PAGE 8 THE GUARDIAN, AUG. 23, 1974 Wed 50 Years Mr. and Mrs. Leo IMe, above, of Paris were feted recently in celebration of their Golden Wedding anniversary. Father Paul Hoedebeck, O.S.B., celebrated a jubilee Mass in St. Joseph's Church. Grandchildren Cathy and Betty Ullrich and Robert Stehle, all of Little Rock, and James Ihle of Subiaco presented the Mass gifts. Servers were Jerome and Timothy Stehle of Little Rock and Joseph lhle of Subiaco. Children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of Mr. and Mrs. lhle served a dinner in St. Joseph's School cafeteria for relatives and close friends. A reception followed, then a supper. Mrs. Ihle is the former Bertha Litsch, daughter of the late Charles and Laura Litsch of Paris. Mr. lhle is the son of the late John and Josephine lhle of Paris. They were married July 1, 1924 in St. Joseph's Church. Christian Charity Sisters Mark 125th Wilmette, Ill. -- The Sisters of Christian Charity, who staff many schools in the U.S. in- cluding St. Augustine's, North Little Rock, Ark., and do a variety of other apostolic work, are celebrating the 125th an- niversary of the founding of their congregation. The work of the Sisters throughout the United States, as well as in Rome, Germany and South America, reflects the spirit of the foundress, Mother Pauline yon Mallinckrodt, in its outstanding characteristic -- charity. Mother Pauline was solicitous for the poor and englected of Paderborn, Ger- many. With her father's con- sent, as a young girl,, she established a society for the sick and poor, using the wealth Anniversary companions, became the first Sisters of Christian Charity. The Congregation flourished in Germany until the so-called Kulturkampf. Many of Mother Pauline's schools were taken, so she responded to many foreign calls for Sisters. Her first mission was begun in New Orleans, Louisiana, where the Sisters are still teaching in several schools. Although other kinds of apostolic work are being pur- sued by the Sisters today, education still remains the Congregation's chief apostolate. At the Generalate in Rome, the Sisters have large modern quarters for tourists from Germany and the United States. Among the new and relevant As Academic Year Approaches Many Scheduled Programs Keep Diocesan, Education Office Busy By Sister Fides Gough. O.P. Diocesan Coordinator for Teacher Training Programs "Back to school" is a somewhat frenzied activity referred to by many as "Sep- tember School Daze." Ob- serving the activity in the Religious Education Office, we are inclined to say the Sep- tember School Daze arrived in August. Most people would apply the phrase "Back-to-School" to the Kindergarten through college crowd. For those in the Diocesan Religious Education Office,the Back-to-School state of mind applies to a much wider group. Activities involved are more varied than those covered by formal in-school classes. High on the list of priorities in the diocesan office is the teacher certification program. Its purpose is to set up a series of teacher training sessions through which many volunteer lay teachers can obtain a certificate making them eligible to teach religion anywhere in the diocese. Planning for this program has been going on almost a year. It will begin to operate im- mediately and will eventually have a beneficial influence on hundreds of children. These are students who attend public schools and get their formal training in parish religious education. About 1,100 of these children are preparing to return to classes in early September. Pastors and a corps of volunteer teachers are organizing the program. Special age groups call for special preparation. A number of pre-school teachers from parishes of the Little Rock and North Little Rock Deaneries meet frequently in the diocesan office. Their aim is to sift through all the pre-school materials received and set up a year's program for five-year- olds of the diocese. A special program is also programs, assistance will be given to teachers in setting up schedules for the year. At these workshops, high school students of each parish will be en- couraged to assist teachers in making plans for the year. For adults, the best developed program at present is one in Scripture Study. Sparked by the enthusiasm of Fred and Tammie Woell, the classes will begin Sept. 9 and will continue for 12 weeks. They will be held on Monday evenings in Fit- zgerald Hall, St. John's Center, at 7:30 P.M. Lectures will be given on the Acts of the Apostles by Fathers A1 Sehneider, James Mancini and Jerome Kodell. Enrollment Closed Registrations have reached capacity, and those who apply now are being put on a waiting list. This series of classes will be followed by another to begin Jan. 13. This series will be on the Gospel of Saint John. For the Fall, Joe and Alice Rolf are recruiting couples for Marriage Encounter. The first encounter is scheduled for the week-end of September 13-15 at St. John's Center, Little Rock. The last Encounter for the year in the Little Rock area will be the week-end of October 25-27. The final Encounter for 1974 is planned for Nov. 15-17 at Coury House, New Subiaco Abbey. Frank and Lois Feist have well laid plans for Pre-Cana Con- ferences. The next seminar will begin Sept. 29, and will run for three consecutive Sundays. All couples planning marriage in November, December of January should attend this conference in Fletcher Lounge at St. John's Center from 2:00 to 5:00 P.M. Th e registration fee will be $3 per person. The Catechumenate is a program for Catholics and others who wish to study the Catholic religion. Those who make application will be received into the Church at the end of the series. A get- acquainted session will be held Sunday afternoon, Sept. 8 at St. Andrew's Cathedral Hall, 822 Louisiana Street at 4 P.M. Classes will be held each Monday evening from 8 to 9:30 at Fitzgerald Hall, St. John Center. These classes will be conducted by a team made up of Fathers John Oswald, A1 Schneider, James Mancini, Richard Strock and Sister Fides. The program is under the Sister FideS direction of Father Torres. Further information I of these programs is by calling 663-9435. Frances Flower Shop 1222 W. 6th St. - 372-2203 Little Rock, Ark.
