November 25, 1994 The Message --for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana 7 k Academy student Sofia Alfaro and Sister visit with a patient during their hospital ng around an Heights to others has been special clowning [gh the Cam- lepartment at Academy, the Seven-week class, explored the many including ap- and developing their own clown personality. "It's a fun way to be with peo- ple and it is very rewarding to see people respond to our pres- ence," said Sister Jenny Schmitt. "Our focus is more on ministry than on clowning." To practice their newly-earned clown skills, the group has visited the elderly in nursing homes and children who are hospitalized. "I like to see happiness in people, and if I can bring it to them, why not?" said Lenor Ruiz. Fernanda Bours said she finds clowning fun "because I can be another person. I can do things that I wouldn't normally do." Thankfulness Melissa Mackey, a student at Washington Catholic Middle School, Washington, recently completed an assignment of "What Thanksgiving Means to Me." Her teacher, Sister Brenda Engleman, sent Melissa's re- sponse to the Message because "I thought her thoughts were moving." Her are Melissa's comments: Thanksgiving is a holiday in which we thank God for every- thing we have. I am thankful for my academic ability. With it, I could get into a good college and get a good job. I am thankful for Washington Catholic. I have friends and teachers who care about me. It is my second home. I am thankful for shelter, food, and clothes. Without them it would be very hard to live. And last, but not least, I am very thankful for my family. One night I got lost. All I could think about was how much my family meant to me. I realized my/'am- ily is the most important thing in the world. This is what Thanks- giving means to me. ii !!ii!iii! ii:i : ....  of Washington Manor, who come to Nativity for Mass and other front row, Selma Irvin, Lawrence Kercher, second row, Betty Harris, assistant, Dean Jacobs, Roman Kropp, back row, Dee Tremper, assis- , John Bond, driver. e,evator priest of the Diocese of Evans- Church, Celestine, include Ed ville, celebrates his birthday Reckelhoff, Ramona Buech- Dec. 4.
