CRS Aid Reaching Two Million Poles Washington (NC) -- Humanitarian aid to Poland sponsored by Catholic Relief Services is reaching two million people each month, the president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops said. The president, Archbishop John R. Roach of St. Paul- Minneapolis, said the "remarkable success" of the CRS aid program for Poland "has once again reflected great credit on the church in the United States." By Sept. 30, he added, CRS will have shipped a total of 140-million pounds of food, commodities and relief supplies to Poland, with the aid reaching primarily the ill, the aged and children. CRS, the overseas aid agency of American Catholics, is a division of the U.S. Catholic Conference, the public policy arm of the U.S. bishops. !

O. will host a Rosary service for all unborn children Sunday, July 18, at 7 . P.M. at Christ The King Church, 4000 North Redney Parham Raed. The Rosary will be led by Jubilarians' Homily Br Cites Love, Faith Conway Shopping G(u, ; the n( Fort Smith - "God as a loving Father and the faithful, loving response of the 10 Sisters marking jubilees" was the theme of the homily of Right Rev. Abbot Raphael De.Salvo, O.S.B., V.F., at the recent festive Eucharist at St. Scholastica convent here. Noting that their combined years of service added up to 540 years and that Sister Louis Zink, the 75-year jubilarian, was also from Spielerville, now Subiaco, as were last year's two 75-year jubilarians, Sisters Flavia and Gregory Kehres, the Abbot enumerated the ways God's loving care has been manifested in the lives of each: Baptism and the other sacraments, their vows, their parents, teachers, their religious community and the people with whom they have worked. He compared their response to that of Samuel, his readiness when he said, "Speak, Lord, for your ser- vant is listening." The Abbot said that living out the call to religious life is far from simple and that it has to be lived out day to day, year to year. "As time goes on," he said to the jubilarians, "the signs of God's love become clearer, and as women of faith, you know why you are here." While sympathetic to the pain caused by the changes in religious life over the years, he stressed thai Benedictine religious life is essentially the same today as it was when these women entered the community. He praised the Sisters for their influence in the Diocese of Arkansas as they engaged in various professions in the Church. He expressed his gratitude for the "grace" they are for the Church in Arkansas, for the sign of the Father's love they are to him and the others attending. "The jubilarians call us to a deeper faith and spirit of prayer," he said, "they are a sign to all of a total, joyful giving of ourselves in whatever way God calls us." The Abbot encouraged them to continue to "Prefer nothing whatever to Christ," ac- cording to the call given by St. Benedict in his Rule. . ," addi Jubilarians were Sister[ L r i--s sup ,.s Z00k years00 I Ottilia Schmucki, Lioba they ce ral Bruck, Aquinas Randel and |/L__ ApPLIANE FURNITURE, mtmorea Majella Adams, 60 years; Sisters Norbert Hoelting, II HARKRIDER & 2rid ST., CONWAY, ARI Patrick Cingolani, Clarine |'V' Phone AC (501) 327-65rdiaa !

USCC Supports Safety Sabbath Chicago (NC) -- The U.S. Catholic Conference has expressed its support for the National Safety Council's National Safety Sabbath to be held next Feb. 11-14, the Chicago-based council an- nounced. Announcing the con- ference's support, Vincent L. Tofany, council president, said the guiding principle of the National Safety Sabbath is that "if you care for someone, you will help them avoid accidents through instruction and example." Tofany cited asking someone to use a safety belt in an automobile as an example of caring for that person's well-being. The non- denominational National Safety Sabbath is held an- nually during Valentine's Day weekend. Churches are asked to devote regular services to the teaching of safety at that time.
