    We should not ritualize Lent, but find our own meaning and purpose.

    Episode 66: What is the Journey of Faith?

    Episode 66: What is the Journey of Faith?

    The Journey of Faith is a new Pastoral Planning initiative within the Archdiocese of Omaha. Over the past three years, some rural and urban parishes have already joined together in groupings served by one pastor and one or more associate pastors, and with a sharing of resources.


    A projected 24% decline in numbers of priests over the next 10 years, only 22% of Catholics in the pews for weekend Masses, and shifting populations in both rural and urban areas – all resulting in imbalances that threaten the long-term viability of parishes and schools.

    Episode 65: Living Lent more fully!

    Lent 2022 is here! What is the true meaning of the smudge of ash on our foreheads? Most Rev. George J. Lucas gives us his thoughts on how Catholics can deepen their spiritual lives during the Lenten season.


    Recalling the words of Genesis 3:19 used during the administering of ashes, “Remember that you are dust and unto dust you shall return,” how does that verse really put this awareness into people’s minds as something that they can really reflect upon?
