NCRLC Sets Plans for 60th Anniversary Chicago -- The fall of 1983 will mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the National Catholic Rural Life Conference (NCRLC). A committee was appointed at the semi- annual board of directors meeting to co- ordinate the anniversary activities. A com- mittee member suggested that a possible site would be Living History Farms in Des Moines, I)wa, where Pope John Paul II visited rural America. Along with a national celebration, the committee plans to sponsor regional events as well. The Conference also formed an ad hoc committee to study the question of part-time farming and develop an official policy statement during the following year. In other related business, NCRLC voted to send a representative to the Non- Governmental Organizations (NGO) of the United Nations Third World Conference on spirituality of development and the use of natural resources. The active participation at the NGO Conference by NCRLC would lend a rural Catholic perspective to this ecumenical movement in Third World countries. The Nuclear Weapons Freeze Campaign was endorsed by the board of directors. The NCRLC Board also called for the United States and the Soviet Union to use a substantial portion of the monies saved to alleviate world hunger by establishing a world food bank that would provide an ample store of foods with non-national ties for peoples suffering from plague, famine or other catastrophes. NCRLC sees the already established Grain Reserve as an integral part of this world food bank. The Conference calls for the funds to also be used to assist Third World Countries to develop self-sustaining, non-exploitive agriculture. The NCRLC unanimously endorsed the following resolution: "We oppose extention of military aid to El Salvador until a genuine land reform program is re-instituted." Due to recent political upheavals in El Salvador, the on-going land reform program has been discontinued. The original criteria for the United States sending military aid to El Salvador was based on an active on-going land reform program. Currently, 6 per cent of the population owns 74 per cent of the land even though millions of U.S. tax dollars were spent to implement the land reform program. Therefore, with the demise of the programs, NCRLC called for an end to military aid for E1 Salvador. On Two New L rt Chicago -- The New 1983 Catholic Church Extension Society Art Calendars will feature the spiritual theme of our Lord's favorite prayer, the "Our Father," Society President Father Edward J. Slattery announced. The Art Calendar, which is one of three published by Extension each year for distribution by parishes and Catholic organizations nation-wide, features Scrip- tural scenes which relate to each verse of the "Our Father." Full-color artwork was produced for the calendar by nationally-recognized religious painter Robert A. Heuel of Milwaukee. The Art Calendar also is translated into a special Spanish edition to serve the needs of the growing numbers of Hispanic parishioners in the American Church. "In addition," said Father Slattery, "Ex- tension's 1983 Appointment Calendar also will be available soon." It contains contributions from some of the nation's leading photographers of contemporary scenes which capture the religious elements of every-day life in beautiful full-color photographs. In- cluded are photos of His Holiness John Paul II, the wonders of natural and urban en- vironments as well as ordinary people ex- pressing a range of human emotions. Each scene is illuminated with Scriptural meditations to bring the world into focus with the Catholic faith. All proceeds from calendar distribution benefit the home mission work of the Catholic Church Extension Society, the Papal- chartered society which is headquartered in Chicago. It has been serving the "neediest of home missions" in the United States and its protectorates since 1905. With nearly $6-million in requests from the home missions for this year alone, Extension supplies funding for construction of small chapels and catechetical centers, religious education programs, seminarian education and salary subsidies of priests and serving poor, rural or remotel missions across the country. Final printing of the 1983 calendars yet been completed. Additional orde # still being taken for all three calendarS.
