Austin Grothe, a first grader at Holy Family School, Clarkston, met his new prayer pal, Trudy Cooper, for the first time when she paid him a visit at school. Each Holy Family student has a special prayer pal for whom they pray each day and to whom they write letters each month. The program is one way the students keep in touch with parishioners.

The “Chancery Quilting Ladies” meet regularly in the basement of the Catholic Pastoral Center to create hand-made quilts.
The women are offering their goods for sale during the holiday season, with all proceeds benefitting Catholic Charities.
Prices vary: $15 for crib size, $20 for a twin bed, and larger sizes for $25, $30, and $35.
Most are cotton; a few are polyester.
To purchase a quilt, come to the basement of the Catholic Pastoral Center, 1023 W. Riverside Ave. in Spokane, on Thursdays between 8 a.m.-1 p.m.
Students at Cataldo School, Spokane, gathered up the sweet proceeds of this year’s Halloween trick-or-treat expedition and donated the goods to the House of Charity, which serves the homeless of downtown Spokane. School officers collected the candy during Mass and then delivered it. Pictured: the first graders and their contribution to the effort. (IR photo courtesy of Cataldo School, Spokane)
