On the lower level are the community hall and a large meeting room. The hall has a 400 assembly or a 200 dining capacity.

'S 'What Pope John Re,gn Has 00eanf to Me " V An Amer,can Cat:nol,c By GERALDINE ANN HELT Holy Names Academy Not a radical, not a reformer, but a quiet and cunning revolutionary; yes, that's the John XXIII I remember. He came to the papacy attuned to the out- side world, ready to break the isolation of cen- turies between it and the Church. Trying to stay above all worldly ruin, the Church clung to ancient formulations, to old words, whether they made sense to moderns or not, and John XXIII knew that this position could not be sustained because men did not believe, did not receive the Message. He explicitly stated that the substance of the deposit of faith is one thing, the manner in which it is expressed is another, for he knew that it was not only possible but neces- sary to clothe the teachings of the deposit of faith in forms both accessible and attractive to the way men think today. With these stated words and many more stored thoughts, he set in motion the great ecu- menical movement which will always be a distinguishing mark of his reign. The move that the Church made from wariness of new trends in the secular world to frank confrontation of them was visible in the space of a year and is gradually affecting all Christians and men of good will. For once there was a Pope who, despite his deep spirituality, seemed truly human; who could be a personal friend to everyone, if they'd let him. John XXIII understood the religious needs of all, but especially of the laity of the Church, who, if not given a more active share in social worship to which they are entitled by their baptismal character and by the nature of the liturgy itself, would fall gradually silent and cease to take part in public worship. He realized that the insights of each gen- eration add something to doctrine and give it a new life and relevance, rhus, John XXlII freely gave of himself, not letting anyone re. e strict his actions which often were viewed as too informal for someone ot his position. He refused to limit his interest to only his Catholic population, but was determined to help even "the separated brethren" to "join in seek- ing the unity of Christian 10re." Fortunately, whenever this world needs at. extra portion of this treasure of love, God sends a great like John XXIII whose sincerity, faith, and stirred even the most indifferent of men. By giving me, a you, a greater responsi- bility in the Church, he vas opening my eyes wider to Christian values and human dignity which would help make me a mature Christian. To be a mature Christian is becoming increas- ingly important today, becatte too few people, d, realize that true worship is  response and responsibility. It is first a response to God's merciful initiative and then, a responsibilty for the con- cerns and welfare of God's peope. This is the basic ladder hieh I must climb to achieve the internal renewal of the Church and the Christian unity and peace which John XXIII outlined and began for today and the future. Probably the best way to describe the great. ness of Pope John's gift to the w0rld and to me is to quote the words of his Fixate secretary, Monsignor Loris Capavilla: "The Holy Father has planter a seed, but somebody else will reap the harvest." By co-operating with the Counci;s decisions I, too, can fully benefit from te dynamid changes started by the man with the bright, friendly smile and open heart . . . my own Pope John XXIII.
