Parishioners display talent in musical 'Oliver'

Father Al Salanitro found a creative way to unite local parishes and showcase God-given talents: Through community theater.

For the first time, Catholics from several parishes in the Omaha area put on a summer musical.

This year's production of 'Oliver,' a British musical loosely based on "Oliver Twist" by Charles Dickens, featured parishioners of all ages from 12 different parishes.

The musical ran July 25-29 at Daniel J. Gross Catholic High School, 7700 S. 43rd St., in Bellevue.

Chancellor: Archbishop taking a stand for marriage

It was a matter of taking a stand for marriage and for what the Catholic Church believes about marriage.

That's how Father Joseph Taphorn, chancellor of the Archdiocese of Omaha, describes Archbishop Elden Francis Curtiss' decision last month to disassociate the archdiocese from the Center for Marriage and Family at Creighton University.

The archbishop was responding to an article in the June issue of U.S. Catholic magazine written by Dr. Michael G. Lawler, director of the Center for Marriage and Family, and Gail S. Risch, an ethics instructor at Creighton.
