OFFICIAL ARCHDIOCESE OF SEAI"rLE 1964 Lenten Regulations I) Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, falls this year on the 12th day of February. To foster the spirit of penance and of reparation for sin, to encourage self-denial and mortification, and to guide her children in the footsteps of Our Divine Savior, Holy Mother Church imposes by law the observance, of fast and abstinence. In accordance with the provisions of Canon Law, as modified through the use of special faculties granted by the Holy See, we herewith publish the following regulations: ON ABSTINENCE Everyone over 7 years of age is bound to observe the laws of abstinence. Complete Abstinence is to be observed on Fri- days, Ash Wednesday and the Vigil of Christmas.* On days of complete abstinence meat and soup or gravy made from meat may not be used at all. Partial Abstinence is to be observed on Ember Wednesdays and Saturdays, and on the Vigils of Pen- tecost and of the Immaculate Conception. On days of partial abstinence meat and soup or gravy made from meat may be taken only once a day at the principal meal. ON FAST Everyone who has reached his 21st birthday is bound to observe the law of fast until he reaches his 59th birthday. The days of fast are the weekdays of Lent, (in- eluding Holy Saturday until midnight), Ember Days, the Vigils of Pentecost, the Immaculate Conception and Chri,stmas.* On days of fast only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one's needs; but together they should not equal another full meal. Meat may be taken at the principal meal on a day of fast except on Fridays, Ash. Wednesday and the Vigil of Christmas.* Eating between meals is not permitted; but liq- uids, including milk and fruit juices, are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seri- ously affected, the law does not oblige. In doubt concerning fast or abstinence, a parish priest or con- fessor should be consulted. Persons exempt or dis- pensed from the obligation of fasting may eat meat at all meals except on days of complete or partial abstinence. ON EASTER DUTY The time for fulfilling the Easter duty extends from the first Sunday of Lent (February 16) to Trinity Sunday (May 2.4). All the faithful who have attained the age of reason are bound to receive Holy Com- munion worthily during this period. Conformity with the spirit of ecclesiastical discipline recommends that the duty be fulfilled in one's parish church. ON OBSERVANCE OF LENT We commend to our faithful daily Mass attend- ance and frequent, even daily reception of Holy Com- munion, and commend also attendance at the usual Wednesday and Friday evenLng instructions and re- ligious exercises. It is recommended that the children should be brought, wherever it is possible, to their respective parish churches on Friday afternoons in Lent for the devotk)n of the Way of the Cross, for a short instruc- tion on the Passion and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. The Sacred Congregation of Rites has reformed the entire Holy Week Liturgy. This restoration, based on thorough liturgical-historical studies, has been in- troduced for the purpose of enabling a greater num- ber of the faithful to participate in the liturgical ob- servance of Holy Week. The faithful will be properly instructed wi,th regard to the enactments of this De- cree at all Masses on the First and Second Sundays of the Passion. All are reminded that besides the obligation of fasting imposed by the Church, the season of Lent should be in a,very special manner a time of earnest prayer and meditation, of sorrow for sin, of gener- ous almsgiving to the poor and voluntary self-denial, especially regarding alcoholic drink and worldly amusements; and of fervent prayer for the intentions of our Holy Father, with particular reference to his desixes for a just and lasting peace in this troubled world, the union of all in Christ, and the success of the Ecumenical Council, Vatican II. These regulations are to be posted in the vesti- bules of all parish and mission churches, chapels, and on the bulletin boards of all parochial and prLvate schools. Additional copies may be obtained from The Chancery. Devotedly Yours in Christ, February 3, 1964 *Those who are bound to fast and abstain have the op- tion o/ [ulfilling these obligations with reterence to the Vigil o/ Christmas on either the 23rd or the 24th o/ December. Abstinence Guide The chart below is meant to assist those who must fast and/or abstain in the determination of their obligation with respect to eating of meat on speci- -fled days throughout the year.

