FR 2.3151 Expelled Priests The Tell About d,Me4, Arrests in Brazil St. Louis (NC)-- Two U.S. missionary priests, safely return- ed here after 10 days in a Recife, Brazil, jail, detailed the criticism of the take-over of the government by the Brazilian army which led to their arrests. Although taken into custody on charges of "subversive agitation," they said they have no regrets. The elder of the missionaries, Father Darrell Rupiper, O.M.I., said: "We were forced to leave because we told the truth." The personal drama of Father Rupiper, 31, of Carroll, Iowa, and Father Peter Grams, 28, of St. Louis, began when the Brazilian military closed the Brazilian Con- gress and suspended the constitu- tion on Dec. 15. The next day Fathers Rupiper and Grams criticized the suspend- ing of constitutional freedoms -- of speech, meeting, habeas corpus, and legal representation-- in the weekly bulletin of their parish, Christ the Redeemer church, in Jordao, a suburb of Recife, north- eastern Brazil. The criticism was repeated from the pulpit at Sunday Masses, Father Grams said, and apparently was relayed to the military authorities. "At 10 o'clock that night, about 30 men in six cars surrounded the church. One of our parishioners who was just leaving the church returned and told us six armed men were at the door, waiting for us. We turned off the lights, walked out through the church, and they stopped us." Father Grams, whose father is a vice president of the Pulitzer Publishing Company, publishers of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, said their cell was adark, window- less room in the downtown police station. For the first three days, the two were not allowed to speak to each other and were interview- ed separately. Then the American consul came to the jail and arrang- ed for the priests to have beds. After 10days they were given a choice, the priests related-- leave the country voluntarily or stay and face a military court on charges of "subversive agitation." "We were told that ifwedecided to face trail, the questioning would continue 30 days, after which we would await our turn for a military court with a two-year backlog of cases," Father Rupiper said. "And they told us we would be convicted." At 10 P.M. Christmas night, they were allowed to leave Brazil vol- untarily. Only a few hours before their Parish Adopts Georgia Mission Minneapolis (NC)-- Concern for Catholics elsewhere has led to the adoption of a small rural mission parish in Georgia by St. Thomas the Apostle parish here. Through the church mission guild, St. Thomas parish has pled- ged $2,000 a year or more, to supplement the small income of the Sacred Heart mission church in Waynesboro, Ga` WORLD'SRADIoFINEST Em HEARING t // AIDS ....

Father Wag- ner had written an article In the same parish bulletin on con- scientious objection to entering the Brazilian armed services. Father Rupiper, the pastor of the parish, said: "Anyone who speaks out on social justice in Brazil is labeled as a subversive agitator. All types of fear tactics are used to maintain the people in their slavery." Father Grams is resting at the home of his parents in su Glendale.
