Confirmation classes donate to local organizations

February 27, 2011

On Sunday afternoon, members of this year's Confirmation class presented Betsy Roberts, treasurer of the St. Marys Christian Food Bank, with a check for over $5,500 that they raised for the organization through their "Souper Bowl" collection at area churches on Super Bowl Sunday. The students collected donations following that weekend's Masses at all three Catholic churches in St. Marys, as well as at the chapel at Elk County Catholic High School following a Saturday evening service.

Former St. Marys resident Jenn Steele, along with numerous relatives including cousins Margie and Nick Fritz, Sara and Ray Shaffer and Christa Fritz-Gainar, all of St. Marys, were among those who witnessed the recent NASA Discovery space shuttle launch on Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011 at 4:53 p.m. The pristine weather provided for ideal viewing of the launch along central Florida's space coast, home to Kennedy Space Center. The Expedition 26 crew's 11-day mission includes two spacewalks in order to conduct maintenance work and install new components.
