Historic Nebraska church hosts craft fair and dinner

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A church in Dwight that dates back to 1914 hosted its seasonal community gathering on Sunday.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2008, Assumption Catholic Church has been a staple in the community for decades.

“The church has been kind of central to the community,” said Ann Benes, president of the Altar Society. “It’s a very Catholic community in our area. Parish life has been kind of the center of the whole town and the church life.”

The spaghetti feed and craft fair, which had around 34 vendors, was a fundraiser to help parish members improve and repair many aspects of the church.

Many community members frequently use the grottoes, school building, shrines and statues.

The parish invites anyone to come and enjoy its historic grounds.
