History of St. Anne Parish

  • 1890, Dixon takes shape as a railroad town, with many Irish Catholics.
  • 1893, village of Dixon is incorporated and Bishop Richard Scannell purchases land, where a church is built.
  • 1903, St. Anne Parish is established.
  • 1908, another piece of land is deeded to the parish, a rectory and school are built.

Archbishop’s Annual Appeal benefits evangelization, other worthy causes

For Dave Loecker, evangelization is a personal mission.
 
“I have friends and family who have left the Catholic Church, so I want to learn how to start conversations to hopefully bring them back,” said Loecker, a member of All Saints Parish at St. John the Baptist Church in Fordyce. 
Now, he has some extra help.
 

Faith, energy, creativity recognized at Archbishop’s Dinner for Education

Jenny Bradley, preschool director and pre-kindergarten teacher at Holy Name School in Omaha, taught in public schools during the summer a couple of years early in her career.

It went fine, she said, but something was missing.

 “The way I was raised, I prayed about everything. I couldn’t figure out how I would teach without using the word, ‘God,’” she said.
