Parish religious education programs take several forms

Each week, often on Wednesday evenings, nearly 14,000 children in grades K-8 pour into parish social halls, school rooms, even gymnasiums across the archdiocese, to learn the Catholic faith and deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Birth mother: Adoption the best choice

Three years ago, Katie Brown of Lincoln found herself facing an unplanned pregnancy for the second time. Unmarried at 18 years old, she already had a 6-month-old and wasn’t sure she could take on the responsibilities of parenting two children alone.
