St. Mary's School rallies
around ill eighth-grader
When eighth-grader Kathleen Narloch was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer earlier this year, St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception School in Walnut Creek rallied around her and her family. Many Masses were offered on her behalf, prayers and special intentions recited and, offers of help were extended.
Her eighth-grade classmates made banners and sent cards. When they learned that Kathleen lost her hair, four boys in her class decided to shave their heads in support. The school also distributed green wristbands with Kathleen's name and faith family motto — "Just Keep Swimming."
As the community continues to pray for Kathleen's recovery and looks forward to her return to school, her visits for school activities are welcome. Kathleen participated in a pumpkin decorating activity with her faith family, and joined in the school's annual Halloween Boofest.
