Tyler Little Rock, Ark. Dear Friends in Christ: Appropriate and timely is the theme this year for Catechetical Sunday, "Welcctning the Lord." In faith, we welcome the Lord when we are kind to family members, to neighbors, to friends, to strangers. Sacramentally, we welcome the Lord as we seek forgiveness of sin in confession; as we encounter Jesus in the Mass, in Holy Communion, in the tabernacle of our church. Both in our parochial schools and in our Sunday schools of religion, we welcome the Lord. Mothers, fathers, children, teachers, pastors work together to increase knowledge of our faith. You work togetherin faith to believe that the Lord is with you. As the schools of religion start up, I ask for two positive decisions. First, offer a full measure of co-operation to make your program effective and fruitful among our children and young people. Secondly, support the Catechetical program in the diocese and in your parish through the second collection of next weekend. Your pastor, Sister Consuella and Sister Nancy join me in this plea. Praying for you and your children, I remain, Your friend, + Andrew J McDonald Bishop of Little Rock Blacks To Hold Conclave Little Rock -- A Homecoming for all Black Catholics in Arkansas is scheduled Saturday, Nov. 27, at St. John's Catholic Center, 2500 North Tyler Street. His Excellency Bishop Andrew J. Mc- Donald has issued an invitation to the event. The idea for the Homecoming came from meetings of Father Michael Aureli, pastor of St. Augustine Church, and parishioners from St. Peter, Pine Bluff; St. Augustine, North Little Rock, and St. Bartholomew, Little Rock. Father Aureli is Bishop McDonald's official liaison for the Black Catholic com- munity. For the past six months, Father Aureli has been working with the Black community in laying a foundation for setting up an Office of Black Catholics. Father Aureli has made plans to discuss the need for an Office of Black Catholics and the establishment of an Office of Black Catholics in Arkansas at the Homecoming. Bishop Eugene A. Marino, a Black Catholic Bishop, will be the featured keynote speaker for the day. Bishop Marino will talk about the structure and organization of an Office of Black Catholics. Bishop Maino is a native of Biloxi, Miss., and the auxiliary Bishop of Washington, D.C. Bishop Marino is a member of various organizations, including the U.S. Bishops Council on Marriage and Family, the National Catholic Education Association and the National Black Clergy Caucus. The theme for the Homecoming will be: "A Family Strengthening Its New Ties And Renewing Its Old Relations." With the theme in mind, Gloria Renee' Moon, lay director for the Black Catholic Homecoming, is stressing the idea of one unified Black Catholic Arkansas family. She feels that people should think in terms of one Black Catholic family, not just individual parishes. She says that the entire family will worship together in song and prayer and is asking the prayers of the entire Catholic community that the Black Catholic Homecoming will be successful. All Catholic people of all areas are invited to attend the Homecoming. For more in- formation, Miss Moon can be contacted at: St. Augustine's Church, 203 North Clark Street, North Little Rock, Arkansas 72114, phone - 375-9617. Bishop Eugene A. Marino
