i  !  ,!  , of Life Mass advocates are encouraged to 'stay on course' .... i 'iliiii:i ' '' ii  l students Sara Schenk and Emily Elpers lead a pro-life rosary before Life Mass, held Jan. 18 at St. Joseph Church, Evans;eille. -- Message photo by Mary Ann Hughes HUGHES By MARY ANN HUGHES Message staff writer Just as Jesus changed water into wine at Cana, pro-life advo- cates must change themselves, according to Father Brian Holtz. Father Holtz delivered the homily at the Jan. 18 Sanctity of Life Mass, held at St. Joseph Church, Evansville. He believes pro-life advocates must begin their fight against abortion by first "changing ourselves, by allowing ourselves to be the example." The Mass was concelebrated by Father Holtz, associate pastor at Holy Rosary Church, Evansville; Father Wilfred Englert, pas- tor at St. Joseph; Father Robert Deig, pastor at St. John Church, Daylight; Father Michael Madden, pastor at Holy Spirit Church, Evansville, and Msgr. Leo Conti. A pro-life rosary, led by Mater Dei High School students Emily Elpers and Sara Schenk, preceded the Mass. Music for the Mass was provided by vocalists from Memori- al High School, with Elizabeth Elliott at the piano and Juliette Hawa playing the violin. During the Mass, Father Holtz encouraged those in attendance to "stay on course, to keep your eyes fixed on your destination. We must remember to always stay on the path and allow the Spirit to live within us. "We must allow our God to open us up and let us see His greatness." n ISTEP scores are reason to celebrate centage of students above the gestions for using the informa- pate in this workshop because "We encourage our teachers state standards is a tribute to tion found in the Indiana Cur- we believe that teachers at each at all grade levels to share with our administrators, teachers, riculum Proficiency Guide. grade level, not just those in the one another on a regular basis are in for and the students.
