The letter said that there are certain views which did not originate as a result of it, which the bishops must actively op- pose in exercising their func- tion as preservers of the Gos- pel. In their letter, the bishops said that at present the council is more alive in some exag- gerated statements of the press, both conservative and progres- sive, than it is in the lives of German Catholics. The letter declared that the Church, both before and after the council, is the same Church founded by Jesus Christ. But, it added, the Church must be reformed. The pastoral letter closed with an urgent appeal to all German Catholics -- conserva- tives, progressives, the hesitant° priests, Religious, laity  to travel together with the bishops the road toward reform. Re- form can only be made, the let- ter said, if all work together. A balanced outlook on the Church's present .needs -- to keel) the Gospel message intact while shedding outmoded ways of presenting it--was sounded as the meeting's keynote by Julius Cardinal Doepfner of Munich. The Conference decided to establish 18 permanent commis- sions to deal with theological and practical questions. Bish- ops will compose the commis- sions' membership but priests and laymen will serve as con- sultants. Recommendations of these commissions will be con- sidered at the annual plenary second Monday in each month at 7:30 P.M. in the parish hall. All Catholic women in the par- ish have been invited to join. Since much is needed for the new mission most discussion was on money-making •projects. The first one decided on will be a bake sale to be held to- morrow, October 15 at 10 A.M. at the Jacksonville shopping center. The group also will sell Christmas cards. HOLY SOULS (Continued from.

The edifice will be located at the corner of Tyler and "I" Streets and will face south. The church, designed in the contemporary style of arch- itecture by Swaim, Allen, Well- born & Associates, architects, will seat 600 persons and will be constructed and furnished to conform to the liturgical re- forms arising from the Second. Vatican Council and will con- tain all the essential elements recommended by the Fathers of the Church. Construction is expected to start in 1967. When the new church is completed, the exist- ing church will be renovated, to provide additional classroom space. Keep Current Read The Guardian sessions of the hierarchy. One of the first tasks of the commis- sions will be plans for the for- mation of priests' councils and so-called pastoral councils of priests and laymen in all Ger- man dioceses. As another means of increas- ing cooperation between priests and laity, the establishment of a permanent diaconate was studied. Deacons with families and secular employment would. improve contact between the Church and the world, it was said. The bishops have decided to consult the other European bishops' conferences with re- gard to this matter. The bishops considered at length Germany's school prob- lems. There is a current edu- cational tendency in the coun- try toward consolidation of small schools into large central schools. Although many of the state-supported schools are de- nominational, either Catholic or Protestant, some educators and government leaders insist that the new central schools should be nondenominational Christian schools, attended by both Pro- testant and Catholic students. The bishops, in a cmnmunique, declared that they are not op- posed to educational reform where changes in modern so- ciety require it, but they stress- ed the value of Catholic educa- tion, as the Vatican council and their own earlier statements had done, They expressed their continued, and wholehearted support for the Catholic school, OCT. 14, 196613 Q; THE GUARDIAN i , Dr. Annie gremyer Chiropractor 310 EastNinth St. Little Rock FR 2-2684 In Men.
