4 St. Mary's Catholic starts school year

Staff and students at St. Mary’s Catholic School begin their first day back in class in late August, with a morning prayer outside the Spring Lake school and church.

For decades, Roman Catholic voters have been a pivotal swing vote in U.S. presidential elections, with a majority backing the winner – whether Republican or Democrat – nearly every time.

How they vote in the battleground states this year could well decide the outcome, and the rival campaigns are targeting them with fervent appeals to vote based on their faith.
