14 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Se Unit ,t Members of the Nia Dancers welcome parishioners and hon- ored guests at "Unity Celebration '96" at St. John Church, Evansville. Diane Northington is the director of the troop. "Nia" is a Swahili word for "Purpose," one of the seven prin- ciples celebrated at Kwanzaa. -- Message photo by Paul R. Leingang Contiuned from page 1 and representatives attending included Holy Rosary, St. Mary, Sacred Heart, St. Anthony and Good Shepherd, all in Evans- r ville; St. Joseph, Princeton, and Old Cathedral, Vincennes. Concelebrating with Bishop Gerald A. Gettelfinger were Father Kenneth Herr, recently o appointed as sacramental minis- ter at St. John; Father Earl Rohleder, former pastor and parish administrator, and Father Vernon Huguley, a priest from the Diocese of Birmingham who is pastor of two Afro-American parishes in Montgomery, Ala., Following the Gospel rehding, the choir's song of response, "Have Your Way, Lord," brought comment from Bishop Gettelfin- ger in his homily. "Do you really mean that?" the bishop asked. A few scat- tered replies of "Amen" and "Yes" came from the congrega- tion. His repeated questions brought a more enthusiastic response. "Then you mean that what you want is 'not my way, but Jesus' way,'" the bishop said. The response was even louder, assenting to the call for unity in Jesus. Bishop Gettelfinger, with the help of Sister Nesmith called forth the youngest member of the parish --Andre Johnson -- and the oldest -- Celina Buckn- er. He presented them with a "Mercury dime" -- which has a design on its back of a Roman symbol of power, a bundle of sticks surrounding an ax. One stick can be broken, but there is strength in unity, he said. Bishop Gettelfinger re-told the story of the man with. ten children, each of whom gathered two sticks. Each of them could break a stick, but none of them, from the youngest to the oldest, could break the bundle of. ten sticks tied together. Bishop Gettelfinger conclud- ed with another image of church in his homily and repeated it at the conclusion of the Mass. With the fingers ot  both hands intertwined and folded down- ward, and both index fingers pointed skyward, he invited the congregation to join him with the words of a children's game: "Here is the church, here is the Ed. L. Lee Mortuary 101 North Meridian Street Washington, IN 254-3612 In Loving Memory of Marguerite Jasnowski Miller steeple, open the are the people." :: Sister Nesmith the people in attend banquet at parish door to the church.
