Resurrection School students in grades 5-8 presented 200 port pillows and $1,000 to Chemo Buddies founder Jill Kincaid on Feb. 3. Students designed port pillows using thread and fabric markers to draw pictures and write messages of love and hope. Port pillows help cancer patients going through chemotherapy treatments protect their port-a-cath, or port, which is placed beneath the skin so cancer patients can receive treatments. A port pillow is placed between the shoulder and a seatbelt to shield it from irritation.

Catholic Schools Week at Corpus Christi
Wonderful learning experiences highlighted Catholic Schools Week at Corpus Christi School in Evansville. Among them were daily skits by the teachers that were based on the day’s scripture readings. In this photo, teachers Abby Coudret, Jackie McCormick, Audrey Folz and Dawn Bunner recreate the story of Daniel and the Lion’s Den.
Pray for Mrs. Popham
Students, faculty and staff at Reitz Memorial High School wore special t-shirts to support Assistant Principal Lisa Popham, who recently began treatment for cancer. Popham has spent her entire career in Evansville Catholic schools, the last 23 years at Reitz Memorial. The back of each shirt had the name Popham, and the front included the message “Fight like a Tiger!” In sharing the news with the Reitz Memorial community, Principal Sally Sternberg asked for prayers that Popham’s treatment is effective. Please join the Reitz Memorial community in praying for Mrs. Popham.
