Oneness of Catholic Church reaffirmed

VATICAN CITY - The Vatican's doctrinal congregation reaffirmed that the Catholic Church is the one, true church, even if elements of truth can be found in separated churches and communities.

Touching an ecumenical sore point, the document said some of the separated Christian communities, such as Protestant communities, should not properly be called "churches" according to Catholic doctrine because of major differences over the ordained priesthood and the Eucharist.

BRAMAN MORTUARY

Cowpokes and Bibles

The grounds of St. Vincent de Paul Church in Omaha turned into a western ranch last month when more than 280 children attended Vacation Bible School June 18-22.

The children, ages preschool to sixth grade, gathered for a week of fun to learn about God and his mission for them. Using the program, Avalanche Ranch, the youngsters experienced God in song, Bible adventures and crafts.

The children were divided into 18 crews that rotated throughout the morning to different stations, including Cowpoke Crafts and Chuck Wagon Chow.

Sister O'Donnell remains busy despite retirement

While it was only 8 a.m. when Sister Marie Patrice O'Donnell, OP, opened the front door of her home and convent near St. Cecilia Cathedral in Omaha, her computer was glowing in the background.

She had already spent time in the in-home chapel, gone to 7 a.m. Mass, and walked on the treadmill for a half hour while watching last fall's Florida State and Clemson football game.

Teenager inspired many in her short life

Cady Reynolds' picture says it all: Sparkling eyes and a bright smile to mirror her personality.

Cady's family and friends, who remember her as a beautiful and carefree young woman, now mourn the loss of a teenager who once had a future as bright as her smile.

The 16-year-old sophomore at Marian High School in Omaha died May 31 after her compact car was hit by a Sport Utility Vehicle.

"I think we all deal with Cady's death differently," said Rob Reynolds, her father. "You go day by day."

Friends speak of her kindness and positive energy

To her family she was known as Cady, but her friends called her "Catty."

Those friends recalled Cady Reynolds' loyalty and kind personality, saying they'll miss the Marian High School sophomore's presence and smile.

On the night of her death, nearly 125 high school students from Marian, Creighton Prep, V.J. and Angela Skutt Catholic High School and Westside High School gathered at the corner of 132nd and Center streets - the site of the car accident that killed Cady - to hold a candlelight vigil and pray for her.
