Campus to serve addicts of all income levels

The dream of one man is finally becoming a reality.

Five years ago, Bob Soener of Omaha encouraged Catholic Charities to build an addition to its Campus for Hope facilities that would allow the organization to serve not just the poor, but all people addicted to drugs and alcohol.

The first steps toward that addition took place at a groundbreaking ceremony Sept. 15 at Campus for Hope, 1490 N. 16th St. in Omaha. Building is expected to take place this fall with the goal of opening next year.

Gathering brings together women for support and education

COLUMBUS - For the past 85 years, women of the archdiocese have been gathering at the annual convention of the Omaha Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women (OACCW) to celebrate their faith.

This year's convention was held on a Saturday - Sept. 12 - instead of the usual Monday, as a way to draw more women.

"We just wanted to see if we could get some of the women who are working and the younger women more involved by holding it on a Saturday," said Mary Lee Konz, 2008-09 OACCW president.

Working with the deaf for 42 years

Sister Rita Marie Pickhinke, RSM, has many stories to tell.

From the man with no knowledge of God, to the woman with no understanding of language, Sister Pickhinke brings learning and the Lord into the lives of those who live in a soundless world.

"You don't think about the deaf not having religion but it's a different world," Sister Pickhinke said. "In many parts of the world and in our country, the deaf people are still very much hidden."

Archbishop and couples reflect on marriage

Archbishop George J. Lucas reminded married couples at this year's Celebration of Marriage Masses that their love for each other over the years is a living sign and sacrament of how much God loves his people.

A total of 258 couples were honored Sept. 6 at St. Cecilia Cathedral in Omaha, and 142 couples gathered Sept. 13 at St. Mary Church in Norfolk. Celebrating five, 25, 40, 50, 55 and 60 or more years of marriage and renewing their vows during each Mass, the honored couples represent more than 18,000 years of married life.

Survey finds strong desire for school choice policies

More than eight of 10 likely voters in Nebraska would send their children to private schools, charter schools, or educate their children in a home school setting if they could, according to survey results released this week.
