The Messac e -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Endowment honors Bishop Shea By PAUL R. LEINGANG Message editor le A new endowment fund has been established to honor the late Bishop Francis R. Shea and to assist in the prepara- tion of priests for the Diocese of Evansville. The endowment fhnd was es- tablished by Bishop Gerald A. Gettelfinger, using an unre- stricted bequest by Bishop Shea to the diocese. Bishop Shea died Aug. 18, 1994._I n his Bishop's Forum, i-rolumn Dec. 15, Bishop Get- 2telfinger noted that Bishop Shea had left $218,000 in his will to the diocese. "Bishop Shea's love for the priesthood was one of the hall- marks of his episcopacy," said Bishop Gettelfinger. "He was always ready to assist his sem- inarians and priests in any way he could." The income generated by the Bishop Shea endowment Fund is "to provide supplemental fi- "?aancial resources for students who have formally committed themselves to a training and educational program designed to prepare them for ordination to the Roman Catholic priest- hood in the Catholic Diocese of Evansville," said Justin Clements, diocesan director of stewardship and development. The endowment fund is held and managed by the Catholic Foundation of Southwestern Indiana, Ind. Only the income generated by the endowment will be dis- ,,'tributed, Clements said. The **,principal will remain un- "touched in perpetuity. The long term goal for the endowment fund, according to Clements, "is to help it grow to a size that will generate suffi- cient income to cover all dioce- Help Wanted Holy Rosary Daycare Hours: 2:45 - 6 p.m. : Requirements: The qualifed candidate must be comfortable with chil- dren and have the ability to lead them in easy crafts.

"Currently, the diocese uses funds collected as part of the Catholic Parishes Campaign to pay for the education of stu- dents in,theology and pre-the- OO . , , "It is truly'appropriate that the Bisho p Shea Endowment was made p0ss[hle by Bishop Shea's own generosity toward the Catholic Church in south- western Indiana," Clements noted. He said the effective date of establishment was Nov. 1i, the anniversary date of the founding of the diocese. Donna Leader, the new exec- utive director of the Catholic Foundation, said additional gifts are welcome for the Bishop Shea Endowment. She said the foundation welcomes any gift which is in keeping with the intent of the Endow- ment. Leader said acceptable gifts include cash, stocks, bonds and non-traditional gift items such as real estate, objetsCart and collectibles. Donorsmay also make planned and deferred gifts to the endowment such as bequests and annuity trusts. The Catholic Foundation it- self was set up by Bishop Shea shortly before his retirement, and activated by Bishop Get- telfinger. Leader was ap- pointed as the first executive director of the foundation, Dec. 1. Her position is funded by members of the foundation's board of directors.
