Ave., Jasper, IN Louisville Archdiocese, sends the collected goods to Dallas, where they are then shipped to Poland for delivery to the Soviet Union. Among the items sought in the drive are vestments, albs, surplices, altar linens, chal- ices, monstrances, incense burners, candleholders, cruets, crucifixes and rosaries large enough to hang in a church. "They definitely can use anything we send because they have nothing," Brown told The Record, Louisville's archdiocesan newspaper. "It's a privilege really," .she added, "to help serve those people, and, yes, we are mak- ing a difference. It's a .very small thing, but it's some- thing." Rebuilding the church in the Soviet Union, Brown said, will require many small- scale efforts like hers. Brown said one prayer I PLEASE PATRONIZE MESSAGE ADVERTISERS group member suggested putting notes with the sup- plies to let Soviet Catholics "know that we care about them." She said she got involved in the effort after seeing a video from The Way Home, Dallas' Catholic charismatic services organization. "It's just really an effort to reach out to the Catholic churches, primarily in these (formerly) communist-run countries where they need some help," said Father John Gephart, who is aiding the ef- fort. Parishes, he added, can "do a little housecleaning" to share with those in need. Brown said she feels com- munism has crumbled due to prayer, especially prayers of intercession to Mary. "I feel like the Lord is mak- ing it easy for us ... he's opened doors up," she said. "It's nothing that we're using all this energy. He really has opened the door up."
