2 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Worth mentioning... Thanks for the mending given Wayne Bochert, community outreach spe- cialist at Catholic Charities, has extended "a great big Thank You" to all the volunteers who helped repair sweaters for the 1996 Christmas Store. Bochert explained that 600 new sweaters were donated for the Christmas Store, howev- er most had small rips or tears in them. Catholic Charities asked for volunteers to repair the sweaters in time for distribution at the Christmas Store, which will be held Dec. 9-10 at St. Mary Church, Evansville. The response was great, and nearly all of the sweaters have been repaired, Bochert said. Rice Bowl contributions appreciated Catholic Relief Services reports that the Dio- cese of Evansville raised $31,069 in 1996 for the Operation Rice Bowl program.
