St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish
My name is Fr. Franklin Anthony Dvorak. I was born on a farm near Dodge, NE. I attended St. Wenceslaus Catholic grade school in Dodge and attended The Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio for all twelve years of my Seminary training. I was ordained by the Apostolic Delegate Luigi Raimondi in Columbus, Ohio on March 21, 1970.
My parish assignments are as follows: Sacred Heart/St. Mary’s Parish in Norfolk, NE from 1970 to 1974; St. Patrick’s Parish in O’Neill, NE from 1974 to 1979; St. Mary’s Parish in Spencer, NE from 1979 to 1985; St. Michael’s in Coleridge NE and St. Mary’s in Belden, NE from 1985 to 1989; Holy Trinity Parish in Hartington, NE from 1989 to 1995; St. Wenceslaus in Omaha from 1995 to 2007; and since then at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.
I am involved in the Archdiocese Christians Encounter Christ movement and have been for over thirty-five years. I am on the Archdiocesan Priest’s Personnel Board and have served at different times for a total of over fifteen years. I am Dean of Suburban-north Deanery and have served as Dean in the various Deaneries in which I was stationed, which in turn means that I have also been on the Archdiocesan Priest’s Council and served on various committees during these times. I am on the Archdiocesan Deposit and Loan Committee and have served for over ten years. During my forty one plus years as a priest I have given many, many retreats to grade and high school students. I have served on the Archdiocesan Liturgy Committee, the Archdiocesan Young Adult Committee, on the Archdiocesan Stewardship Committee, as an Archdiocesan Consultor, and also for ten years on the Archdiocesan Natural Family Planning Committee.
I am a Chaplain for the Omaha Police Department and have been serving for the past fifteen years.
My parents are both deceased. I have a brother and two sisters. My brother is married with three married grown children. My older sister is a Notre Dame Sister, serving at St. Rose in Genoa, NE. My younger sister is married with one grown son and one deceased son.
