After the Faithful have done their part by attracting ihe non-Catholic to the Church then the work of the priest begins• Catholics too frequently forget this. They ex- pect the priest to do it all when the good or evil starts with them. To begin with, if they expect the num- ber to increase ~hey should persist- entiy ask and insist that their friends accompany them to the various ser- vices. They must also prepare them- selves, by attending the instructions given weekly at each of the missions so that they can in an intelligent and convincing manner explain every de- tail that the perplexed non-Catholic may ask. Many a Catholic will be held accountable for the souls lost through their own wilful neglect. Re. member there are sins of omission as well as of commission--sins' of the tongue for speaking when silence would have been ,better and sins of the tongue for not speaking when words of instruction should have been uttered. ARE YOU GUILTY? Again stray children did not go away from home in a hurry• Way- ward Catholics drop away from the faith gradually and it takes patience and perseverance to get them. to re- turn ere the call comes to attend them in death's agony. Some folks are of the opinion that if they wil- fully miss Mass one or two Sundays each month that it does not matter. Beware, you know folks that did that very thing and now they are not at- tending Mass even one Sunday a year. By your Works you shall be known. Mary Immaculate, Hoxie. The greatest event that took ptace during the time since this Mission House was opened on July 1, 1927, was the placing, as it were, of the crown upon years of faithful work on the part of the Very Reverenff S. J. Peoples, Ph.D., Diocesan Dean of the Catholic Missions, who had charge of Hoxie for a number of years, and the people of Hoxie.Walnut Ridge. Catholics, non-Catholics and Jews; when on the evening of October 9th, the Right Reverend John Baptist Morris, D. D., Bishop of the Diocese, assisted by priests of the Northeast Deanery, Little Rock, and Texarkana, dedicated the beautiful church to the honor and glory of God. Following the dedicatory ceremony the. Bishop addressed the congregation at length. He thanked all for the co-operation which made it possible to erect such a splendid building and stressed the meyer and Lawrence Dahmus.

The regular visitations were made to Knobel and instructions given each week to the children and a few adults who are profiting by the knowledge in Christian doctrine being imparted to the children. The first Sunday High Mass to be sung there in many years was beau- tifully rendered by the children on Sunday, the 16th. Mrs. L. Dahmus gives freely of her time and with the able assistance of the Sisters the long desired r~sults are being achieved. It should be the joy of each parish to sing a High Mass on Sunday and while this has not been possible for various r~asons in the past ~t is hoped t]}at during the scholastic year it will be possible at St. George Missions• Newport. St. John's is visited twice a month and instruction given after the Mass. At the last visitation plans were form- ed for th~ rebuilding of ~he church and it is our sincere hope that soon we shall have~a house of worship in the county seat of Jackson county. At present services are held in the Ideal Laundry. Mr. Walton is indeed kind to permit us the use of the building and it is greatly appreciated. A fire of unknown origin broke out in the rear of the building on the morning of October 22, and caused consider- able flamage. The Church Vestments had been stored in that part of the building for safe-keeping, as it was thought, but fire disregards all forms of decency so the vestments, which had been rescued from the church at the time of the big fire of over a the few faithful Catholics at Newport to rebuild their church will find the opportunity to do so by Sending their contribution to either Mr. C.

