Schools celebrate Catholic Schools Week

Catholic schools across the country are celebrating Catholic Schools Week this week, Jan. 31 through Feb. 6.

The theme for 2010's Catholic Schools Week is "Catholic Schools - Dividends for Life."

In the Archdiocese of Omaha, students are marking the week-long celebration with dress-up days, litugies and other activities, and eighth-graders in Omaha will gather Feb. 4 for the annual Eighth Grade Mass at St. Cecilia Cathedral in Omaha.

Local church responds to Haitian needs

The Jan. 12 earthquake in Haiti might have been thousands of miles away from the Archdiocese of Omaha, but local response shows the quake and the people left in the wake of its destruction are felt in the hearts of local people.

Archbishop George J. Lucas mobilized the Archdiocese of Omaha in Haiti relief efforts, asking all pastors in the archdiocese to take up a second collection at Masses Jan. 16-17 to assist the work of Catholic Relief Services (CRS) in Haiti.

Letter emphasizes value of anti-pornography efforts

Members of the Archdiocese of Omaha Anti-Pornography Task Force have used a variety of resources and spokespersons to take their message to the people.

Now, the Task Force is turning to Archbishop George J. Lucas.

Parish pastors throughout the archdiocese are being asked to distribute a letter from the archbishop and a brochure on pornography with parish bulletins the weekend of Jan. 30-31.

In his letter, the archbishop writes that the Internet, while making a positive difference, also is "often used for less desirable purposes."

Consecrated life gathering set for Feb. 6 in Fremont

Next month, consecrated men and women of the Archdiocese of Omaha will gather in Fremont to celebrate their unity and to meet with Archbishop George J. Lucas.

The annual World Day for Consecrated Life gathering will take place Feb. 6 at St. Patrick Church. Archbishop Lucas will speak at 2:30 p.m., and then he and members of consecrated life will participate in a question and answer session. The day concludes with Mass at 5:30 p.m. with the archbishop.
