PAGE 8 THE GUARDIAN, JULY "19, 1974 For Short-Term Pastoral Duty Extension Seeks Retired Priests for Home Missions Chicago -- A call was issued this week to retired priests of the U.S. to consider volun- teering for limited service in the American home missions. The call is part of a new national plan to help alleviate the shortage of priests in the home missions, according to Father Joseph A. Cusack, president of the Catholic Church Extension Society.

Mr. and Mrs. Joe A. RolE, in charge of recruiting for the movement which is part of the Diocesan Marriage Enrichment Program, revealed that well over 100 couples and a score of clergy have now taken part in Marriage Encounter. "Sociologists, in noting the broad social changes that have taken place in our world in the past fifty years," RolE noted, "are questioning the future of marriage as an institution. If you consider that better than 50 per cent of marriages in Arkansas end in failure, you agreed that the weekend is a time when a couple has an opportunity to work together to look at and better understand their lives together in the Sacrament of Marriage. They said Marriage Encounter is designed to make good marriages better through improved communication, unity, and understanding of how marriage plays a vital role in the Christian community. Three Marriage Encounter Weekends are scheduled for the remainder of the year for the Diocese, two this fall in Little Rock and one at Subiaco. Mr. and Mrs. ROlE said that in ad- dition to application forms' appearing in .The Guardian, information and application forms are .available from all pastors. Called "Operation Resident," the plan will make use of the talents and energies of retired priests who wish to maintain a level of apostolic work. "Operation Resident" will be administered by the Extension Society where requests for priests will be catalogued by diocese. Retired priests who wish to donate their services in the home missions may contact Extension and receive a list of mission dioceses that need their help. In this manner, Extension will act as a national clearing house to place retired priests in limited assignments in the home missions, including the Diocese of Little Rock. The mission assignments can be set up for two weeks, two months, two years or longer. They can be limited in scope to whatever duties the volunteer priest wishes. All details of the assignment are worked out between the retired priest and the bishop of the mission diocese. "Operation Resident" has been set up to help both the retired priest and the mission dioceses," said Father Cusack. "The retired priest can use this work to make the best use of his time, experience and talents. And in manycases hispresence can make the difference bet- ween a living and dying mission. "For those with limited time to give, spending a few weeks in a mission parish to allow the pastor to take a vacation would be a great help," he added. All bishops of the mission dioceses have been apprised of "Operation Resident" and are giving it their wholehearted endorsement and support. Retired priests wishing to donate their services to the home missions may write Operation Resident, The Catholic Church Extension Society, 1307 S. Wabash Ave., Chicago, Ill. 60605.
