' who made sacrificial gifts to the collection at Christmas throughout our diocese. The funds collected are used to help sick, infii'm and retired priests. Your act of gratitude to these priests for their years of dedicated service has already passed $115,000.00. The report is not yet com- plete. During this week, we also paid tribute to those who passed through death to life. The first was Sister Mary Matthias, an Incarnate Word Sister at St. Michael's Hospital, Texarkana. She was more than 70 years old and spent many years giving service to the sick in the Texarkana area. In her latter years, she cared for the sacristy. Father Gruff recalled her kindness to him when he was just a young seminarian. Unfortunately, the bad weather on Tuesday prevented me from traveling to Texarkana. During the week, we learned that the former Abbot of St. Gregory's at Shawnee had passed through death to life. He is Abbot Robert G. Dodson. He was indeed a very gentle spirit and one who was universally loved. May he rest in peace. A hero of the Lord died in Joliet, Illinois. He is the retired Ordinary, Bishop Romeo Blanchette. For several years, he has suffered from Lou Gehrig's disease. For more than a year, he could move nothing in his body except his eyelids. With courage and with patience, he lived the life of the suffering Jesus upon the cross. Gently and quietly, he passed through death to life this week. On Saturday, in spite of the bitter cold, I was able to travel to Holy Angels Convent in Jonesboro. With me were Mr. Norman Schmuck and Sister Henrietta. We celebrated the passing through death to life of Sister Theodore, one of the early members of the American community. She had come to Arkansas from the mountains of Switzerland some fifty eight years ago. ON SUNDAY afternoon, I relished the opportunity to join hundreds of men, women and children who are devoted to the cause of Pro-Life. We hardly noticed the bitter cold. We marched Capitol Street professional fund-raising and public relations firm with headquarters in New York and regional offices m Arlington Va., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Boston, Mass., in the person of Nor- bert J. Griffin, has been retained to direct the program. Griffin, with more than 23 years of professional ex- perience in all areas of fund- raising, particularly in the South, directed the capital campaign for Holy Souls parish, Pulaski Heights, Little Rock, in September, 1966. The campaign exceeded its minimum goal of $350,000 by $75,000. Funds raised went toward construction of Holy Souls' present church. The campaign has been divided into three definite phases of solicitation keyed to attracting financial support through the designation of an item in the new buildings, all or part of the structures, as "Living Memorials" in memory of a person, living or deceased. Each phase has a definite financial goal and an established minimum level of gift. The Advance Memorial Phase is keyed to selective solicitation in which a possible six to nine persons of substantial means and known generous support of the parish are visited by the pastor and laymen for pledges ranging upward from a base of $2,000. The intermediate Memorial Phase is when one-third to one-half of the parish is visited for Memorial pledges starting at $750 upwards and the third, or wind-up segment of solicitation, when in ad- dition to Memorials, parishioners can donate a Benefactor Gift, the minimum gift sought for the drive. The last phase then will introduce the beginning of the Continuation, or long-range development, solicitation activity. During the sub- sequent three-year period when pledges are being redeemed, the more active The Building Committee, appointed by the Parish Council, has been closely involved in all aspects of construction and design of the parochial complex. Members include John E. Davitt, chairman; Earl K. Vickers, Jim Barrett, Michael T. O'Brien, Ronald R. Clayton, Duane W. Meyer, Bea Lock, from Louisiana to the State Capitol. At the end of the March, the heads of various Pro-Life groups throughout Arkansas were recognized. Professor Rice of the University of Notre Dame gave us a stirring talk on the cause for the rights of the unborn. We are grateful to all who promote the cause of Pro- Life throughout the land. Your friend, Andrew J. McDonald Bishop of Little Rock Catholic Buys Out X-Rated Theater Baltimore (NC) -- A Catholic builder bought an X- rated movie theater located near a Catholic elementary school "to get rid of it" after picketing by area residents and legal action by the city failed to close it. Henry J. Knott, president of the Glenlo Corp., bought Cinema X, located three doors away from St. Patrick's Elementary School in Baltimore, from the 303 Corp. of Miami for more than $70,000. Father Blair Raum, pastor of St. Patrick's parish, said about 30 members of the Clean Up Broadway (CUB) "committee marched in vic- tory