Please join us for an evening of fellowship and Hope in the Good Life! We'll gather to share a wonderful meal and enjoy a program highlighting the many ways we worked together in the past year. 

Your partnership with us will provide crucial services for the many Nebraskans we help with:

  • Counseling services
  • Emergency cash assistance
  • Food assistance
  • Immigration legal assistance
  • Refugee resettlement
  • Shelter for women and children escaping domestic violence

Your support will help us bring Hope in the Good Life to those we help throughout southern Nebraska!

Watch this webpage and our social media accounts for updates regarding the evening's program. 

2023 Heart of Christ Award will be presented to SHIRLEY LANG

This year's Heart of Christ Award winner has worked with Catholic Social Services (CSS) over the years, having young women who chose life for their children stay with her during and after their pregnancies. Her love for His children extended to refugees fleeing violence. Years ago, CSS encountered a teenage boy who arrived from Cambodia and was living on the street. Shirley and her family opened their home to this young man, who stayed with the Langs for more than two years. Her story inspires all of us to perform the works of mercy in response to the call of God.
