ARKANSAS CAIHOUC ]LINE 30, 1991 PAGE 7 Baltimore- Natural forces battexed the Philippines recently, disrupting thoumnds of lives and forcing up to 100,000 people to seek shelter from volcanic eruptions, a ty- phoon, earthquakes and numerous mudslides. Mt. Pinatubo spewed glowing rocks up to 25 kilometers high and sent ash and sand flying as far away as the capital of Manila. River water has been contaminated as far as 75 kilometers from the volcano, and sulfu- ric gases from the volcano, mixing with the a .tmosphere, have created the threat of acid ram, Four earth tremors affected the area around ML Pinatubo, the first reaching 3 on the Richter scale. To the south of Ma- nila, Mt. Taal also threatens to erupt. There were no predictions of when this will occur, but seismic activity has been reported since March 12th. ML Taal last erupted in 1965, killing 192 people. Catholic Relief Services (CRS) responded immediately through its office in the Phifip- pines, sending assessment teams to the di- saster rites, and committing food assistance. An initial $22,900 in emergency funding was also made available, and additional fund- ing will be committed as soon as reports from the assessment teams are completed. In the meanfirn , CRS is accepting do- nations for those affected by the disaster. Contributions can be sent to: CRS, P.O. Box 17220, Baltimore, MD 21297-0304; Attn: Philippines Emergency Fund. In China- Church becomes Hong Kong (CNS)- A Cathofic church in Zunyi city, southwestern China, would be celebrating its 125th anniversary this year if it had not been turned into a Red Army m~uIn. Built in 1866, the church is now called "Former Site of the Red Army's General Political DepartmenL" The former church displays items and information on the Chi- nese Workers' and Peasants' Red Army, which was led in 1928-37 by the Chinese Communist Party. A Catholic in Zunyi recalled that the church used to indude a presbytery and staff rooms for teachers of the r Catholic grade hooL After the founding of the People's Re- public of China, the government converted the church premises into an exhibition room. In December 1983, a bureau of China's Nfinistry of Culture designated the church- mmed-musetma an area for state protection. In exchange for the church premises, the government offered the local church, which is under the auspices of the slate-approved Chinese Catholic Patriotic Assodation, a plot of land with a house elsewhere in the dty. Later, the government also provided $57,000 for a new church. The construction of the new church, started in 1987, took three years to complete. Currently, there are around 1,000 Catho- lics in the Zunyi area. Their parish priest is Father Xia Iaahou, who spent 20 years in jaa. S d,v, June 3o-12:05 Mass, Cathedral of St. Andrew, Little Rock.
