Shrine to Polish saints

Donors to the new shrines of St. Faustina Kowalska and St. Maximilian Kolbe at St. Stanislaus Church in Omaha gather March 30 to examine the finished work. From left are Kathy Bogus; Father William Sanderson, pastor; Amanda Placzek and Mary Ann Pawlusiak, a representative of the Polish Home in Omaha. The shrine will be dedicated after an April 11 Mass concluding the parish’s Lenten mission.

Garvey: Lenten practice should not fall by wayside

I probably shouldn’t admit this in front of my grandchildren, but I am a fan of McDonald’s fish sandwiches. When I was a young lawyer in San Francisco, my firm’s office was right across Market Street from a McDonald’s, and every day for a year, I had two fish sandwiches and a chocolate shake for lunch. I am ashamed. But I still like them.

Hispanic pastoral center to open in Omaha

A vacant school building in South Omaha has found new a purpose and new identity serving Hispanic Catholics.

The building, formerly St. Mary School, which closed in 2005, and which housed St. Peter Claver Cristo Rey High School from 2007 to 2011, is now Centro Pastoral Tepeyac (or Tepeyac Pastoral Center, named after the site of the apparitions of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico).
