‘Shaving heads for Fred’

Dozens of students and teachers at a Minnesota Catholic school volunteered to have their heads shaved to raise funds for a classmate who was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. Details are in The Catholic Spirit, which reports that the Shave Your Head for Fred benefit raised about $10,000.

Preacher enlivens church event

Our friend Ed. Foster Jr., the Web content editor at the Florida Catholic who also has done great work for us as a photographer (check out this image of the Christ of Havana statue that he took for us while visiting Cuba in 2004), sent us a note about a great little audio slideshow he put together on an address that Jesuit Father J-Glenn Murray gave at the Living Eucharist Conference sponsored by the Diocese of St. Petersburg this month. Ed says keynote addresses can be a little dull sometimes, but not when Father Murray is giving one. Amen to that! It’s on the paper’s homepage right now, but there’s also a permalink if you can’t find it there.
