Abstract: A continuum $ X$ is $ \omega $-connected if for every pair of points $ x$, $ y$ of $ X$, there exists an irreducible subcontinuum of $ X$ from $ x$ to $ y$ that is decomposable. If $ A \subset X$ then $ K\left( A \right)$ is the intersection of all subcontinua of $ X$ that contain $ A$ in their interiors. The main theorem shows that if $ X$ is an $ \omega $-connected continuum and $ H$ is a connected nowhere dense subset of $ X$, then $ K\left( H \right)$ has a void interior. Several corollaries are established for continua with certain separation properties and a final theorem shows the equivalence of $ \omega $-connectedness and $ \delta $-connectedness for plane continua.
