Fundraiser benefits Make-A-Wish

BRANDYWINE HUNDRED — Before the Christmas break, St. Edmond’s Academy held a week of fundraising for Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Northern Delaware and Susquehanna Valley. The students raised $4,384 for the foundation, well above the goal of $650.

Organized by the student council, the boys at St. Edmond’s bought Make-A-Wish bracelets and pretzels, and they held an ugly Christmas sweater contest. The school administration had promised to take a pie in the face from the contest winners if the $650 goal was reached.

“The school implemented a weeklong fundraiser that had amazing results and will help support our mission to fulfill wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions,” said Dennis J. Heron, president and CEO of the local Make-A-Wish foundation.

Catholic school students will discuss ‘fruit of the Spirit’ in classes this year

For The Dialog

Most Catholics don’t think of frogs when they think of the fruits of the Holy Spirit.

That’s because most Catholics aren’t in Kelly MacPherson’s second-grade class at Most Blessed Sacrament School in Berlin, Md. The frog is her mascot with an acronym: Faithfully Rely On God.
