Review for Catholic Answers, Inc., El Cajon, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have written one review on Catholic Answers already but I though that I need to respond to a review by CatholicDonor that is spurious at best. You give your opinion of a wage disparity that is very dubious. Mr. Keating did indeed EARN the salary you mention but it is a very appropriate amount for an executive of his caliber working in SOCAL. Then when you also consider that he has dedicated a better part of his life to what most people agree is one of the very best Catholic lay apostolic organizations around, your opinion look s more like envy than anything else. I have been blessed by the opportunity to attend one of their cruises, attended one of their conferences and I can't get enough of the wonderful materials, radio shows, and podcasts that they provide. I have also been blessed to know some of those non-executive staff you mention. I have no idea what they make. What I do know is that the ones I have met love their job, feel a great blessing to be a part of that apostolate, and are joyful, loving Christians. You claim to be an expert in this field. You did not use your name. You have not written any other reviews on any other organizations. I am going to pray that the resentment you are feeling about CA is replaced by joy and love which is given freely by our Lord and Savior.

Review for VSS Catholic Communications Inc KVSS, Omaha, NE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

KVSS is a blessed organization bringing "Christ to people, and people to Christ" as they say often on their station, and it is true. Omaha is such a wonderful community filled with generous and committed people and it shows up in some really amazing ways. One of those is the Spirit Catholic Radio station that expanded several years ago and now broadcasting a clear and powerful signal across most of the great state of Nebraska. The message delivered is a true blessing in my life and the programming is some of the best you can find anywhere in the US. It is run by a unique and faithful group of individuals who are fabulous stewards of the gifts given to them. It is evident in the way others are called in many different ways to help them and the joy that is evident in the staff and volunteers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

grow their ability to serve even more people in Nebraska

Review for The Institute For Priestly Formation Foundation, Omaha, NE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization is comprised of some of the most faith filled and spiritual people I have ever come across. Based on Ignatian spirituality, the institute is focused on the development and spiritual formation of our future priests. I am amazed every time I get the opportunity to see them minister to the diocesan seminarians and priests.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I want to help make more people aware of the work they are doing so that their support grows and enables them to help even more seminarians and priests.

Review for Catholic Charities Of The Archdiocese Of Omaha, Inc., Omaha, NE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Omaha is a fabulous organization. We all know what a toll the past and current economic environment has had on people. We are all called to help our neighbors and one of the best things we can do is to support Catholic Charities. The Omaha affiliate is a great steward of the resources entrusted to them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't think there is much improvement to be made. I pray that people's generosity is increased so that they are able to do more.

Review for Catholic Answers, Inc., El Cajon, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Catholic Answers is a blessing in my life. It is the best source of information available to Catholics and Non Catholics alike who want to learn about our rich faith, grow closer to God and understand with clarity the moral issues that confront our lives today. The staff and guest apologists at Catholic Answers are true professionals and convey their answers in loving, clear, and understandable ways.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do everything possible to increase their ability to reach more people with the resources they have.

Review for Habitat for Humanity of Omaha, Omaha, NE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Habitat for Humanity of Omaha is rising to new heights of greatness in their efforts to provide low income housing to the Omaha and surrounding community. Since I first started volunteering in the spring of 2009, they have doubled the number of new and rehabbed homes being completed and begun a much needed blighted home demolition program. Habitat for Humanity is a fabulous organization and the Omaha affiliate is certainly one of the best and rivals the work of affiliates with much greater population bases.

Review for EDUCATE UGANDA, Omaha, NE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a wonderful organization doing much needed work for the children in Uganda. I personally know the people in charge and that they are very faithful and committed to this work. They do not take a penny for their work and 100% of the funds goes toward the mission of education.

Review for Habitat for Humanity of Omaha, Omaha, NE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer with H4H Omaha for about 3 years now. Because I am semi-retired, I am able to put in as many as 30 hours in some weeks. In that time I have worked in many different roles but I currently spend most of my time helping out in the technology area on the telephony and computer support. I am also a member of Faithful Builders, a coalition of 8 churches that fund and build one of the many H4H homes in Omaha each year. At some time or another I have had the pleasure to work with all of the office staff and most of the construction staff. I have found the staff to be very dedicated and passionate about their work and the necessary and critical mission of bettering the lives of our new homeowners. The volunteers in our Faithful Builders coalition are their equals in dedication and passion. There are many fabulous charitable organizations that I choose to support with my time, talent, and treasure, but none has been more rewarding to me than my time spent with H4H Omaha.
