It could have been much worse.
A smoldering fire at Holy Ghost Church in Omaha caused severe smoke damage, but parishioners and staff are grateful there were no injuries or structural damage, said Father William Sanderson, pastor.

Evangelization, building boom make old parish new

It’s one of the oldest parishes in the archdiocese, but its parishioners are among the youngest. 
It’s also one of the largest parishes, but as St. Patrick Parish in Elkhorn celebrates its 150th anniversary, parishioners say its welcoming spirit, faith and service make it a close-knit and spirit-filled place.

Ann’s Attic helps needy with low-cost clothing

A circle of love.
