2 The Message Monthly -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana January you wantto what I tb00uk? Participants in religious education classes at St. Joseph Church, Vanderburgh County, have focused considerable energy and attention on the needs of the homeless and hungry during the past several months. Activities have included watching the television special "The Cry of the Poor," reading news accounts, working at the soup kitchen at St. John Church, Evansville, and holding a Hunger Awareness Meal at the parish. Five St. Joseph students were asked by the Message to respond to the following question: "From your experi- ence, what should the Church be doing about hunger?' Jennifer Harris is a seventh grader at St. Joseph School. "We should get more kids in- volved and ask them to put themselves in the homeless people's places, and see how tough it would be. It would probably open their eyes." Joke Perigoy is an eighth grader at Helfrich Park School. "I think we need to be aware of the things we take for granted, that other people don't have. We need to be aware of how fortunate we are, to have the things we have, and to do more for other people who are in need." Nikki Kempf is in the eighth grade at St. Joseph School. "We should probably get more kids involved, get volunteers, get special groups formed. "We should write letters to people in Somalia. "Lots of people think going to a soup kitchen is boring, but it's pretty much fun." Peter Feherenbacher is in the eighth grade at St. Joseph School. "We should maybe think more about what we always ask for. We should give money to the poor that we don't necessarily need." Julia Wittman is an eighth grader at Helfrich Park School. "I think we could give a little more than we have been giving. "I think St. Joe is a pretty good role model. We've got the junior and senior high youth groups giving a lot of their time to help out the homeless people. The church as a whole could probably benefit by looking at St. Joe because the kids get in- volved and kind of get the whole Washington Auto Trim 27 Years Service parish to participate." [..

Invite a priest to your home to have dinner with your family. The world around us By DEACON JIM CAVERA Last Sunday we celebrated the feast of the Epiphany, the coming out of our savior. Matthew uses this time to proclaim Jesus as the King of the Jews. He tells the story of the wise men coming from the East following the "spe- cial" star. Herod could not see the star. In his homily our associate pastor challenged all of us to see and follow the special star -- to see Jesus among us. It made me think how easy it is to get sidetracked and fol- low the wrong stars. As Christians we are constantly trying to discern which star is the right one. This week the Indiana Leg- islature begins its 1993 ses- sion and already the mood is gloomy. The press reports that there is no new money and we are faced with in- creased expenses. There are numerous special interest groups knocking on the state house door seeking increases in funding.I do not envy the position of our state legisla- tors who are facing a most difficult task. One of those special inter- est groups is the Indiana Catholic Conference of which I am a part. I was told that we are the smallest lobbying group in the state and I have no reason not to believe it. What I do know is that our hearts are in the right place for they are centered on Christian Values. The Indiana Catholic Con- ference is working to make sense out of all the issues fac- ing our state this coming year and to inform our legislators of its special interest -- the teachings and values of Jesus, We encourage all Catholics to keep informed of the issues through the Message and the secular press We encoura, go , .
