In celebration of Catholic Education Week, the St. Joseph, Conway, Parent Teacher organization sponsored a bookmark design contest. Scott Spra- gue, senior, and Sarah Walter, second- grader, won the grand prize in the high school and elementary divisions, respec- tively. The winning designs were made into bookmarks and distributed to each student and teacher. Established four years ago, there are now 125 members in 11 rotating groups in The Nocturnal Adoration Society at Christ The King parish, Little Rock. Each member spends one hour in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament between each First Friday of the month at 7 AM until Saturday at 4:45 PM. The society is an intemational organi- zation. Founded in Rome in 1810, it has more than 300 active branches in the U.S. Its purposes are to unite the members in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament during the hours of the night; to deepen the faith, love and Christian commitment of the members in and through the Person of Christ present and active in the Blessed Sacra- ment; and to pray for the needs of the Church and the world.

A Holocaust survivor finds himself married to three women. Everybody Wins - Nick Nolte, Debra Winger. Suspense - R (profanity, sex- ual situations, obscenity). Everybody wins except whoever goes to see this nonsense. Internal Affairs - Richard Gere, Andy Garcia. Action/Thriller - R (lot of obscenity, extreme violence). A very intense movie about Internal Affairs tracking a bad cop. My Left Foot - Daniel Day-Lewis. Drama - R (profarfity, lots of strong language, adult situations). True story of poet/painter Christy Brown who overcame Cerebral Palsy. The acting and story are marvelous, but beware of the language. Ski Patrol - Ray Walston, Martin Mull. Comedy - PG (sexual innuendo, some language, crude humor, one use of profanity). Some great ski footage, but even the kids will be bored with this lame comedy about an evil land developer trying to steal a ski resort. For All Mankind - Documentary. The whole family can view this beau- tifully made film about Nell Armstrong's flight to the moon. letter of thanks From Archbishop Quinn Little Rock Bishop Andrew J. McDonald recently recited the following let- My Dear Brother Bishops: When I appealed to the body of Bishops at our November meeting for a National Collection for Earthquake Recovery in the Dioceses of Monterey, Oakland, San Jose and the Archdiocese of San Francisco, I did not know how immensely helpful such a collection would be. The xepresentatives of our Charities and Finance Offices have been meeting to assess the needs and how the National Collection can best benefit the entire recovery proc- ess. They are developing a formula to divide the funds for the immediate, direct social services, the rebuilding and repair of churches, and the short-term and long-term housing programs which the Church can effectively address. I write now for two special requests. First, we are able to most effectively and efficiently do this work by knowing as soon as possible howmuch money is available for it. Please ask those who process your collections to forward them just as soon as possible to the National Catholic Disaster Relief Com- mittee at Catholic Charities, USA, 1 19 "F" Street, NW, Washington, DC, 20004. Secondly, the outpouring of financial assistance, prayers, letters of support and concern from you, my Brother Bishops, your staffs and the generous Catholic people have been truly over- whelming. May I ask you to express through your diocesan letters, newspa- pers, or announcements our deepest and most sincere gratitude to every individual who has responded to this need with acts of charity in so many forms. The season of Christmas, the virtues of charity and sharing and the tradition of generosity by our Catholic people have been unceasing since the Oct. 17 earthquake and we will never be able to adequately express our deep and sincere gratitude to the countless individuals who came to our assistance. With sentiments of my continuing esteem and gratitude, I am Sincerely yours in Christ, John R. Quinn Archbishop of San Francisco
