Enriching the church

For Josefina Flores, a member of St. Joseph Parish in Omaha, her family’s move from Mexico to Omaha began slowly – 35 years ago a brother drawn by job opportunities in the meatpacking industry; later on, other siblings and eventually her parents.
Thirteen years ago, Flores said, she followed “to find a better life.”
