Mike Schwenk of the Foundation presented Father John Schipp with a check July 12. The projected cost of the Adopt a Computer Project has been estimated at $153,000.

The parish council has formed two sub-committees for the com- puter project. The first commit- tee will be asked to secure prices on computer systems.

I I I I I Chancellor receives national award Holy Names Sister Louise Bond, Chancellor of the Diocese of Evansville, is the recipient of the Gaudium et Spes Award form the National Associ- ation for Lay Ministry (NALM). Sister Louise is the first woman to receive the prestigious award, which was presented by the or- ganization's board of directors during the NALM annual conference in Indianapolis, June 3 -- 6. Other award recipients have been Archbishop Rembert Weakland, O.S.B., of Mihvaukee, Wisc., and Archbishop William D. Borders, retired, of Baltiiuore, Md. The award is a special tribute presented on oc- casion by the Executive Board of NALM "to an in- dividual who, in an exemplary manner, has evi- deuced commitment to the vision of the church as articulated in the documents of the Second Vati- can Council, and who, in a special way. has advo- cated and fostered the enhanced role of the laity who respond to their baptismal call to ministry in the church." SISTER LOUISE BOND Sister Louise has been a member of the organiza- tion and of the executive board from 1990 to 1993. She also served as the chairperson of the 1993 annual conference planning committee. According to the award, Sister Louise "has dedicated herself in ways beyond calcula- tion. She has listened for the issues and brought people together to address them not only for NALM but for the entire church in the United States." I I I Illl I II I II II Poor Clares observe 800-year anniversary St. Clare of Assist was born in 1193, and in1993, Poor Clares and other Franciscans will mark the 800th anniver- sary of herbirth. The Monastery of St. Clare, at 6825 Nurrenbern Road, Evansville, will mark the feast day of St. Clare, Aug. 11, with a special Mass, accord- ing to Poor Clare Sister Mary Martha Blandford. Sister Mary Martha de- scribes St. Clare as "the faith- ful lover of Jesus, poor and crucified," and as the "faith- ful friend and follower of St. Francis." The Order of St. Clare, more popularly called the Poor Clares, is a contempla- tive order, founded in the thirteenth century by 18-year- old Clare who begged St. Francis of Assist to allow her to follow him in his life of ab- solute poverty. "Throughout the world during this year of the an- niversary, Franciscans of all kinds and traditions, together with those who are still moved by the words and ac- tions of this mystic of Assist, Francis, are gathering for 'Clarefest,'" said Sister Mary Martha, She said that during this past year, "all Poor Clares have been preparing for the great celebration by a year of spiritual renewal, deepening their prayer life by deep med- itation and much reading and sharing about the life of their foundress," Sister Mary Martha said this coming year."is to be a year of sharing their riches and insight with the whole world honoring their mother and guide and proclaiming to all the people of God this woman who was a light for so many in the Thirteenth Cen- tury. On the saint's feast day, Aug. 11, the Evansville Poor Glares wilt open the year of celebration with a solemn Mass in their chapel at 11:15 a.m. celebrated by Father Daniel Manger, O.F.M, Cony. Throughout the coming year there will be other cele- brations at the monastery. Bishop Gerald A. Gettelfinger is expected to preside at a Mass -- as yet unscheduled -- for the many benefactors and friends of the commu-: nity, A reception will follow the Mass, according to Sister Mary., Martha.
