Omaha parish celebrates Easter season with risen Christ artwork

Holy Cross Parish in Omaha is celebrating the Easter season in a special way: With a 10-foot by 12-foot silhouette of the risen Christ, made of maple wood and mounted behind the altar and the church’s crucifix.

Students and a teacher at V.J. and Angela Skutt Catholic High School in Omaha help build four walls for a shed during a spring break service project with Habitat for Humanity in Council Bluffs.

Serving others is focus of students’ spring break

While Mercy High School seniors Michelle Allen and Jenny Gilbert could have spent spring break relaxing at home, they and teens in other Catholic schools in the archdiocese turned instead to serving others.
