St. Michael students celebrate 'Angel's Wing'

St. Michael School in Albion is celebrating an addition that includes two classrooms, storage space and an upgraded home for the music and band program.

In a vote of the 132 students, the addition begun in May and finished just two days before school started in August has been dubbed "Angels Wing." The extra space is needed in part because the school has its largest fourth-grade class - 19 students - in at least 10 years, said Lisa Schumacher, principal.

November begins year-long emphasis of understanding death, dying and rites

In the Apostles Creed, after professing our belief in the Holy Trinity, we say (I believe in) "the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting." It is easy to reflect on these core beliefs of ours during the month of November, as we celebrate the feasts of the liturgical calendar.

Parish chairs help bring success to Archbishop's Annual Appeal

Laverta Mauch, a member of St. Rose of Lima Parish in Crofton, said she hasn't had many questions about the Archbishop's Annual Appeal this year, but she knows what she would say should anyone ask about its impact.

"I see the whole archdiocese's needs," said Mauch, one of more than 70 leaders across the archdiocese who are spearheading their parishes' appeal drives. "I see where a lot of the money goes to help the less fortunate."
