Keller, D.D., pastor of the Holy Redeemer Church ince September, 1924, is to be trans- ferred to the Pine Bluff Catholic parish in about ten day~s, he was ad- vised yesterday by the at. Rev. John B. Morris, Bishop of LiLtl~ Rock. Msgr. Walter J. Tynin of Pine Bluff will be Dr. Keller's successor at the Holy Redeemer Church. Many expressions of regret over Dr. Keller's transfer Were made yes- terday by his paris~hioners and by other E1 Dorado citizens. Dr. Keiler also said that he regretted to leave this c:ty.'it very much. "Working with the people of E1 Dorado in both religious and civic affairs has been a great pleasure, Dr. Keller said in a statement to The News, "and I wish to thank every one for the!r fine spirit of coopera- tion wi~h me and my work. "I never expect to be assigned to a pastorate in any city wl:ere I will have an opportunity to work with a finer class of peop:e. I have enjoyed my work and life here, and it is use- ess to say tha~ I regret to leave." Studied at Rome Father Keller was born, reared and educated in Little Rock. Dr. Kel- er graduated from Little Rock Col- lege in 1913, taking his degree AIB. there. He .continued his work at the Protmgan4a University, Rome, Italy, taking the degree of Doctor of Phi- losophy and Doctor of Theology. During his pastorate in E1 Dorado, Catholic]activities have been greatly enlarged, and the membership .of his church increased. During the six years and two months of his pasto- rate, the Catholic parochial 'schools here have been established and a rectory built. The Warner Brown Hospital was also taken over by the Sisters of Mercy and a home for the sisters acquired during this time. Dr. Keller has also been an ac- tive civic worker and has taken an interest in a number of city affairs. He was a director of the Community Chest during its existence and has been active in the affairs of the Lit- tle Theatre. He is vi member of the El Dorado Rotary Club. Father Keller is to preach his last sermon as pastor of ~he Holy Re- deemer Church next Sunday, the transfer being effective in about ten days. During the past week a most successful mission, with a large non- Catholic attendance, was preached at his church by the Rev. J. G. Moir, a Paulist priest, upon invitation of Father Keller. Monsignor Tyntn is also an Ar- kansas native, being reared and edu- cated in this state. He also studied at Rome. The title of. monsignor was conferred on him several ye/~rs ago for the successful administration of his parish at Pine Bluff. BARTHELREV. CHA$. B. M'OY HAMED ST.
