6 Jul The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana World Youth Planning for Paris and the pope By PAUL R. LEINGANG Message editor "I just want to see it (Paris), and walk around the city," said Rod- ney Crable, a 16-year old member of St. John Church, Evansville. "I think it will be exciting, seeing the pope and meeting kids from around the world." Crable and several other young people, parents and planners met recently at the Catholic Center. The delegation to World Youth Day in Paris will include 14 per- sons from southwestern Indiana, including Mike Eppler, diocesan director of youth and young adult ministry, and Blessed Sacrament Sister Jane Nesmith, Pastoral Life Coordinator at St. John Church. Teanna Lawrence, another youth member of St. John, said she was looking forward to the trip and the sight-seeing, but especially expecting to enjoy the time "when we see the pope." Hollie Newcomb, a member of St. Joseph Church, Evansville, said she was "nervous about the plane ride, but excited about the trip." She said the trip would be "a learning experience," adding, 'hat's what mom said." Newcomb said she had trav- eled before, but "only in the United States." She was partic- ularly looking forward to having Mass with the pope. Jean Zelenka, another parish- ioner at St. Joseph, said she didn't know exactly what to expect, but she knew that it would be "'a great experience." The group of 14 young adults and adults will leave Evansville Aug. 14 and return Aug. 26.
