Valley Catholic President

In 1931, 5-year-old Robert Hughley stayed with friends while his mother joined a mournful caravan. A half dozen automobiles clanked 500 miles from Birmingham, Alabama, to central Louisiana to bury Robert’s uncle — at least the detached head. The uncle had been lynched and the body never found.  Hughley, a member of St. Andrew Parish in...

Inexcusable
It is inexcusable that U.P could dismiss any action when it was pretty obvious that her state of mind due to excessive drinking could not allow her to think clearly.

Meeting the needs of many

Public schools aren’t bad. Plenty of American children graduate from public schools and go on to live successful lives. But are these schools really meeting the needs of all kids and their parents today?

The Young Pope

NEW YORK (CNS) — Behind the opening credits of "The Young Pope," a naked baby boy crawls over a sea of infant mannequins, and a man dressed as the Roman pontiff emerges at the other end.

As bizarre as that may sound, the controversial, provocative new miniseries from pay-cable channel HBO only gets stranger from there.

20th Century Women

NEW YORK (CNS) — The moral compass in "20th Century Women" (A24), writer-director Mike Mills' rambling, unfiltered drama — loosely based on his adolescence in 1970s Santa Barbara, California — is President Jimmy Carter. Specifically, the film makes use of Carter's sermon-like "Crisis of Confidence" address, in which he said, "In a nation that was proud of hard work, strong families, close-knit communities and our faith in God, too many of us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption."

A Marian Year - of sorts
The date was May 13, 1981.  It was an otherwise beautiful spring day in Rome as Pope St. John Paul II made his way by “pope mobile” through the enthusiastic crowd of faithful and well-wishers.  Suddenly, shots rang out and the Holy Father slumped into the arms of aids, seriously wounded by the would-be assassin’s bullets.  I personally remember that day all too well.

Weathering the snow days

As principal of St. Therese School in Northeast Portland, Joy Hunt excels at jumping from one role to the next — one moment she’s comforting a kindergartner with a scraped knee, the next she’s navigating piles of paperwork. But nothing prepared her for this winter.

“I was part-snow-shoveler, part-weatherwoman,” laughed Hunt.

The principal joins administrators around the archdiocese navigating the startling snowfalls this winter and deciding how to make up lost instructional time

Rural Catholic education benefits

STAYTON — With the unified administration of St. Mary and Regis, many students and community members look back with fond memories tied to both schools. Regis senior Eric Gustin grew up walking the halls of St. Mary and Regis. As a leader both on and off the football field, he has many memories.

Gustin began playing football in third grade as part of St. Mary’s Catholic Youth Organization team. Throughout his 10 years playing football for St. Mary and Regis, one of his most influential mentors was his coach, Jeff Wiltsey. Wiltsey coached Gustin’s third- through seventh-grade teams and coached him all four years at Regis.

Special seating at the Madeleine
A chair is simply a chair, but a “Hokki” stool is something entirely different. Earlier this fall, The Madeleine School in Northeast Portland purchased two Hokki stools for use in the Learning Loft — a classroom where students can receive extra academic support from one of the school’s four learning support teachers. The stools’ convex base allows for movement in all directions.
