Each parish has been asked to designate one person to serve as a representative -- to receive ideas and suggestions from a diocesan committee, on possible ways to observe the Jubilee Year. Parishes are being encour- aged to write or update their histories. People at parishes and insti- tutions throughout the diocese will be asked to pray for the diocese, this portion of the Peo- ple of God, on "50 Sundays Prayer Days." Educational opportunities will be presented during the year on parish histories and on the notion of "re-founding" which is contained in the Ju- bilee theme. The theme selected for the year is "Celebrating a future re-founded on our heritage, our strengths, and our faith." The notion of "re-founded" in- cludes a return to the foundation of the diocese -- with all of the enthusiasm and energy which accompanies a new venture. The Jubilee Prayer gives thanks to God "for calling us who make up the Diocese of Evansville to share in your family banquet that we might be nourished with the Bread of Life and the cup of Salvation." lie 00erninarian Jack Durchholz will be ordained deacon November 19 Ry "'MUeL 2"LEINGANG ate degree at the same time.
