How Concerns about them get into the works? two ways, one from the point of view the second from the obligation of the to assist parents in passing on the children. Catholic Parents have the primary right and duty to edu- dren. Parents must then choose the in which this will be done. They look to Our challenge: To teach what Jesus taught us the state and church communities to assist them in this heavy responsibility. Catholic parents have the right and duty to edu- cate their children in the faith. How they choose to accomplish rests with them. They have the right to look to the Church community to assist them. Catholic parents then, through the synod plan- ning at the parish level need to address these con- cerns with the question: "How will our parish community help us to pass on the Catholic faith to our children?" Catholic Community The Church, the Catholic community, has an obligation to assist parents in teaching their chil- dren the Catholic faith. In our planning for the synod, we, the larger church, must first address some broad questions: "How will the Diocese of Evansville make provisions to assist parents to teach their children the Catholic faith? What needs to be done at the level of the dio- cese to accomplish that? What needs to be dane at the regional (dean- ery or inter-parish) level? What needs to be done at each parish level?" I have repeatedly stated, and there is an abun- dance of evidence, that the Catholic School is the best way for the Catholic Community to pro- vide assistance to parents in meeting their re- sponsibility to teach their children. "How will the Diocese of Evansville assure parents that, indeed, 'their Catholic School' will measure up to its responsibility to parents?" Where Catholic schools are not possible or when parents do not choose to use them we must ask: "How will the Diocese of Evansville assist parish communities provide out-of-school cate- chetical programs to meet parish obligations to assist parents in passing on the faith to their children?" "How will the parishes assure parents that there are appropriate programs of religious edu- cation available to them in 'their parish' and that such programs indeed assist them in meet- ing their responsibility to pass on the faith to their children?" These are very large concerns for all of us to consider as we make plans as parents and church communities to meet the mutual respon- sibility to teach what Jesus has taught us! :.Is Cod callin our ow thehec.k g y .

He spent a year touring with that album, performing with Tony Melendez, Dana, Billy Sprague, Yohann Anderson and Father Don Kimball at youth rallies and conventions across the United States.
