Nebraska bishops honored at dinner

Nebraska's three bishops and a bishop from Iowa were honored Oct. 25 for their support of Spirit Catholic Radio at the station's annual Spirit Celebration Dinner.

Archbishop George J. Lucas, Bishop William J. Dendinger of Grand Island and Bishop James D. Conley of Lincoln were honored with the Spirit Award, as was Bishop Richard E. Pates of Des Moines, for their commitment to the nonprofit radio station's mission to use the airwaves to spread the Gospel message.

Seven Oaks grant to help seniors

A $10,000 grant from a foundation will benefit low-income seniors who live at Seven Oaks at Notre Dame in Omaha, as well as nurse practitioner students at Creighton University.

The students will provide full health screenings and follow-up consultations, with an emphasis on identifying and treating depression. The grant from the Gary and Mary West Foundation also will help fund a program designed to help residents identify and use their talents to assist others.

Schools mark Veterans Day

Schools across the archdiocese this month honored military veterans at special Masses and assemblies marking the nation's Nov. 11 celebration of Veterans Day.

Eighth-graders at St. Bernard School in Omaha, for example, invited veterans and active duty military to join them Nov. 14 at an all-school Mass, where a Boy Scout color guard presented the U.S. flag and patriotic hymns were part of the liturgy.
