Masses honor community members

In the Archdiocese of Omaha, three special Masses - the Red, White and Blue - are held each year to honor members of the community.

The Red Mass honors lawyers and judges; the White Mass recognizes members of the medical profession; and the Blue Mass honors police, fire fighters and rescue personnel.

The Blue Mass took place Oct. 1 at St. Peter Church in Omaha. Archbishop Elden Francis Curtiss presided at the 7 p.m. Mass.

Irish festival to benefit local charities

Irish stew and entertainment will be the highlight of this year's annual Hooley fund-raising dinner Oct. 5 from 4 to 8 p.m. at St. Patrick Church in Omaha.

The Irish celebration is sponsored by Omaha's Mother Catherine McAuley Division of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians, a group of Irish Catholic women whose primary purpose is to raise funds for charities while honoring their Irish identity, history, culture and faith.

Agencies combine to better serve Omaha community

Catholic Charities, one of Nebraska's largest social service organizations dedicated to serving, empowering and advocating for people in need, and the Christ Child Society, devoted to strengthening the lives of youth, elderly and families, signed an agreement Sept. 29 to combine their services.

Together, the two agencies have more than 185 years of experience serving the Omaha community.

Couple finds grace in stopping contraception

When Kevin and Cindy Engelkamp think of their seven children, it's impossible for them to picture their life without them.

But when they married almost 29 years ago, neither envisioned a large family.

In fact, Kevin didn't want children.

"For the first five years of our marriage, I proudly said I would never have any kids," Kevin, 51, told the Catholic Voice.

But things changed when Cindy told him she was pregnant with their son, Kevin Jr.

"I was very excited," Kevin said.

Respect Life is focus of issue

October is Respect Life Month, and "Hope and Trust in Life" is the theme for 2008, a theme centered around Pope Benedict XVI's visit to the United States in April.

Several articles in the Oct. 3 issue of the Catholic Voice take a look at life-related issues, including a report on the predictions of Pope Paul VI in his 1968 paper on contraception.

"Humanae Vitae" was more than an encyclical on birth control.
