Meet Rev. Marisa Thompson
My family and I came to Omaha by way of central North Carolina this summer. My husband, Joe, is a native North Carolinian and we have enjoyed getting to know his home over the past three years. Prior to that, we were in my stomping grounds, the great Pacific Northwest! This means that our children love BBQ AND tofu, sweet tea AND sushi – and that we have been teaching them to yell “Go Heels” and “Go Ducks” since they were in the womb! We look forward to adding “Go Huskers” to their repertoire. I served in a traditional parish setting in NC and as a college chaplain (and university administrator) in Oregon. In addition to spending time with my family and enjoying my vocation, I like to coach soccer, read mysteries, and watch college football.
I am excited to be a part of the Diocese of Nebraska and to serve with the All Saints community. The future is bright at All Saints! I have already met a number of wonderful people, in the Omaha-area and hope to build some strong relationships. To those I have met, thank you for the great welcome. To those I do not yet know, please say hi!
