St. Mary Eagle Scout candidate gives back to parish, school

Tidings 07-04: Michael Loria presents his display case at St. Mary’s.

Michael Loria, a 2013 graduate of St. Mary School, Palmdale, made the school and St. Mary Church the beneficiary of his Boy Scout Eagle service project. Part of his project was to build a trophy display case for the school and church conference center, a project that was celebrated June 28.

The pre-fab display case — located in the Fr. Rowe Conference Center that is used by the school and all parish ministries — was assembled by Michael with the help of his parents and his Troop 283, within a six-hour time frame.

The 14-year-old Life Scout (and sophomore at Paraclete High School) currently is working on his Eagle Scout rank, for which he must now complete and submit his paperwork to be ready for his Eagle Board of Review.

Iowa and us in a Year of Mercy

It was in the general-purpose room of St. Francis of Assisi Church in West Des Moines that Donald Trump made his last pitch to Iowa voters, inside a caucus room. He wanted to make sure people remembered that not only will he build the wall on our border with Mexico, but that he’s the only candidate who will make Mexico pay for it.
