Archbishop Bergan School to open kindergarten this fall

St. Patrick Church and Archbishop Bergan Catholic School announced the opening of Archbishop Bergan School's kindergarten for the 2007-2008 school year. The kindergarten is the first step in a master plan that will ultimately result in the building of a K-5 elementary school.

"I am convinced that this new school will renew our parish, will strengthen the faith life of our families and provide our children with a high quality elementary education with 'Catholic' as the key integrating force," said Father Owen Korte, president of Archbishop Bergan Catholic schools.

Our veterans deserve the best treatment possible

At the beginning of Lent, we heard more devastating news reports about our wounded coming back from Iraq. Chilling details came out on the disgraceful way our veterans, returning with serious injuries, have been treated because of failures rooted in the Pentagon.

The cry in the country is that we must "support the troops." People who oppose this chosen war have been unjustly blasted as being unpatriotic.

Recent attacks on religion by aggressive atheists: But science alone cannot answer our deepest questions

Last year Oxford professor Richard Dawkins published a book titled "The God Delusion." In it he maintains that religion has no place in science, and in fact, has hampered the development of science and human progress. He maintains that God and religion are delusions of people who need myths and fantasies to find meaning and support for their lives.

St. Robert Bellarmine School focuses on sports

Marian sociology project creates student authors

Chelsea Friel, a senior at Marian High School in Omaha, reads the book she wrote as part of a sociology class project to Sophie Provost, a kindergartner at St. Vincent de Paul School, who was the main character in the book. Each student in Tom Baker's sociology class wrote and designed storybooks casting local kindergarten students as the main characters. The kindergartners visit foreign lands and in the end, play the part of the story's hero. "The books are a creative and unique way for kindergartners to learn more about other cultures," Baker said.
