Cheryl Hommerding and her daughter Molly, a fourth-grader, prayed at St. Katharine Drexel School in St. Cloud before heading out for the work-a-thon.

Students, staff and families from the Catholic schools in St. Cloud, Sauk Rapids, Sartell and St. Joseph came together Oct. 24 to do yard work for people in need in those communities as part of Saints in Service, an annual work-a-thon. After the work was done, they gathered at Cathedral High School for a lunch provided by the school and fun activities for the kids.