The children of St. Winand's School conducted a Halloween party 12th, the ~hildren's choir under the direction of Sister M. Cecelia, O. S. B., with Mrs. L. Dahmus at the organ, will render the proper parts of the Requiem High Mass which will be of- fered up for the repose of the soul of Rev. Joseph Schlatterer, who died in August, 1922. IMther Joseph, as he was better known, was pastor at Knobel for a number of years. The faithful have not forgotten his rain- istration, the many and varied self- denials he endured-that the faith might be kept alive in Knobel. It is expected that many will assist at the Mass and offer Communion in his memory. One of the outstanding events of the week was the beautiful and devo- tional singing of the childi'en. Each of the Masses found tlie children in their places and it is through their combined co-operation that made it possible to have so many High Masses• It was Sister Ignatia, O. S. B., who was superior of St.~Bernard's School for two years who brought the chin dren's choir into existence at Knobel. The foundation so solidly laid by her and Mrs. M. D. Byers, later taken up by Mrs. Lawrence Dahmus, has bee~, through the efforts of Sister Cecelia, made it so that now we are able to have a High Mass each Sunday,~as well as a Requiem when it is so de- sired. Remember it has been co-op- eration on the part of all that brought this about• It will continue to be the pride of the parish. Each must remember that they are an important part and work with the leader. Saturday morning at 8 o'clock the fourth anniversary of Frederick A. Sellmeyer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Sellmeyer, a Requiem High Mass was sung for the repose of his soul. Sunday morning the regular paro- chial High Mass was sung as usual and followed by the Benediction with the Most Blessed Sacrament. Communion was taken four times to the various members of the parish who are ill and not able to attend the divine services. Having spent the greater part of the week in prayer they closed it by assembling at St. Bernard's Cemeter as the Barrymores• Several exhibit- ed unusual talent. One would marvel how, a~ their tender age, they could be so proficient. It was conclusive proof of what our children can do, how hard they worked, and of what an intense interest they have in their school. These plays should come often. It is fine training for the future. Later Ithey will grow up men and women--- in business, the men; the women mar- ried. All of them at some time or other will be called upon to speak publicly. This sort of thing fits them for that--prepares them to appear before the public. And this they are able to do very well indeed. 'Every-[ one who took part is deserving of the highest praise and merit• _ ST. FRANCIS MISSION HOUSE I FORREST CITY By Rev. E. A. Hemmen In writing for this column, I refer only to conditions in Eastern Ark- ansas for that is the section of Ark- ansas I know and love best. To know, any part of Arkansas, is to love it and its people. All my feeble efforts have ben put forth in sections of Eastern Arkansas and it is for this reason that I can speak with some knowledge, however slight, of this ter- ritory. All present indications point to a great future for missionary activities• Perhaps the early missionaries, who have so zealously labored here in the past have thought their noble el, forts in vain---at least as far as they were able to ascertain then. If, per- chance they were of this opinion, we hasten to assure them that every day brings to our knowledge; inci- dents whic~ manifest the growth of dicapped in many ways. They had to undergo many hardships. Bigotry and prejudice were more rampant; the mode of living was coarse~ good roads not known; means of convey- ance slow and tiresome; conditions of health poor; Catholics more scatered and priests fewer in number, and yet they have sown the seed, the growth of which is still increasing as a re- sult of their Apostolic labors. We have manF-advantages today which they did not enjoy and the successes of the past and present are nothing when compared with the possibilities This is inherent in our very nature• The joys of the missionary are inany as are too, his sorrows. But speak- ing of joys, the ~,greatest happiness for a priest is to see his flock corre- spond with the graces bestowed upon them by Almighty God and faithfully follow the exhortations of our di- vine Savior• The past week was one of extreme joy for the missionary• Auspiciously ushered in with the great feast of Christ the King and followed immediately by the feasts of All Saints and All Souls, the peo- ple brought great joy to the heart of the missionary, because of the almost hundred per cent reception of the Sacraments of Confession and Holy Communion by the people of Wynne and Forrest City during these days. Of course it meant work and sacrifice but isn't it the. sacrifice that makes the reward sweeter? We too frequently judge the faith and holiness of a congregation by its large and beautiful edifices. The true and unfailing criterion, however, is not so much by the magnificent struc- tures erected but the monuments of frequent Confession and reception of Holy Communions• Forrest City. St. Francis Church. The special devotions in honor of Christ the King on Sunday and those in honor of All Saints and The Holy Souls were well attended• All who could availed themselves of the op- portunity to gain the many indulg- ences for the Holy Souls. The usual First Friday devotions were well at- tended on Friday night. During the month of November the Way of the Cross will take the place of the other usual weekly de- votions. We are very grateful to Mrs. Abe Ash for the donation of a beautiful pedestal which is to adorn the sane- tuary in the near future. The pedes- tat has been ordered and will be set in place as soon as the shipment ar- rives. There is room for many other donations of this sort, opened to those who wish to express their love for the Church in this manner. The choir had a successful rehearsal during the past week. Rehearsals will be held each Wednesday and Fri- day night from-seven to eight in the future. WYNNE |mmaculate Conception ChUrch Altar Society.
