The Message --for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana October; A heavenly touch at Sts. Peter and By MARY ANN HUGHES Message staff writer the archways of each class- room. Powers began working on the angels at her home. She created a baby angel for the nursery school door and younger looking angels for the primary grades. The older grades received older-looking angels. Along the way, she began naming her angels, two for her daughters, Lisa and Lori, and one angel for Kerry Wilzbacher, a Haubstadt na- tive who recently died in a plane crash. Wilzbacher's three children attend Sts. Peter and Paul School. To add to the heavenly theme, stars and clouds were hung throughout the school's hallways and a deep royal blue paint was used for the trim. "We wanted the students to feel safe and warm," Lattner said, "and it really does give that feeling." Angels are watching over the students at Sts. Peter and Paul School, Haubstadt, thanks to the creative talents of Susie Powers. Last spring, Haubstadt prin- cipal Paula Lattner took a good look at her school and decided some remodeling was in order. When she asked her parents for financial assistance, they responded with over $900 in contributions. At the beginning of the re- modeling project, Lattner was hoping to create an atmos- phere that would make her students feel "safe and warm" She decided on a heavenly touch. Susie Powers, an artist liv- ing in Fort Branch, was asked to paint pictures of angels which would be placed above Haubstadt DRE will live in parish center Susie Powers painted angels for each doorway at Sts. Peter and Paul School, Above is the nursery school angel. -- Message photo by By MARY ANN HUGHES Message staff writer When Becky Epperson fin- ishes her work as the Director of Religious Education at Sts. Peter and Paul Church, Haub- stadt, she doesn't have |hr to go to get home. All she has to do is walk upstairs. She is the new tenant at the recently remodeled parish cen- ter. For the past three months, parishioners at Sts. Peter and Paul have been working to turn the 50-year-old convent into a parish center. Headed by Ron and Martha Seib, volun- teers have laid carpet, cleaned woodwork, installed new doors, and gutted the bathrooms. They have also repainted the entire building, under the di- rection of Steve Witzlmcher. Epperson said the decision to renovate the convent was made because the school build- ing was being "overused. We wanted to get meetings and re- ligious education classes moved from the school." Since the remodeling project ended, the building has become avail- able for scout meetings, CCD classes and all parish meet- ings. Although the basement and first floor were immediately appropriated for parish needs, the second floor remained un- used. When Epperson ap- proached her pastor, Father Francis Schroering, about renting the upstairs, "he said, 'you don't want to be so close to your work.' But I fell in love with this house and decided I wanted to rent here." Becky Epperson opens the door to her new home, the parish center at Sts. Peter and Paul Church, Haubstadt. -- Message photo by Mary Ann Hughes "SERVING ELBERFELD AREA SINCE 19 WITH DEPENDABILITY DIGNITY & DISTINCTION Three Locations To Serve You IMI'SON- Y E I| .m/ " FUNERAL HOME V"-'J 424-9288 c006M8,00i EV00NSV,L00E II I III I Peoples [ "llJ ![|PSOI IilB00 Trust P-omrmnv FUNERAL HOME SOUTH v P'"/MAIN STREET L 104 WOOD mBT 104 W000  853-8314 " .
