooted in the Marianist tradition in 1968. We consider ourselves one of the best Catholic schools in Omaha, Bellevue, and Papillion. The school motto Dux Esto (“Be a Leader”) is at the core of its extraordinary mission, innovative spirit, and fundamental values. The school offers a challenging environment and outstanding quality of life, both in academics and co-curricular activities, with a strong focus on STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) education. The spirit of Christian service and giving back is part of everything the school does. Gross Catholic’s top-tier status is reflected in its talented faculty, staff, and coaches who take great pride in seeing virtually every graduate head to college, often to the most prestigious domestic and international universities and service academies. Together with families and alumni, Gross Catholic forges relationships for a lifetime, helping to ready the next generation to be exemplary, principled leaders of the world.
