St. Mary Magdalene Parish celebrates 150 years

Defining the boundaries of downtown Omaha’s St. Mary Magdalene Parish calls to mind the hymn that begins: “In Christ there is no east or west/In Him no south or north.”
Numerous Catholics on both sides of the Missouri River feel part of one of the city’s oldest parishes, which will celebrate its 150th anniversary with special events Aug. 10-12.
