Local residents see impact of giving

Elizabeth Gawley keeps a scrapbook of all the letters she has received from Richard, the 14-year-old boy she sponsors in the Philippines.

The book serves as a reminder of what her monthly donation for the past five years has given him emotionally, intellectually and economically.

The 22-year-old college student sponsors Richard through Christian Foundation for Children and Aging (CFCA), a non-profit organization that works in developing countries to help improve the lives of more than 317,000 children, youth and elderly.

Praying the Stations of the Cross

FREMONT - They might be young, but kindergartners and first graders at Archbishop Bergan Elementary are becoming familiar with Catholic traditions and devotions.

Since Lent began this year, they are spending time each Friday learning the Stations of the Cross.

Danielle Paulsen, first grade teacher, said learning the Stations of the Cross is important for the children because they need to know that God sent his only son, Jesus, to save them.
