Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co. 419 West Capitol LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS dral Parish I Celebrates 95th Birthday | Little Rock.--Mr. W. H. Jarrett, 1514 Main Street, will celebrate his 95th birthday on Sunday, May 16. Mr. Jarrett is the oldest native born convert m the state, and the oldest member of Cathedral Parish. Mr. Jarrett was converted to the Catholic faith in 1868, when he was living with his parents on a farm near Pocahontas. "I never saw any Catholics until 1856 or 1857, when Fatler Hogan brought down an Irish colony, and settled in Southeastern Missouri. They had built a road down from St. Louis to Iron Mountain, and were given this land for the work. They were driven out when the Civil War began. This was our introduction to Catholicity." After the war in 1867, Mr. Jar- rett tells of seeing a Catholic )riest. "It was like a circusthe )eople turned out in full force to ;ee. I believe the priest's name was Father D'Art. He brought a steam boat down with him." When the Rev. James P. O'Kean came to Pocahontas he set about preaching to the few Catholics in the vicinity, and to the non-Ca- tholics, and soon baptized Mr. Jar- rett. Becoming a Catholic in those days was a step to consider well, for upon his conversion Mr. Jar- rett lost his job in the store where he worked. He had been promised work in Louisville so he decided to move there, how- ever before he. could leave a friend suggested that he come to Little Rock first. It was in Little Rock that Mr. Jarrett became acquainted with Bish6p Fitzgerald. "I could al- ways borrow money from him. He lived in a little bit of a house, and I used to go into the alley and walk in the back door. I would always go over, and fill up the lamps with coal oil. "I knew Father Pat (Rev. Pat- rick Reilly) very well, too. He was the rector of the Cathedral. He died of a broken heart because he was sent back to Ireland." After Father Pat left, Father O'Kean, an old friend of Mr. Jar- rett's, was made rector. Mr. Jarrett can tell sgme inter- eating tales of the earlySchurch in Arkansas. He served Mass for the Bishop quite often, and accom- panied him on sick calls. Many trips were made on mule-back. Once, when Mr. Jarrett was rid- ing a big horse, the Bishop's hack broke down, and he took the Bishop up behind him, and road him out of the woods. "I'm going to give you another name--Chris- tr'n' Vird ::reEtccfelsnCYme to Little Rock, there were only 6 priests in the Diocese, Father Pat at the Cathedral, Father O'Kean at Pocahontas, two Father Smith's, one at Helena, and one at Fort Smith, Father McGowan, New Gascony, and Father Garrity of Hot Springs. "When we would get a message that some one was sick, the Bishop would say, "We']l have to go. Father Pat is too old vnd Father Garrity couldn't get here on account "of high water." "Once when Bishop was hunt- ing for a hotel he went into a saloon. The Irish proprietor was. shocked', and hustled him out, and into the hotel. His Excellency was not the least upset about it how- ever." Mr. Jarrett said there were about 400 Catholics in the Cathedral parish when he came to Little Rock. The first Cathedral was located on 2nd and Center Streets, where the Gleason Hotel is now. Mr. Jarrett worked for Laffer- ty's Mammoth Store when he first moved here, and then for Blasses, and at many places before he opened his own store. He was a Charter member of the Knights of Columbus "in this state. He took. an active part in city and county affairs, serving as a volunteer fireman for 25 years subject to 24 hour a day duty. He "gpent 18 years serving Little Rock faithfully as an alderman on the City Council. Mr. Jarrett is one of the few Confederate Veterans left. He was able to attend the reunion in Gettysberg in 1938. He had joined the Confederate forces at the age of 17 as a cavalryman. On his 90th birthday Mr. Jar- rett received greeting cards, tele- Fr. Stanowski Honored By St. Winand's Parish MeGehee.  The Roy. Charles Stanowski was honored on his feast day, April 26 by St. Winand's School and Parish at McGehee. The day began with a High Mass, the pupils of the school re- ceiving Holy Communion in a body. A feature of the music of the Mass was a violin duet played by Mary Lynn White and Mary Gale Stuart. In the evening an entertainment was presented in the auditorium of St. Winand's School. Ladies of the parish were the gracious hostesses. An allegorical playlet, entitled 'The Garden of Prayer', was pre- sented by the smaller children. Two songs, entitled 'The Green Cathedral, and 'God Bless You', were rendered by Naiomi Kerr, Mary Gale Stuart, and Mary Lynn White. Refreshments were served buf- fet style from a table covered by an exquisite crocheted table cloth and decorated with an arrange- ment of pastel Iris as a center- piece. Guests of the evening were the Roy. John Murphy and the Sisters of the Dermott Hospital, the sold- iers from the Relocation Camp at Rowher, and the members of the parish. --Guardian Photo Mr. W. H. Jarrett quainted with the clergy of recent years, however, he is a very close friend of His Excellency. He re- calls very vividly the time when Bishop Morris came to the Dio- cese in June, 1906. His interest in the Cathedral Parish naturally..di- rected him to this acquaintance- ship with the Most Reverend Bishop, although his active parti- cipation in the work of the church was somewhat curtailed with his; advancing years. Mr. J'arrett does know and rememb'ers the priests who have brought the Holy Eucharist to him. g I I II I COMPLIMENTS OF St. Anthony's Hospital MORRILTON, ARK.