The all day event is scheduled for June 6. By Rose Morry A "day off". for fos- ter parents, in the form of an all-day cruise and sight-seeing trip to Vic- toria B.C., will replace the traditional annual Foster Parents Dinner this year, Nor- man Allen, president of the Catholic Children's Services joint boards announced this week. The trip is being planned for Saturday, June 6. William C. Rest has been named chairman for the rec- ognition events which will be sponsored jointly by Catholic Children's Service, and the As- sembly Club. Catholic leaders will be .invited to serve as patrons , to make possible the compli- mentary cruise and "day off" program for an estimated 350 foster parents. The day's events will include breakfast on board ship, one of the Canadian Pacific's Prin- cess liners, a two and a half hour tour of Victoria on Grey Line sight-seeing coaches, in- cluding a visit to the Under- seas Gardens, and a full-course dinner aboard ship during the return voyage. A full-scale "sailing," com- plete with dock-side band and confetti, is planned, Rast said. The Canadian Royal Mounted Police and Scottish bagpipers will be on hand to welcome the group when the ship docks in Victoria. "This will be a cruise for adults only," Rast said. "We want it to be a real day off for our foster parents, and we also want it to be an oppor- tunity for them to meet each other and chat about mutual interests. "We feel that the holiday at- mosphere of a cruise will give foster parents a much better opportunity to get acquainted than is possible at a formal dinner such as we have had in the past." Rast said that the "day off" idea has been enthusiastically applauded by many who have served as dinner patrons in previous years. !ii!!!!:i: HISTORIC EMPRESS HOTEL will be among attractions when Foster Parents tour Victoria on their 'day off.' They will visit the Underseas Gardens before returning to their ship for a full.course dinner during the return voyage home. Child, Family Agencies Called To Be Interpreters of Social Service The role of the Catholic agency, d e a 1 i n g with family and child welfare, as an effective interpreter of its own philosophies of social service within the community was spelled out Tuesday in Seattle by Rt. Rev. Msgr. Ray- mond J. Gallagher, secretary of the National Conference of Catholic Charities. The Cleveland diocesan pre- late, whose headquarters are in Washington, D.C., joined 300 clergymen, social workers and laymen in an all-day confer- ence on religion and welfare at Seattle's Trinity Lutheran Church and St. Mark's Episco- pal Cathedral House. "Our own Catholic agen- cies must be effective com- munity interpreters of our service," Monsignor Gallag- her said to The Progress after his conference appear- ance. "Each child has a right to the fulfillment of his re- ligious, spiritual," cultural and family heritage. An organ- ization, acting in place of the parents, that represents these characteristics is best able to fulfull the responsibility which society has to that child." Speaking of the "encroach- ments" of a welfare state, Monsignor Gallagher pointed out that all Catholics should assert the effective performan- ces of voluntary, sectarian and non-sectarion agencies." "We must never put our- selves in a position to be weakened," he emphasized. "If we have a formula that is competent to meet the needs of children and is based right, then we ought to resolve to make it work up to the maximum of its potential." The S e a t t I e archdiocesan Catholic Charities received a high rating from the national A MEETING of national and regional officials of Catholic Charities was afforded at an conference on religion and welfare in Seattle, which was attended Tuesday by clergymen, social workers and laymen of various faiths. Priests attending the conference (from left) are Rev. Desmond Dillon, Yakima diocesan director; Rev. Bernard Schiller, Spokane diocesan director, Rt. Rev. Msgr. Raymond J. Gallagher, secretary of the National Conference of Catholic Charities; and Rev. Dennis Muehe, Seattle archdiocesan director. (Progress Photo by Forde Photographers) secretary. The top rating was given because of the caliber of the staff, its training and ex- perience, by the types of ser- vices rendered and by the sup- port of the faithful of the Arch- diocese. This constitutes a formula for further success," the Monsignor added. He pointed out that 288 sim- ilar agencies are now operat- ing in 136 dioceses throughout the country. Their future also looks brig.hter because of ex- pansion m newer fields of social action. There are now 38 boarding and day schools which provide services and instructional care of the retarded child, Eighteen dioceses, he pointed out, have N.C.W.C. Indian And Negro Collection The collection for the work of the National Cath- olic Welfare Conference and the Indian and Negro Missions shall be announced Sunday, February 9, and taken up on the first Sunday of Lent, February 16, at all the Masses in all Parish and Mission churches and in all public and semi-public oratories in the Archdiocese of Seattle. This collection is ordered by the Third Plenary Council of Baltimore by the Fourth provincial Council of Portland and has been reaf- firmed by a letter of the Holy See, August 24, 1936. The work of the Home Missions should be close to the hearts of all in our Archdiocese. We have a large Indian population in our midst, for whose care we have received from the Board of Indian Missions more than we have contributed. Surely our gratitude will not let us overlook these Missions so vital to our Archdiocese. THE CHANCERY By Order of the Most Reverend Archbishop February 7, 1964 child guidance out-patient olin. ics for the emotionally dis- turbed child. Other dioceses are also looking into the day care for children of working mothers or mothers who are ill. Monsignor hit on the im- portance of the personal res- ponsibility of each individual Catholic when he said, "There is a story of the need of the care for dependent children." Theme of the conference, held Tuesday, was "Religion and Welfare- A New Look at an Old Partnership." As the conference luncheon speaker, he said that both church and social workers need to identify with and find ways to contribute on an interfaith basis to government welfare programs. He declared t h a-t "there is room for co-planning by interfaith groups in these programs and there is a need for understanding of the new problems that affect man in this generation." On the conference program committee was Rev. Dennis F. Muehe, archdiocesan director of Catholic Charities.
