The first Catholic Youth Ministry convention in 1949 included a formal dance. Bishop ordains 12 men for diaconate By Malea Waiters EDITOR i Without sa ug a word, Bishop AndrewJ. McDomdd imposed his hands on the heads of 12 married men and called upon the Holy Spirit to ordain the men as deacons for the Diocese of Little Rock. Bishop McDonald said the imposition of hands is "no empty gesture." "I will release the power and the gift of the Holy Spirit upon you," he said in his homily. The overflow crowd on Pentecost Sunday, May 31 at the Cathedral of St. Andrew included the families and friends from the men's home parishes. As a sym- bol of the wives' important role in the diaconate pro- gram, the women assisted their husbands in putting on the stole and dalmatic following consecration. Those ordained were Charles E. Andrus, Warren; Warren Baldwin III, Litde Rock; Raymond Brust, Rogers; John J. Burns, Fort Smith; Roy Goetz, Pocahontas; Dfiniel Hennessey III, Litde Rock; Jo- seph Kramer, Van Buren; Laurence Lipsmeyer, Hot Springs Village;John Marschewski, North Litde Rock; Richard Papini, RusselMlle; Richard Patterson, Litde Rock; and Frank Zanoff, Fairfield Bay.
