Stanton couple build faith, family, church

They’ve built a marriage and a family, a home and they helped build a church.
“Through a lot of prayer and effort we made it this far, and we feel really blessed,” said Gladys Frank, 91, of St. Peter Parish in Stanton, who celebrated 71 years of marriage last August with her husband, 92-year-old Elvin.

Christ child is focus of Filipino celebration

The figure of Santo Niño de Cebu, the Holy Child, was raised high to shouts of praise, “Viva! Pit Señor!,” (Live! Hail Lord!) at an annual Filipino Mass and celebration Jan. 21 at St. Cecilia Cathedral in Omaha.
The tradition in Omaha goes back 38 years, but the Christ child has been elevated in the hearts of Filipino Catholics for centuries.
