THE GUARDIAN; JANUARY 10, 1969 PAGE 7 Orleans Archdiocese Use Religious Brothers Ease Priest Shortage Orleans (NC) -- In ayear's Archbishop Philip of New Orleans dis- a variety of topics -- more use of Brothers to re- priest shortage; inte- of laymen into administra- in the archdiocese; re- :ation of the archdiocese; and sermons. :ling the priest shortage, Hannah said he has the Holy See for special would be given to s Brothers who wouldper- a great extent the fac- are being envisioned rmanent deacons." archbishop added he hopes FIRST I Bank Locations ino Sixth and Garrison ray 71 South & Jenny Lind Z000 Midland Blvd. [Idlng 310, Fort Chaffee IRT SMITH, ARK. |! ,,.D,R B }achine Shop lrankshaft Grinding ,IN,  mEELm SU 2-z6ao ort Smith to make better use of the varied talents of Sisters in the archdio- cese in helping with some paro- chial duties. There are somenec- essary and essential tasks in the parish Sisters can perform, and "perform well," the archbishop said, and they would be trained for these duties. The archbishop also said, al- though lay theologians in parishes are effective, they are also ex- pensive. One solution to theprob- lem of help for priests in par- ishes, he said, would be to make use of former seminarians, at least on a part-time basis. Regarding Catholic schools, Archbishop Hannan said the schools are in financial difficul- ties, but he does not foresee clos- ing them. "We consider the atmosphere of the schools to be very impor- tant in forming character," the archbishop said. "We believe that the spirit of a philosophy of life, a religious philosophy of life, is extremely important to the character formation of the children." The archbishop said this in- fluence is not limited just to the times when the children have re- ligious education, but permeates the entire climate at the school. Projects being studied now, he said, would provide better coor- dination of Catholic schools in certain areas so special courses might be provided for some of the children in all the schools in a given area. With regard to adult education, the archbishop pointed out that the big method of instructing people is still by the sermon on Sunday "Now to me," the archbishop said, "we should lay much great- B FOR ALL OCCASIONS FLOWER SHOP 619 South 14th Street PHONE SUnset 3.0:123 ,rt Smith, Arkansas FORT SMITH OFFICE SUPPLY 16-18 South 6th Street HEADQUARTERS FOR OFFICE FURNITURE AND EQUIPMENT Phone SUnset 2-0311 Fort Smith Ark. 4.75% CURRENT ANNUAL DIVIDEND Astronaut at Sunday Mass 0NC Photo) Astronaut William Anders with his wife, Valerie, and daughter Gayle, are welcomed to Sunday Mass at the Houston Space Center by Father Larry Carney, following Anders' early morn- ing arrival from Hawaii with his fellow-moon- circlers, Frank Borman and James Lovell. er emphasis on a good course of instructions which would be prea- ched by the use of the homily." The difficulty, he said, is adap- ting a course to community- wide needs. On a province-wide scale, plans are already underway for formula- ting a course of sermons on Church unity to be delivered in all dio- ceses in the ecclesiastical pro- vince of New Orleans. There is a massive effort unde r- way to restructure parish or- ganizations in the archdiocese so as to give lay persons a greater opportunity for an effective, sat- isfying role in Church activities, he noted. Archbishop Hannan said "the most important thing for the laity is that they must operate outside the Church, not only inside the Church." "I think that the chief focus by Catholics now should be on their role outside parish organi- zations," he said. "We have a great need for them in parish organizations, but you don't move the community, you don't form the community, unless you reallyhave an influence spreading from out of your parish structure into the community at large." Archbishop Hannah said he views his own role as more of the teacher and pastor. "I would say today the empha- sis should probably be on the bis- hop as the teacher, simply be- cause there are so manyquestions Russ inn O rthodox Slate Peace Talks Bonn (NC) -- Russian Ortho- dox Patriarch Alexei of Moscow and all Russia has invited the heads of all the world's religious denominations to a peace con- ference in Moscow July 1-4, 1969, it was reported here. The aim of the conference is to stimulate the members of re- ligious bodies throughout the world to work for international peace. The plan for the conference was worked out at a meeting of the heads of the Soviet Union's religious denominations in the Za- gorsk monastery near Moscow. In addition to Patriarch Alexei, other signers of the invitation included apostolic administrator of Kaunas, Lithuania, an Estonian Lutheran archbishop, and leaders of the Moslem and Buddhist re- ligious communities in the Soviet Union. I that now arise," he said. The final answer to the prob- lem of birth control has not yet been found, the archbishop said. He added: "I feel that we are just at the beginning of medical research on the whole field of genetics and fertility. "I certainly support the Holy Father's statement in Humanae Vitae and I am amazed at some people who have criticized it and who seem to feel that medical science has reached the end of its knowledge in this matter," he de- clared. The problem of race relations must be solved mainly bywhites, Archbishop Herman said, because "they are largely in charge of society." But "every person of every race shares responsibility in this cause .. I am optimistic for the simple reason that when people face a question there is always the feeling that they will solve it," he declared.
