District 5/6 of the Archdiocesan Council Catholic Women met in mid November at St. Therese Parish in Portland. Franciscan Father Patrick Evard spoke to members about his work as director of the Francis Center, which serves individuals and families in need. Sue Anker, ACCW treasurer, presented Father Evard, with checks for $151.

Following his report on how he manages the distribution of food, clothing and financial contributions, members helped load his truck with winter clothing they had collected. The friar's talk to the ACCW and the donations are annual late autumn traditions.

The next meeting of District 5/6 is 10 a.m. Monday, Jan. 14, at Christ The King Parish in Milwaukie.
