Elementary school honors Cardinal Cupich
Red was the color of the day at Ss. Peter and Paul School in Omaha, but it had nothing to do with Husker football.
Dressed in a variety of red garb including shirts, tennis shoes and ribbons, students and staff at Ss. Peter and Paul School in Omaha honored now-Cardinal Blase Cupich, who attended the school, the day before he was elevated to cardinal in Rome.
Cory Sepich, principal, said the school gathered in the morning as usual in the gym for prayer Nov. 18, this time with congratulatory signs and prayers of blessing for the Omaha native, who now is archbishop of Chicago.
Students also made cardinal hats and other arts and crafts recognizing the first native of the Archdiocese of Omaha to be created a cardinal. And the school prepared a video of the day’s prayers and activities to share with him.
