The latest CSS Auburn News

By Katie Patrick

Father’s Day is a time to celebrate the invaluable presence of fathers in our lives, to cherish the memories we’ve shared, and to reflect on the profound impact they have on shaping who we are. As a Catholic community, we hold a special reverence for the role of fathers, recognizing them as pillars of strength, wisdom, and love within our families.

Steve Sousek, a member of North American Martyrs Parish in Lincoln, will embark on a 520-mile route June 22-26 to benefit RUNBORN, an entity supporting women and children in crisis, and unborn children.

Sousek created RUNBORN in 2020 and participated in events to raise funds for the Women’s Care Center and St. Gianna Women’s Home in Lincoln. The events have raised more than $101,000.
