Praying before Christmas – and year-round

Many people add devotions to their routines during the Advent season that go beyond Sunday Mass: the sacrament of reconciliation, daily Mass, prayer time in the morning or evening.

Organizations, schools honor veterans

The Andersons, members of St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Omaha, have a tradition of attending Thanksgiving Day Mass as a family, bringing food items to be blessed during Mass, a reminder of Jesus’ presence at their family dinner.

Family makes Thanksgiving Mass priority

Before relatives and friends arrive to share a meal or the family even gathers to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV, Kelly and Damien Anderson and their children head to church for Mass to thank God for the gifts in their lives.
