A Eucharistic Minister for three years at Christ the King parish, a daily communicant and a member of the Parish Council, she was a member of the core committee which launched the first group of 21 deacons who were ordained in November, 1981. Originally asked to teach "Psychology and Principles of Coun- seling," she meanwhile ob- served that the wives of the candidates could need advice concerning the new roles their husbands would be un- dertaking and made herself available for group discussions with them. Along with Father Richard S. Oswald, Director of Family Life, and psychologist Dennis Kellar, she taught a course on "Marriage and Sexuality."

Plans are now underway for another three-year course for laymen interested in becoming deacons and Clare will be active in the recruitment and evaluation of candidates. For the past 10 years, she has worked at Holy Souls School one half-day each week counseling with teachers concerning their problems with students and with the students themselves on an emergency basis. Conducting workshops on communications for the Olivetan Benedictine Sisters at Holy Angels Convent in Jonesboro is another of Clare's projects. All of this is in addition to her full-time position as Social Services Program Co- Ordinator for the Little Rock Community Mental Health Center, where she began work as a social worker in 1970. Present duties include the overseeing of 11 employees throughout the state. "I'm the aging specialist for the Center," she laughed, "both in theory and in practice." Services for the aged in- clude workshops for those who will be caring for the elderly in nursing homes and hospitals and seminars for middle-aged couples who are coping with aging parents while raising their own families. She has served as the Arkansas representative to regional meetings on aging and on the Planning Com- mittee for the Governor's Conference on Aging in Arkansas. Clare pointed out that 15 years ago, she didn't even know what social work was all about. Before marriage, she attended the University of Texas for two years and after marriage, she graduated from Rice University as a Phi Beta Kappa. Being in honors classes at both universities, she never had to declare a major, the only requirement Clare Rollosson C TNA No w Is a Reality, Bishops ToM Washington (NC) -- The Catholic Telecommunications Network of America, "what was once a dream three years ago, is now in place, begin- ning its service to the church," Bishop Louis E. Gelineau of Providence, R.I., told his fellow bishops recently. Bishop Gelineau, chairman of the board of CTNA, a for- profit corporation wholly owned by the U.S. Catholic Conference, developed to provide satellite com- munications for the church, addressed the National Conference of Catholic Bishops-U.S. Catholic Con- terence general meeting in Washington. CTNA is providing three hours of radio and television programming a day, with 33 dioceses now affiliated, Bishop Gelineau said. Those dioceses represent 34 per cent of the U.S. Catholic population, he added. Meanwhile, CTNA's first teleconference is set for this month to link the Dioceses of Charlotte and Raleigh in North Carolina with the CTNA staff in New York City for a meeting, Bishop Gelineau reported. Services to be provided in the future, in addition to more programming, include fur- ther teleconferences and telelectures as well as elec- tronic mail, the bishop said. But, he said, more dioceses need to affiliate with the system. He also suggested that dioceses, wherever possible, being a certain number of hours in specific courses such as language, science and literature.

Clare recalled the New Year's Day dinner in 1968 when she announced to her family that she was going back to school. She anxiously awaited their reaction. "No one fell out of their chair," she observed happily and the rest is history. She has enriched her own life and that of many others as well. 1421 No. 7th Street Fort Smith, Ark. 72901 Master Distributor For DPM of Arkansas & Kansas Statue Is Dedicated At Subiaco Subiaco -- A statue of St. Jude was dedicated by Abbot Raphael DeSalvo, O.S.B., at New Subiaco Abbey recently to commemorate the generosity of Conrad and Gretchen Elsken to the Abbey many years ago.

The statue of St. Jude was chosen as a fitting memorial to the 1982 Elsken and the Beck families because of the Becks' Miss Agnes P. devotion to this saint, daughter of Drs.
