February 2, 1990 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Around the Diocese Wellness Seminar Seventeen diocesan priests gathered re(:entlx ,t tile Sarto Retreat House for the second an- nual Wellness Seminar. During the seminar, the priests learned about the "importance of physical health and emotional health and how they affect our ministry," cx-plai.d Father James Saner, director .f the Con- tinuing Education tor Clergy program. Father Sauer said the idea for the wellness seminar grew out of the U.S. bishops' committee on priestly life and ministry. The bishops' committee wrote about wellness, noting, "Taking care of one's physical health con- stitutes an authentic expression of Christian self-love. It is dif- ficult for a priest genuinely to love others and to invite them to love themselves when he con- sistently exempts himself from this caring" Father Sauer said the seminar focused on three needs: Physical needs, including the importance of exercise, nutri- tion, weight control and rest. Spiritual needs. Emotional and psychological needs, including .building serf-esteem and improv- ing communication skills. During the seminar, the par- ticipants looked at possible ad- dictions in the lives of priests, in- cluding addictions to food, alcohol or drugs. "With the declining number of priests there is the issue of 'how can we maintain our health and continue to serve," Father Sau said. Participants included: Father John Davidson, St, Joseph Church, Jasper; Father William Deering, Holy Rosary Church, Evansville; Father Pat ..................................................................    s, ,,.. ............................................................................................ :.  :z:;:::::zzz :z:;zf:;::;:zz::::zzzz! ::i:!: : :;:;:::::;::::: :zz:::zZ::z:::::z::z:f:!z:!z!:izi::i;:: i.:: ::::::::::::::::::::::: i:i::i:i:i z:z::::: :z z: :::;::::2 ::;:::2::z::! ;z:,,:::i:: :z;::: ,:;:,. z: ::::!:!::;::::::::::;+::::::z:z::z:}:!zi:!;iz;z I ::::::::z::;:::zy::z::: ;;:::i::!:izi,:i;::: :::::2;: :: J:: ;z ::!z 2! ::!:!:;;::j:::::: ::;;:::::::::2::::: :i :::i z ;z!::i:::::::::;:: g:::::: :. :::z:: :::::::::::::::::::::::::: ;:::::z:::::;:;:i; f: :!:i:!:::i:i:::z ::::::::::::::::::::: ,: Foster, Holy Spirit Church, Evansville; Father Jim Koressel, St. Simon Church, Washington; Father Sylvester Loehrlein, St. Mary's Medical Center, Evansville; Father Bernard Lutz, St. Mary Church, Washington; Father Robert Nemergut, St. John Church, Evansville; Father Jerry Neufeider, St. Meinrad Seminary; Father Earl Rohleder, St. Anthony Church, Evansville; Father Ted Tempe].
