Two February meetings will focus on pornography

Focused on goals of awareness and education, the Archdiocese of Omaha Anti-Pornography Task Force will again take its message to clergy and educators at meetings early next year.

"Save the Date" notices were mailed to educators and clergy throughout the archdiocese for a Feb. 7 meeting in Norfolk and a Feb. 8 session in Omaha. Those groups were targeted for the Task Force's first anti-pornography workshops, held earlier this year.

Creighton students speak out on social justice

One summer in El Salvador inspired a Creighton University student to more involvement in social justice issues, she said last month at the annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice.

Jackie Arnason, a junior from Blaine, Minn., who spent last summer in the Central American country, said in a speech at the Columbus, Ga., event, that she was inspired by the late Archbishop Oscar Romero, who was assassinated in 1980 for speaking out against war and human rights violations.

Videos help answer questions about priesthood, vocations

In an age where social networking sites and video sites are every day attractions for many young people, the Archdiocese of Omaha is turning to a similar outlet to reach young men who might be considering a call to the priesthood.

Through a series of videos on the archdiocesan Web site, the Archdiocesan Vocations Office hopes to attract more men to the seminary, said Father Paul Hoesing, vocations director.

Holy Week pilgrimage results in Omaha woman's conversion

From deep within, Stephanie Prost said she felt God calling her. And she's struggled with the fear of accepting that call since high school.

But last year, she experienced a conversion that moved her to begin pursuing life as a religious sister of the Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

The 26-year-old Omaha resident said she left the church in high school for a life of partying and impure relationships before she went to Rome during Holy Week 2008.
