Catholic School Lives Spirit of Christmas by Helping Student

In the spirit of Christmas, families at a Catholic grade school in Maryland are rallying support around a fourth-grade student with an autoimmune disorder, according to the Catholic Review.

Student Emily Kolenda said that the support she has received from members of the Monsignor Slade Catholic School community make her “feel like everyone is supporting [her].”

The Catholic Review reports on some of the efforts to help Emily and her family:

Most recently hospitalized Dec. 15, Emily received special visitors, as members of the Monsignor Slade community visited and sang carols in an effort to bring her some Christmas cheer.

To help defray the 11-year-old’s medical bills, which include chemotherapy in addition to frequent hospital stays, Monsignor Slade has organized fundraisers, including events last month in Sparrows Point and Glen Burnie.

At Monsignor Slade, that support system helps transport Emily’s sisters, Megan, 9, and Colleen, 7, to and from the Glen Burnie school.
