The Enneagram is a per- sonality theory which originated in Sufism, the mystical tradition of Islam. According to the En- neagram, there are nine basic kinds of personalities. Each of these types is described by a set of observable behavioral characteristics. The distinguishing characteristic for each type is a basic com- pulsion which unconscious- ly governs behavior. Participants in the En- neagram Basics workshop are led to a better sense of self-worth, insights into their own behavior with its limitations and its gifts, and alternate ways to approach the dynamics between per- sons in relationship. Topics for discussion in- clude positive traits, rela- tionships, pride, avoidance, defense and communication style. The facilitator for. the weekend will be Sister Maureen Mangen, C.P.P.S., co-director of the John XXIII Retreat and Adult Education Center in Hartford City, Ind. Sister Mangen received SR.

Continued from page 3 "Twenty Years of Sharing" was the theme of the Catholic Education Foundation, Inc., (CEF) fund drive launched March 8, The 1988 campaign generated $81,859, which was an $3,598 increase from the previous year. On Oct. 20, it was announced that 111 students had accepted tutiton grants from the CEF, a total of $63,175. In the last two decades, the CEF has raised over $1.6 million -- 64 percent of which has been used to help pay students' tuition costs. Matters of finance made news in 1988. As of June 22, thirty- three parishes had reached or exceeded their goals during the Bishop's Fund -- ADA 1988 campaign. Pledges of $1,278,247 were received during the campaign, which represents about 65 per- cent of the total diocesan budget for 1988-89, according to Justin Clements, diocesm development director. The top health care story in 1988 concerned efforts to con- solidate the services of the two Catholic hospitals in Dubois County, which ended in the wake of a "growing furor" in Huntingburg and Jasper. In May, plans were made to transfer the control of St. Joseph Hospital, Huntingburg, from the Sisters of ct Benedict, Fer- dinand, to the Sisters of the Lit- tle Company of Mary of Evergreen Park, Ill. The Little Company of Mary also sponsors the Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center in Jasper. Discussion of this controver- sial transfer ,yes terminated Sept. 5, accor,Crg to a state- ment from .:::th religious communities. In the fall, it was announced that the Sisters of St. Benedict would transfer the control of St. Joseph Hospita! to a group of local citizens who formed a not- for-profit corporation. "By choosing to transfer the hospital to Southwest Regional Health Center, I hope we are enabling the local people to choose the direction they wish the hospital to take," said Sister Mary Walter Goebel, prioress of the Sisters of St. Benedict. "We are confident that they will ac- tively work for the same goal we have hoped to achieve in our original plans -- more cooperative cost effective health care delivery for the peo- ple of the area." 1988 was a year of celebrations. Catholics in the diocese celebrated the closing of the Marian Year with a Marian Novena, held Aug. 7-14 at Sacr.ed Heart Church, Evansville. Bishop Francis R. Shea vas the celebrant and homilist of the last service, held on the Mass of the Feast of Mary's Assumption. Kundek Sunday was held Sept. 25 in Ferdinand.
