She entered the Society of Mis- sionary Catechists in,February, 1933, and made her f/l'st profes- sion three years later. Her final vows were pronounced in 1941. Since then, she Has been stationed in Gary, Indiana, Redlands, Calif- ornia, San Angelo, Texas, .and' Tulare, California. She writes that there is another Arkansas Catechist in the Society, Catechist Helen Sullivan, of DeQueen. She was a member of St. Barbara's Parish, and a grad- uate of Sacred Heart Academy Texarkana, before she entered the Society in 1931. She made her final profession in 1940, and is now at Coachella, California. The work of a Catechist is very interesting, and that of the Tulare guess are very progressive, and are dairy owners and the Mexi-' cans find plenty of work in the fruil orchards. Since the people are scattered over a large rural area, there is no parochial school, and the Ca- techists go to the rural and city public schools and teach Catech- ism in the afternoon after school or during the noon hour. Ar- rangements are made with some nearby family to use the yard, or porch, or barn garage. Because attendance varies in the schools, some of the classes have ten children, and some have enrollments of fifty or more. The work of a Catechist de- mands knowledge outside of the classroom, and Catechist Quinn states that it is necessary to know how to drive, and be able to change a tire in case of flats. Afternoon Mass Held For WAACs At Monticello Monticello.Three hundred and fifty Catholic W.A.A.C's enrolled at Camp Monticello, Monticello, Ark., went to Mass yesterday, Ascension Thursday, at 5:00 o'clock in the afternoon. The Rev. John E. Murphy, celebrated this evening Mass at the Recreation Hall, on the Post. Father Mur- phy of Dermott received his ap- pointment as Auxiliary Chaplain around the first of April when Monticello was made a training center for W.A.A.C.'s. This basic training school for the Women's Auxiliary Army 'Corps was opened only a couple months ago. The Monticello camp was originally built for war prisoners but recently was taken over the W.A.A.C's. Ordinarily Mass is held on Sun- day morning at 11:30 but the training schedule makes it more convenient for an afternoon Mass on this Holy Day of Obligation. There will also be Mass on Fri- day afternoon at the same hour for First Friday. Faithfully assisting Father Murphy for some lime as Altar Boys are Lt. los. Thompson of Indianallis, Camp Adjutant, and Lt. John Powers of Boston, Sup- ply Officer of the Post Hospital.
