Farmers and others gather for nine consecutive Mondays – June through August – at Beaver Creek Cemetery to say a rosary and other prayers for good weather and strong harvests.

Workers at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church install stained glass windows from now-closed St. Patrick Church, both in Omaha.
