February 16, 1990 I The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana 3 Workshc,ps begin for divorced, remarried Catholics FATHER KEN WALKER MARY GEN BLITTSCHAU "Can I get my children bap- tized if I don't go to church?" is just one of the questions a divorced and remarried Catholic may ask. "Am I excommunicated?" is another such question. To provide some answers, three workshops are planned by the churches of the Newburgh Deanery in late February and early March for divorced and remarried Catholics who are uncertain about their status in the Catholic Church. "Whatever your questfons, concerns, or feelings, you can always find an answer,-get some help, find someone to just listen to you, if you are willing to reach out as we try to reach out to you," promises the publicity material. "We want you to come home for Easter." Father J. Kenneth Walker and Mary Gen Blittschau will pre- sent the workshop on divorce and annulments at the home of Pat and Paul Martin, 5787 Spring Corner Road, Newburgh on Feb. 20 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Father Walker is the adju- tant judicial vicar in the diocesan tribunal; Blittschau is a judge for the tribunal. Both hold Master's Degrees from the University of Ottawa and Licen- tiates in Canon Law from St. Paul University. A workshop on the annul- ment process will be presented by Bob and Michelle Behme and Jerry and Jeanne Hulse, at the same location, on Feb. 27. "Companions on the Journey" will be presented March 6. Sponsoring the series are all of the churches in the deanery: St. Clement, Boonville', St Mar- tin, Chrisney; St. John the Bap- tist, Newburgh; St. Rupert, Red Brush, and St. Bernard, Rockport.
