  • Gentle yoga classes exercise body and spirit
    Now that two Holy Family Church parishioners have found their calling, it sometimes leads them to unusual teaching positions — like tree pose. Anne Marie Evered and Sandy DeMoy alternate leading gentle yoga sessions two times a week in the home of parishioner Mariloris Oliverio. These classes are open to anyone who wants to stretch his or her health regimen.
  • Runner recalled for devotion to sport
    LINCOLN CITY — The Knights of Columbus here have named their council after a man legendary for his fitness — physical and spiritual. Patrick Irish would leave his home in Otis and run high into the Coast Range, usually praying the rosary along the way.
  • They're on the mountain, for all kinds of reasons
    More than 30 members of Portland’s St. Clare Parish trekked for a day high on Mount Hood. There are many purposes for the hike. It’s a fundraiser for charity that brings in about $25,000 per year as hikers get friends and family to sponsor them. It’s also a way to build friendships and part of an effort to maintain parishioners’ health.
  • Coaches' health tips
    The Catholic Sentinel asked each Catholic high school in the area to send three general health tips from a coach or physical education teacher. From eating breakfast to doing toe-raises while brushing your teeth, here are the answers.
  • Gardeners hope seed of foodsharing idea spreads far and wide
    DAMASCUS — Out in the expansive yard, rabbits nibble alfalfa and chickens give a halfhearted squawk as Joe and Cathy Culver retrieve fresh eggs. Produce — potatoes, green beans, cabbage, tomatoes and peppers — grow in a large garden on their acreage here. The Culvers aren’t the only ones benefitting from the fresh bounty of this bucolic setting.
  • Catholic runner, 86, keeps feeling good
    Dale Allen is often seen cruising in through the automatic sliding doors, having just covered four or five miles. He wears shorts on his lanky frame, plus a tattered baseball cap and a red shirt that says “Over the Hill” on the front, with the back reading “and Dale.” The shirt, made for him by his daughter, features Allen’s own smiling mug. He's an 86-year-old runner.
  • La Salle Prep wonders, "Is it just food?"
    MILWAUKIE — “Is it just food?” That’s the question being asked at La Salle Catholic College Preparatory this year. La Salle students, faculty, and staff will be seeing food differently because of a school-wide theme addressing the very concept of food. In conjunction with the theme, La Salle is reappraising and making significant changes to its food services.
