Giving thanks


During Thanksgiving, Pandora Lawler’s fifth-grade class at Trinity Catholic Elementary met Brother Irenee Richard at the St. Martin de Porres Homeless Residence in Lewiston. The students learned about the home’s mission, toured the facility and left baked goods and food items for Thanksgiving dinner. Students returned at Christmas with gifts for the residents, bought with more than $700 raised during a school-wide raffle.
