Catholic Voice takes first place

The Catholic Voice won a first place award for "Best Front Page" at the recent Catholic Media Convention in New Orleans.

Commenting on the newspaper's front pages from November and early December, the judge said: "There is a nice display of dominant artwork and headlines on each page and creative typography. The flow of headlines to promo items is subtle and there is a continuity that is easily recognized."

More than 300 attended the convention at the Marriott Hotel June 2-4. The awards banquet was held June 4.

Sisters' history of serving the unmet needs of society

The Notre Dame Sisters always have been known for helping meet unmet needs of society.

Early on it was through the education and care of Czech orphans in Fenton, Mo., and later they focused on serving the poor, aged, ill and abused.

Their ministry changed dramatically in the 1960s after the Second Vatican Council called women religious to refresh and renew their charisms, missions and way of life, said Notre Dame Sister Celeste Wobeter, provincial president.

Notre Dame Sisters mark 100 years in America, 90 in archdiocese

The Archdiocese of Omaha might be very different had the Notre Dame Sisters not made the archdiocese their home 90 years ago.

Notre Dame Sisters have served at numerous Catholic schools, colleges, universities and parishes, as well as hospitals and archdiocesan agencies and committees. They've also worked at shelters and in ministries to the poor, aging and abused.

Monsignor marks year of milestone events

HARTINGTON - Cedar County residents came out in force May 26 for an open house honoring a man who has been serving the residents of the Archdiocese of Omaha for 65 years.

Msgr. Cyril Werner, the honored guest who celebrated his 90th birthday in March, cheerfully greeted visitors, talking with them about family and friends.

The retired archdiocesan priest touched the lives of thousands of Northeast Nebraska residents, giving them counsel before weddings, anniversaries and baptisms, and comforting words after funerals.

Catholic faith is important to archdiocesan centenarians

Camilla Wemhoff and Servant of Mary Sister Germaine Burkhard have seen and experienced more than most.
