Marriage: a lifetime commitment

By Charlie Wieser                       

            As a Catholic, I believe marriage is based on the Old Testament idea of covenant, in which God loves beyond reason his people, and the best marriage is based on the New Testament idea of sacrament because it's a sign of God's love.

Volunteer: program is way to build faith

For Virginia Higgins of St. Cecilia Parish in Omaha, lay ministry is built on a firm foundation of personal faith.

And that's why she's been involved in the F.A.I.T.H. program for volunteer lay ministers since the first classes were offered in January 2005.

Developed through the Office of Lay Ministry Formation in cooperation with several church agencies and offered through Creighton University, F.A.I.T.H. offers weekly classes targeting a number of aspects of volunteer lay ministry.
