Angels hit the green for golf benefit
KANSAS City, Kan. — Don’t be surprised if you see a traffic jam caused by gawkers and paparazzi snapping photos at Painted Hills Golf Course here in late June. And don’t be shocked if you see Sisters dressed in white habits and veils sinking putts on the putting green.
Attracting all the attention will be the annual golf outing to benefit the Sisters, Servants of Mary, an order of women religious with its provincial motherhouse in Kansas City, Kansas.
The 20th golf classic to benefit the Sisters is scheduled for June 26 at Painted Hills Golf Course, 7101 Parallel Pkwy., Kansas City, Kansas. Proceeds will go toward renovating the Sisters’ convent.
Exchange student warmly welcomed by Wellsville family
WELLSVILLE — Sometimes, it’s better that what happens in Wellsville stays in Wellsville.
At least, that was the case for Indonesian exchange student Widya Pramesti, 18, a junior at Wellsville High School.
On only the fourth day of her physical education class, she was elbowed in one of her eyes during a spirited indoor flag football game.
“We had to take her to the hospital and run an MRI,” said Peggy Carmen, her host mother. “We had her eye checked for three more appointments. It swelled up and was black and blue and bloody for a month.”
Family life brightens a sometimes dark world
The family has been portrayed many ways in films too numerous to count. Among the most memorable of film families is the Corleone family in “The Godfather” trilogy.
The series traces the family from a single orphan boy escaping the violence of his native Sicily to the Corleones’ rise to become the most powerful Mafia family in America.
There is real love in the Corleone family, but it becomes warped and twisted by sin, ultimately leading to tragedy. The Corleone family failed because it became a school of sin, not virtue.
The church holds out a better choice.
Father John A. Riley, chancellor, announces the following appointments made by Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, effective July 1, unless otherwise noted.
