A beautiful obligato to that most solemn rite was being sung by the Catholic Youth Singers with Miss Rebecca Norton as soloist and two guitarists providing a subdued accompaniment for her and the 15 other voices of the chorus. The singers were assembled inside the altar rail to the right of the sanctuary and all but two of them were in the view of the congregation. Those two were crowded behind the front pillar and were visible only to a few worshipers, kneeling in the As Holy Year Began in Diocese of Little Rock zwore man Ju rtrkansas priests concelebrated the Mass in the Cathedral of St. Andrew, Little Rock, as the local ob- servance of the 1975 Holy Year began last Saturday on the Feast of St. Andrew.

Bishop James Rausch, general secretary of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops and U. S. Catholic Conference (NCCB-USCC), reported in the final session of the bishops' recent annual meeting here that nine of the 12 geographical regions of the NCCB indicated the directory as the top priority for regional discussions. The 1975 regional meetings are also expected to mark the last time that the bishops across the country will meet on a regional level in the spring. The bishops voted to replace the spring regionals with a second national meeting each year "as wHrrFIELD JEWEL DIAMONDS WATCHES -- JEWELRY Watch Repairing "1 Cantrell & Grant - 666-66 Heights Shopping Cent Keep Current Rev.
