January 18, 1991 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Come Alive with 565 K of C grand knight lo()]00s to rekirLdle old enthusiasm The new grand knight of Council 565 wants to bring back some of the old enthusiasm of the Knights of Columbus. Grand Knight James Parker of Evansville was elected last August to the leadership post for the 1990-91 year. He has begun to encourage the members to "Come Alive with 565." As one way of restoring some of the old energy, Parker has re- named a monthly newsletter, "The Compass." That was the name of the newspaper the Knights of Columbus used to publish, and Parker recently .,. came across a bound volume of Some of the old issues. The Compass was published twice a month in the late 1940s, typically on the 10th and 25th of the month. Later, the paper became a monthly. The Com- pass used high quality paper, sharp photos, and accepted advertising. " "Successful Spring Barbecue Assures Debt Free Council" Was the Page 1 headline, May 10, 1950. The success of the project enabled the Council to pay off the balance of the air- Conditioning indebtedness and to ear-mark some funds for maintenance in the near future, according to the story. Other news items in that issue reported that the Catholic Guild Would present a three-act com- dY, "Jenny Kissed Me," and at tickets were $1 for adults and 50 cents for students. Front page news May 21, 1951, included "Golf Tourna- ment opens May 27th" and plans for election of officers. A calendar of coming events was also a prominent, front-page feature. News about upcoming events, elected officers, golf and other sporting events con- tinues in the newsletter being prepared under Parker's leadership. Bowling stories were regular features of the Compass 40 years ago. Parker said Council 565 traditionally had good teams in state competition. He hopes 1991, the 90th anniver- sary of the establishment of Council 565, will bring renew- ed enthusiasm among all of the members of the Knights of Col- umbus throughout the area. Bowling competition with Evansville Shriners from the Hadi Temple brought out some enthusiasm at Willow Lanes, Evansville, Sunday, Jan. 13, said Parker. "For the first time in years and years, we took all four trophies," he said. Bowling competition is scheduled every year with the Shriners, "and there's a lot of good comraderie," said Parker. The Knights and the Shriners take turns hosting a meal following the competition. The Shriners hosted the meal and trophy presentation Sunday, he said.

Pope John Paul II called Jan. 13 for an international "peace conference contributing to the resolution of all the problems of living peacefully in the Middle East." "Save humanity the tragic experience of a new war," he urged at his Sunday Angelus talk in St. Peter's Square. "A war would not resolve the problems, only aggravate them," he said. "How many civilians, how many babies, how many women, how many elderly people would be inno- cent victims?" Christian leaders of the Holy Land issued a plea Jan. 13 to President Bush and U.N. General Secretary Javier Perez de Cuellar urging them "to avoid war, to save human lives, to promote a just solution to all the causes of conflict in the Middle East." In a letter sent Jan. 7 and made public Jan. 11, the day before the congressional resolu- tion approving warfare if need- ed, Archbishop John R. Roach of St. Paul-Minneapolis warned each member of Congress that "a resort to offensive military action ... could well violate traditional moral criteria" that must be met for a just war. Archbishop Roach is chair- man of the U.S. bishops' Com- mittee on International Policy, the lead agency on war, peace and other international issues in the U.S. Catholic Con- ference, the bishops' national public policy arm. "The fundamental moral challenge," he wrote, is "to mobilize effectively the political will, diplomatic skill and economic strength to resist and reverse Iraq's aggression by peaceful but determined means." On Jan. 10 chief executives of many of America's Protestant and Orthodox churches endors- ed a letter to Congress declaring "our opposition to U.S. offen- sive military action" and urg- ing the lawmakers to give sanc- tions "ample opportunity to take effect" before crossing the line to war. The executives met by phone, through an emergency con- ference call initiated by the No- tional Council of Churches president, Father Leonid Kishkovsky of the Orthodox Church in America. The letter they endorsed was written by Father Kishkovsky and James A. Hamilton, NCC general secretary. It reiterated NCC statements of recent mon- ths which condemned the Iraqi invasion but rejected warfare as a solution. The NCC has called instead for continued use of the international sanctions and for diplomacy within a United Na- tions framework to resolve the "longstanding issues" behind conflict in the Middle East. A similar message came from the Canadian Council of Chur- ches, representing 16 Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox church bodies in Canada. In December the council urg- ed that the crisis be resolved by a peaceful, negotiated solution. On Jan. 10 its member chur- ches, joined by 27 Protestant denominations of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, urged all Canadian Christians to "devote Sunday Jan. 13 as a day of prayer for peace in the Middle East."
