Special Mass marks National Migration Week

About 50 people from various parishes gathered to show support, pray with and for migrants and refugees during a special Stations of the Cross and Mass Jan. 12 at Holy Name Church in Omaha.

Sixth-grader Nathan Davis, left, fifth-grader Braden Mackey, seventh-graders Emma Newton, Ella Daly and Zoe Rauterkus, and kindergartner Sydney Gatzemeyer greet Bo, the therapy dog, Jan. 10 at St. James/Seton School in Omaha.

Suzy Richardson, director of student services at St. James/Seton School in Omaha, plays with her dog Bo, a therapy dog that brings joy and stress relief to students every Wednesday.

Bo helps students with anxiety, other emotions

Every Wednesday morning, Bo roams the halls at St. James/Seton School in Omaha.
But he’s not a student ducking class – he’s a golden retriever/labrador mix eager to offer a friendly greeting to everyone he meets.
