Archdiocese buys land for center near UNO

With backing from the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) and surveys of parents and youths indicating solid support, the archdiocese has purchased land near the college campus in hopes of building a Newman Center to open in the fall of 2016 with a student residence, a prayer garden, rectory and chapel.

Approval of the proposed land use is required from Omaha's Planning Board and City Council, and a presentation before the planning board is scheduled for March 5.

Lenten Missions

John Michael Talbot is like many leaders of Lenten missions planned across the archdiocese over the next two months - he encourages parents to bring their children to his three events, set for parishes in Omaha, Ralston and Norfolk.

"The family is the primary evangelizer," said Talbot, who spreads the faith through music and talks that stress the sacraments, encouragement and hope. "That's where the most basic evangelization happens."
