Columbus parish anniversary to emphasize Polish heritage

Founded 100 years ago to serve Polish-speaking Catholics in Columbus, St. Anthony Parish will celebrate its legacy of faith and growth this month with Archbishop George J. Lucas.

The Sept. 28 centennial festivities will emphasize the parish's Polish heritage, including a Mass with the archbishop featuring Polish music, a dinner complete with cabbage rolls, Polish sausage and sweet bread, music and a dance. Several bands will play throughout the event.

Special spaces for prayer: Norfolk walk, Omaha garden

An outdoor path featuring 14 "Stations of the Light" that depict key moments from Christ's resurrection to Pentecost was dedicated Aug. 4 at Immaculata Monastery and Spirituality Center in Norfolk - and more than 100 miles away a healing garden was blessed Aug. 8 at Alegent Creighton Health Bergan Mercy Medical Center in Omaha.

Each project - though unrelated in sponsorship - is designed to create spaces for people to relax, reflect and pray.

Marches and prayer vigils among pro-life events in coming months

From marches to prayerful vigils, people across the archdiocese are invited to participate in several pro-life activities in the coming months - and a new event this year offers another way to celebrate life.

A 5K run, 1½-mile walk and family barbecue sponsored by the archdiocese's Respect Life Apostolate was held Sept. 15 at V.J. & Angela Skutt Catholic High School in Omaha.

Students, teachers make smooth transition to five-school consortium

From running around the playground to sharing books in the library, it hasn't taken fifth-grader Shane Baratta long to adjust after switching this school year from now-closed St. Stanislaus School in Omaha to St. Bernadette School in Bellevue.

"It's fun to be in a new school, meet new kids and make new friends," Baratta said one week into the school year.