outside the theater the night of the sale and watched as it was boarded up. Loretta Jackson, E. Joseph Fudge and Carl W. Gibes. As envisioned by Courtney W. Crenshaw, architect, Father Kordsmeier and the Building Committee, the church rectory and multi- purpose facility will be of contemporary design. The church will be centered between the rectory and the multi-purpose hall. It will incorporate in its concepts and appointments essential elements which conform to liturgical reforms arising from the Second Vatican Council. A prominent feature of the exterior of the ddifice will be a high soaring light tower which will be clearly visible in any direction. Exterior walls and design will harmonize with those of the adjoining buildings. A system of walks will be built to facilitate the flow of pedestrian traffic between the church, parking area and the other units of the complex. The main body, or core of the church, will contain the sanctuary, nave, choir, baptistry, altars of sacrifice and reservation, pulpit and lectern. The location of the vesting sacristy adjacent to "Our Lady Chapel" and sanctuary is in accordance with the processional will be easily seen from any place in the interior. The baptistry is positioned to aid the witnessing of baptism by the congregation from the vantage points of their pews. The body of the church has been designed to create a feeling of oneness -- of nearness to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. No seat will be more than 50 feet from the Altar of Sacrifice nor will visibility be obstructed in any manner. Outstanding features of the plan will be the artful use of natural lighting and glass throughout the interior. The chapel, an integral part of the building, will provide facilities for auxiliary religious services such as daily Masses and possibly small weddings and funerals. The church will be centrally heated and air-conditioned and will seat 450 persons. The rectory, designed as a single-story structure, will contain parish administrative offices, room for a visiting priest, consultation offices, a meeting room, record storage, dining room, living room, reception area, waiting rooms, kitchen and laundry. The rectory will be easily reached from the church by a "breezeway" or covered walk, It will replace a trailer which has been employed as a rectory since 1971. The multi-purpose hall, an integral part of the entire building in which the church forms a major segment, is designed to satisfy the need for additional classroom space lacking in the present building and more area and facilities for CCD, in- Baptizes Continued from Pg. 2 music and a concelebrated Mass. The Pope said he follows "with particular concern the religious life" of Latin American countries. Pope John Paul told the priest-students that he hoped their academic training would help them "to know to at- tribute the highest priority to the option on behalf of the most needy, the workers, the peasants, the native peoples, the alienated and the Afro- Americans." Following the after-dinner concert, the Pope spoke privately to each student before returning to the Vatican at about 9 P.M. The Vatican issued no in- formation on the Pope's private meetings the previous day with Cheysson, Ar- chbishop Marcinkus and Bishop Marshall. In a meeting with French journalists in Rome, Cheysson, the first representative of French President Francois Mit- terrand's Socialist govern- ment to meet with the Pope, said that France shares with the Holy See a concern for the violation of human rights ' under martial law in Poland. Among the other topics discussed at the hour-long meeting was the Palestinian situation, Vatican sources said. Archbishop Marcinkus' audience with the Pope was believed to center on ad- ministrative details handled by the archbishop in his dual role as pro-president of the Pontifical Commission for the Vatican City State and president of the Vatican bank. Bishop Marshall, who heads a U.S. bishops' committee studying U.S. seminaries at the Vatican's request, met with the Pope privately Jan. 9 and had a second papal audience Jan. 11, ac- companied by U.S. William Cardinal Baum, prefect of the Vatican Congregation for Catholic Education, which has jurisdiction over seminaries. I 'Father Foxhole' Of WWII Dies Oceanside, Calif. (NC) -- Msgr. Francis W. Kelly, 71, the "Father Foxhole" of World War II, who hit the beaches with the Marines in the Pacific campaign, died Jan. 9 in Tri-City Hospital in Oceanside of a heart attack. A native of Philadelphia and an alumnus of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Overbrook, Pa., he was or- dained in 1937 and joined the Navy as a chaplain three months after'the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. He participated in landings with the 1st Marine Division on Tulagi, Guadalcanai, Tarawa and Okinawa. Wounded at Tarawa, he was awarded the Purple Heart and the Legion of Merit.
