THE MAN OF THE SHROUD
As a part of its 15th anniversary celebration, Spirit Catholic Radio, in partnership with the Knights of Columbus, is bringing “The Man of the Shroud” exhibit to nine communities across Nebraska. This free exhibit, on loan from The National Shrine of St. Maximilian Kolbe – Marytown, Libertyville, Illinois, includes a life-size photographic transparency that replicates the holy Shroud of Turin and features 92 panels of information about the shroud, death, and resurrection of Jesus! Make plans to experience the power, history and beauty of the Holy Shroud of Turin when it visits Norfolk. You can visit this exhibit at the Norfolk Catholic High School cafeteria on July 22-July 25 (4:00-8:00 pm), July 26 (10:00 am-7:00 pm) & July 27 (8:00 am-5:00 pm).

HEARTLAND CATHOLIC MEN’S CONFERENCE
Join us Friday evening, August 1, 2014 for the fifth annual Heartland Catholic Men’s Conference at Christ the King Church in Omaha. This conference is an effort of the Archdiocese of Omaha to provide men in our region with an opportunity to come to know their faith better, network with other Catholic men, and receive spiritual nourishment.
For the last four years, hundreds of men have gathered each year in Omaha taking an entire Saturday to attend the Heartland Catholic Men’s conference. The goal of this conference has been, and continues to be, to provide men in our region with an opportunity to come to know their faith better, network with other Catholic men, and receive spiritual nourishment. This year, for our fifth anniversary celebration, the men have asked to change things up a bit. The men will still gather together, but this time it will be on Friday night, August 1. They will be inspired by speakers who will teach them how they bring Christ to others through their art. Our speakers will be country music legend, Collin Raye, folk-rock artist Mike Mangione, and comedian Jonnie W.
Then on Saturday, August 2 as a special thanks to our families who have supported them on this spiritual journey, the men would like to invite everyone to join them at Morrison Soccer Stadium at Creighton University for the first Heartland Family Festival. This festival will include performances from the men’s conference speakers, food, attractions, vendors, a kid zone, and more. The evening will end with a fireworks display in honor of our military families and a special musical salute from Collin Raye.
