Archbishop, board, priests make assignment decisions

The announcement of new assignments for priests in the Archdiocese of Omaha is as much a part of the traditions of spring as gardening and graduation.

The announcement might mean a new pastor for some parishes, a new associate for others, the reappointment of a current pastor, a first assignment for a new priest or the retirement of another priest.

But how are those assignments determined? Who's involved in the decision-making? How long does it take?

Archbishop announces new priest assignments

Twelve archdiocesan priests soon will be serving as pastors of different parishes, according to the priest appointment listing released this week by the archdiocese.

New assignments also include changes at the Chancery, with Father Gregory Baxter stepping down as moderator of the curia and director of Propagation of the Faith effective Aug. 1. He will continue as pastor of St. Margaret Mary Parish in Omaha.

Hunger doesn't end with holidays; it's a year-round issue

Hunger doesn't take a vacation.

While people might think of the hungry during Thanksgiving and Christmas and make food or monetary donations to pantries, the need continues beyond the holidays, even during the summer.

That's why Catholic Charities of Omaha is asking parishes in Omaha and the surrounding communities to participate in its "Hunger Doesn't Take a Vacation" campaign.

Planting an extra row can benefit local food pantries

Now is the time people plant their gardens, and Catholic Charities of Omaha hopes that while gardening, people will remember the hungry.

Catholic Charities' food pantries at Juan Diego Center in South Omaha and St. Martin de Porres in North Omaha are trying their best to provide fresh fruits and vegetables to their clients.

But that's not always possible, especially during the winter and fall months.
