Archdiocese working to fill need for Hispanic deacons

Through personal conversations and pastors’ recommendations, the archdiocese is encouraging Hispanic men who feel called to serve the church and their community to consider becoming a permanent deacon.

Deacon formation leads to profound transformation

The 2008 funeral of a National Guard colleague was an eye-opener for Gary Krupa of St. Bernadette Parish in Bellevue.
During the tributes to Deacon Bob Chadwick of St. Leonard Parish in Madison, people talked about how he had touched them, and brought Jesus into their lives and the lives of so many others.

Parish enjoys five generations of a joy-filled family

“Joy adapts and changes, but it always endures, even as a flicker of light born of our personal certainty that, when everything is said and done, we are infinitely loved,” wrote Pope Francis in “The Joy of the Gospel” (no. 6). That kind of joy and love is exemplified by the Rudloff family, longtime members of St. Bernard Parish in Omaha.
