NATIONAL BANK OF EASTERN ARKANSAS Strong, Depondablo Servko Sinco 1886 FORREST CITY, ARKANSAS Wellington, New Zealand (NC) -- Five Protestant churches have announced a joint plan for the pro- gressive, rapid and full organic union into one Church called "The Church of Christ in New Zealand." The churches involved are the Methodist, Presbyterian, Congre- gational, Anglican and the Asso- ciated Churches of Christ in New Zealand. The plan for union was pre- pared by the Joint Commissionon Church Union, under the chair- manship of Anglican Bishop Allen Johnston of Waikato. A formal act of union will take place after each of the uniting churches has accepted the plan for union and has decided to en- ter the union according toitspro- per constitutional procedure. The announcement said that,he five churches believe that their Lithuanian Reds Imprison Priest New York (NC) -- Father ln- ginas Kunevicius, 37, parish priest of Didvydziai, Lithuania, has been arrested for askingfor greater re- ligious freedom, it was reported here by ELTA, information service of the Supreme Committee for Liberation of Lithuania. Father Kunevicius was one of the signers of a memorandum presented to Moscow which asked for more religious freedom and, specifically, for enlargement of the now severely restricted en- rollment to the seminary in Kaunas. After the appeal, the signers were warned in writing. Father Kunevicins read the official letter to his parishioners and explained all the circumstances. The police then attempted to force him to sign a resignation from his duties in the parish. When he refused, the authorities ordered the com- munist-controlled parish commit- tee to initiate an action against him to paralyze church services. But the parishioners supported the priest. Then the authorities arrested Father Kunevicius and deported him. It was later reported that he was in a forced labor unit near Vilnius. A Paris-based Polish-language magazine "Kultura" also reported the observations of recent Polish visitors to Lithuania that religious persecution is increasing there. The magazine article said that only five of the 34 churches in Vilnius remain open. Only one seminary is allowed to function. The article also said that young- sters under 18 years of age are not allowed to attend church ser- Vatican Issues Guide for Talks With Moslems With the malnobjective of setting up a "really solid dialogue" be- tween Moslems and Christians, the Vatican Secretariat for Non- Christians has published a hand- book of guidelines for finding common grounds between the two faiths. In the introduction to its 171- page "Guidelines for a dialogue between Moslems and Chris- tians," published this autumn, the secretariat stated: "Our main objective will be to underline some of the conditions which are necessary tf there is to be a really solid dialogue between Moslems and Christians." The aim of such adialogue isnot to "convert" the other party, nor to have anyone raise doubts about their own faith, the secretariat explained.

The announcement said the churches do not believe that ri- gid uniformity is required. While holding to a common fun- damental faith and order, the united church will assure to its members ' such freedom of opinion and action as are consistent with the life of the church as one organic body, it added. Forms of worship customary in the uniting churches may be con- tinued in the united church, except in the matter of orders for the ordination of deacons andpriests and for the consecration of bis- hops. These orders will be pre- pared and agreed upon and will be used by the United church from the time of union. The united church will give the central place in its worship to the sacrament of Holy Communion. MONSIGNOR : NOLAN _-=_ WRITES: THE HOLY FATHER'S MISSION AID TO THE ORIENTAL CHURCH When people ask why priests in India are work- ing to find water (see "The Waters of India" in Our Sunday Visitor, Nov. 16) I go to the faucet and return with an empty glass. Water, like breathing, is something we take for granted. Without it we cannot eat, or drink, or wash, or be baptized. INDIA: People, too, we sometimes take for granted. In DON'T India there are 530 million--more than twice as WASTE many people as in the U.S.A. and Canada cam- THE bined. The average Indian's take-home pay is WATER less than 50 a week. What can you do about it? Write me or phone me (212/YU 6-5840). We'll put you in touch with the person In India you can help to help himself and others. For instance, the deserving young lad who wants to become a priest ($15 a month, $180 a year). Or the prayerful young teen-ager who feels  called to be a Sister ($12.50 a month, $150 a year). Or the orphanage child, saved from the streets, who needs only an even chance (and $10 a month) to become a responsible, self- supporting grownup. Catholic Near East is person-to-person.
