BANGOR — As part of its celebration of Maine Catholic Schools Week (Jan. 31 to Feb. 6), All Saints Catholic School in Bangor will put their best “foot forward” in helping two community organizations in their crucial role of helping thousands in need in the community.
“Our school-wide community service project for the week is ‘Souper Socks’” and the kids are really excited about it,” said Matthew Houghton, principal of All Saints Catholic School.
“Souper Socks” will begin on Monday, Feb. 1, as students will bring in canned goods and socks to support both the Bangor Ecumenical Food Cupboard, an organization that has been serving the hungry in the city since 1975, and the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter, which is open 365 days a year and provides an overnight shelter, day services, a daily soup kitchen, food pantry and an overnight winter warming center.
Students will come to school on Monday dressed in “crazy socks” to help promote the initiative and make posters and cards for the food cupboard and shelter to let clients know they are praying for them.
“This is a great way for our school to contribute to the welfare of others,” said Houghton. “In addition…

Anglican plans to strengthen and alter Palmerston North’s earthquake-prone All Saints’ church building have come up against a brick wall.
On the second day of a resource management hearing, Heritage New Zealand is standing firm in opposition to the part of the plan that involves removing the baptistery wall.

Church leaders said the baptistery was not used, that the baptismal font should be in the church’s central aisle, and the wall should go to allow a generous and welcoming approach into the building.
But Heritage witness Jamie Jacobs said the partial demolition would destroy a valuable design feature of the front facade which was unacceptable and permanent.“Responsible guardianship does not permit ignoring or discounting…
Concept designs for enhancements to the front of Palmerston North's All Saints Church show the proposed new entranceway.
The final day of a hearing into whether the owners of Palmerston North’s All Saints’ church should be allowed to make alterations to it nearly ended as soon as it began.
Church lawyer John Maassen on Friday objected to the strength of council lawyer Nick Jessen’s advice for the resource management commissioners to decline the application for resource consents.
The church wants to remove the baptistery wall and build a new glazed entrance and foyer on The Square as part of a project to carry out seismic strengthening of the earthquake-prone historic building.
Maassen said Jessen had crossed a line from providing legal submissions to advocating for the application to be turned down.
He urged the commissioners to adjourn immediately and seek independent legal advice on whether they should allow Jessen’s submissions.Jessen said the challenge was “outrageous”, “as though he is the only lawyer in the…
