(Number 491) Retirement collection coming Hbw much does a man or woman religious get paid in the United States? The annual stipend ranges from a high of $29,558 down to a low of $3,600, according to the U.S. Catholic Conference. The average is under $15,000, accord- ing to the USCC -- not enough for a typical religious com- munity to put away for future needs. The seventh annual special appeal to help pay for retire- ment costs for religious will be held Dec. 10-11 in the Dio- cese of Evansville and throughout the United States. I ii I SCHNEIDER 1994: Anniversary shared. COMMENTARY By CLEO M. ZIRKELBACH 1944 was a year of great di- mensions. None of us of that era can forget D-Day, June 6. A great sigh of relief would be forthcoming in the not-too-dis- tant future. The end of World War II was nearing. There would be more bloodshed, much more suffering and anxi- ety, but we felt a certainty about the coming of the end. The emergence of the Dio- cese of Evansville was taking place amid much spiritual in- terest and speculation. This was occurring, but full compre- hension was not possible for me. You see, Catholicism for me was also just emerging. I, too, am celebrating a fiftieth anniversary. When D-Day finally came, the effects were world-wide. That was just the beginning, however. Much work lay ahead to attain and maintain world peace. There may be a parallel here due to decisions and prepara- tions with definite goals ahead, which are necessary to attain and maintain peace and satis- faction. When the Evansville Dio- cese came into being, South- JOHN MANGIN Owner western Indiana was the focal area and 12 counties were de- veloped into a Catholic Dio- cese. Much work lay ahead to attain and maintain a diocese supplying the spiritual needs of its people giving them satis- faction and peace. My acceptance of the Catholic faith on that early morning, when I, with our young son, quietly approached rthe communion rail, was just the beginning. Our very first Holy Communion was given us by Father Gabriel, who was my instructor. We insignificantly knelt and received the sacred host for the first time. Others around us were not aware -- just us, Father Gabriel and God. That was just the beginning, as Father Gabriel advised. In- structions must continue. Much work (learning) lay ahead to attain satisfaction and peace.:l uing to read and stu( learn was essential. A sense of direction view and, at last, a realization of was observed. Once a goal has reached there is no Good deeds must to attain and faction and peace. There is no way to the impact of these world, this diocese family. In our might have been may been rewarding, as! found to be, satisfaction to For the world, the and our family, year of turning great dimensions, a year to remember.
