The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana May 29, Daughters of Isabella serve 60 dinners to needy on Sunday By PAUL R. LEINGANG Message Editor Volunteers using donated food items helped provide meals for 60 needy people Sunday, at the Daughters of Isabella center in Evansville. It was the first such effort by the organization. Darle Stewart :said mem- bers of the Daughters of Is- abella had begun to discuss the idea last November, and then began making plans. The Daughters of Isabella -- with a crew of members and their husbands -- plan to serve one meal a month to needy peo- ple. Stewart said the meal on Sunday "went well." She said she had hoped for more peo- ple, but she believed the members of her organization were satisfied with the results of their first efforts Proposal Continued from page 1 by Rep. Charles Bennett, D- Fla., would allow taxpayers to earmark a tax-deductible portion of their tax refunds for certain federal programs. While the church upholds the right of the state to collect taxes to serve the common good, no one should be forced to act in ways contrary to their religious beliefs, said Bishop Gumbleton, quoting from the Second Vatican Council's Declaration on Reli- gious Freedom. "The question remains of how to balance the legitimate right of the state to collect taxes for the common good and the equally legitimate right of those, who for reli- gious or moral reasons, can- not contribute to military spending without violating their conscience," Bishop Gumbleton's statement said. "In order to fulfill their moral obligation to God and conscience, many have cho- Students from Mater Dei High School assisted families at the meal. Last Sunday's menu was goulash, salad, apple sauce, hot rolls and strawberry shortcake, along with coffee, tea and, milk. Donating food and other items were Dewig Meats, Wesselman's Grocery Stores, Dolly Madison, Ideal Ameri- can Dairy Company, Schnucks Food Stores, Royal Super Foods, Parson Food Sales, Diamond Foods, Grandy's, Lewis Bakery, Mooney Copy Service, Amer- ican General Finance, Mc- Donald's and G.D. Ritzy's. Planners of the meal had given tickets to the pastors of St. Anthony and St. Mary churches in Evansville, to be handed out at the parishes. The organization was pre- pared to serve as man.y as 100 meals. sen to live far below the poverty line in order to avoid paying taxes." Others give up owning other property to pro- tect themselves from IRS seizures, he said. The peace tax bill is one step in bringing such people back into full participation in the American life, Bishop Gumbleton said. Similar legislation to amend the tax code was con- sidered near the end of the Vietnam War, but has not been the subject of a congres- sional hearing since then. The Bush administration op- poses both bills as confusing and increasing paperwork for taxpayers and the IRS. Others testifying at the hearing included Norman Parnes of the Air Force Sergeants Association. He said a peace fund would lead to a military consisting of mercenary volunteers "de- fending only those who be- lieve in war."
