OMAHA (KPTM)- Several Omaha Catholic Schools have money problems, and some will shut down. However, others will stay open-and combine resources. Three schools will be closing for the 2013-2014 school year, but there is good news for other schools because some unexpected money is coming that will help keep their doors open.
Annie Sabaliauskas kids have been attending All Saints Catholic School for about the last 20 years.
"What is important in life is hard work and education," she said.
Sabaliauskas's son, Luke is a current student. Luke wants to grow up to be a doctor and his favorite subject in school is math. Often Luke's books are outdated and its hard for him to learn.
"We nee the new books, the newer technology, the foreign language, (and) better math," Sabaliauskas said.
All Saints School was one of the original six school proposed to close down. Wednesday, the school teamed up with a program that promises to help the school grow both financially-and educationally.
School principal Marlin Berki said, "Going to be a miracle for our students and for our school."
"What is there now is good, but with CUES it will be, I can't, great!" Sabaliauskas said.
The Christian Urban Education Service or CUES is a nonprofit organization that has helped provide financial support to Sacred Heart School for the last 40 years. Wednesday, Catholic Church announced it would now be helping All Saints and Holy Name schools as well.
"We are going to be able to do what we need to do rather than have to worry about whether we can," Marlin said.
Catholic officials say the new money comes with no strings attached and won't affect how the schools are run. They are also reminding you that you can give donations to the school of your choice anytime you want.
