Students celebrate and learn faith at youth rally

Most families are crazy, Bob Perron, a Catholic humorist from Des Moines, Iowa said at an Oct. 18 youth rally in Omaha - but God teaches lessons even amid misbehavior.

Take his daughter Mackenzie.

When he told her as a little girl at Sunday Mass to stop riding her "pony" - the kneeler - he said, "They're going to put Jesus in the tabernacle." But after Communion, she hopped back on and shouted, "Don't worry, Jesus! I'll get you out of there!"

His audience of 300 seventh- and eighth-graders roared.

Sixth-graders learn to listen to God

Brother Damian Cayetano believes a commitment to promoting vocation awareness, such as the Oct. 23 Vocation Awareness Day in Omaha, is vital for the church.

"It's important for us [in the religious life] to give today's youth the tools necessary to hear God's voice," said the Benedictine from Christ the King Priory near Schuyler. "Each of us is blessed with a variety of talents to serve God."

Free clinic to serve Omaha's low-income families

Heart Ministry Center at 24th and Binney streets last month expanded its services to low-income families in North Omaha with the addition of on-site medical care - Porto Urgent Care Clinic.

Named in honor of the Dr. Anthony Porto family, the clinic offers dental care services, behavioral health services and urgent care. A nurse practitioner is on-site, and social workers and occupational therapists also are available.

The clinic also provides monthly services focused on health promotion and prevention.
