LEINGANG Message editor The $11 million capital cam- paign for Mater Dei and Memo- rial high schools was given a big boost in early November, with a contribution of $500,000 by the Pro-Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, Evansville. A new chapel at Mater Dei will be named in honor of Msgr. Michael Wolf, pastor of the downtown parish. The chapel at Mater Dei is one of the improvements to be made. Also to be constructed are four new science classrooms two new general purpose classrooms and an auditorium. Renovation, air- conditioning and other improve- ments are also planned. Memorial High School will add a total of 10 classrooms and an auxiliary gymnasium, and other improvements. Holy Trinity has had a history of generosity, according to Bish- op Gerald A. Gettelfinger. He noted that Msgr. Wolf and the parish have made many contri- butions over the years, and that among the beneficiaries of parish generosity are the two Catholic high schools, many individual students, Good Shepherd and St. John churches and Villa Maria, the retirement home for priests. Capital Campaign represen- tatives Alan Braun and Robert- Ossenburg met with the parish council members during their .: November meeting at Holy Trinity. After hearing their pre- sentation, the council made the decision to make the half-mil- lion dollar contribution. Evansville builder Gregory G. Kempf is general chairman of the campaign. At the campaign kickoff Oct. 10, Kempf said that $3.5 million had already been pledged. The gift from Holy Trinity brings the total to about $4.5 million.
