The Message m for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Two represent liturgical region Mary Ann Wittgen and Father William Deering, both of Evansville, currently serve as members of the board of a na- tional liturgical organization. Wittgen has been active in diocesan liturgical planning for many years. She is serving as treasurer of the Federation of Liturgical Commissions. Father Deering, diocesan director of worship, represents Region Seven of the FDLC. That region includes Indiana and Illinois. The FDLC is a grassroots network of diocesan liturgists. It provides diocesan liturgical planners with support in their ef- forts toward the liturgical renewal begun by the second Vati- can Council. Father Deering said it is very unusual for the two repre- sentatives from a region to be from the same diocese.

Organ, monstrance donated A Hammond electronic organ has been donated for the chapel at Villa Maria, the home for retired priests of the Dio- cese of Evansville. The gift came from members of the Pro- Cathedral of the Most Holy. Trinity, Carl and Harold Ulrich, who operate Mid City Music, Inc., in Evansville. The donated instrument is described as a Church]Home organ, ideal for the small chapel at Villa Maria. It replaces an older chord organ. The brothers made the contribution with the encourage- ment of their sister, Caro! Anslinger, who is the organist at Holy Trinity. She said she noticed the need while attending a Holy Hour at the chapel. Msgr. Thomas Clarke, a resident of Villa Maria, said he and fellow resident Msgr. Roman Vollmer and several lay persons have begun a monthly holy hour at the chapel. They are active in the Marian Movement of Priests, according to Msgr. Clarke. According to Msgr. Clarke, an anonymous donor con- tributed money for the purchase of a new monstrance and other items used for Benediction.

Before such Catholic News Service VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Continuing to fight against a draft document on interna- tional population policies, Pope John Paul II said he was not trying to be alarmist but said the document threatens human dignity and morality. Before reciting the "Regina Coeli" prayer with pilgrims in St. Peter's Square April 17, the pope said he wanted to share his "deeply felt concerns" about the preparations for the U.N.- sponsored International Con- ference on Population and De- velopment. The preparatory committee for the conference was discussing the draft docu- ment at a meeting April 4-22 at the United Nations in New York. In a March meeting with the secretary-general of the confer- ence and in a later letter to all John Paul criticized the confer- ence's draft document for its attitudes toward sexuality, marriage, birth control and abortion. Pope John Paul said the draft document focuses almost exclusively on limiting the number of births in the Third World without paying enough attention to economic develop- ment, a better sharing of the world's resources and the need to protect the religious and moral beliefs of families tar- geted by the population-control policies. Pope John Paul told the pil- grims at St. Peter's that no one can ignore the importance of the questions to be treated at the September meeting in Cairo, Egypt. The meeting's subject matter goes directly to how one under- stands human life in "the deci- sive areas of sexuality and the argument, no one away as if it with them," he sai& The pope, said he was vidual consciences one would be at first glance, be logical cal arguments for the draft document.
