I)- Official Novena for Vocations The annual Archdiocesan Novena for Vocations to the Priesthood and the Religious Life will begin on Saturday, March 17, the Feast of St. Patrick, and conclude on Sunday, March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The fol- lowing prayer is to be recited after every Mass and at Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament in all Churches and Chapels in the Archdiocese and in all grammar and high schools at the beginning of every class day. This Novena Prayer will replace the customary Prayer for Vocations that is said daily during the month of March. At the conclusion of the Novena proper, the regular daily Prayer for Vocations will be resumed until and including Saturday, March 31. Prayer O Lord Jesus Christ, strength of those who leave all things and follow Thee, raise up, we beseech Thee, the vocations which Thy Church needs. Help our young boys to understand the happiness which comes to the priest as he carries on the work of Christ and brings God Hiznself to the altar for man. Inspire them with a burning desire to share in this priest- hood. Call other young men to our brotherhoods and young women to our sisterhoods, where in the holy life of religious communities they may imi.tate Thy virtues, carry on the education, charitable and aposto- lic works of Thy Church and travel the openroad to eternal bliss. Give us, dear Lord, zealous and apostolic priests, dedicated and self-sacrificing religiouS, brothers and sisters. Bless us abundantly with workers who will generously spend themselves for restoration of all things in Thee, and for the glorification of Thy Heavenly Father, Who, with Thee and the Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth, forever and ever. Amen. (An Indulgence of seven years can be gained in the recitation of this prayer.) Retarded Children The Reverend Pastors of King and Pierce Coun- ties are requested to announce at all the Masses in their churches on Sunday, March 18, that a house-to- house canvass is being conducted to secure funds for the Washington Association for Retarded Children.

" These were some of the ques- tions fired at the Very Rev. Michael J. O'Neill, S.S.., Rec- tor of St. Edward Seminary in the lively question and answer period at the close of the Con- ference on Religious Vocations, sponsored by St. Gerard of Overlake Court of the Catholic Daughters of America.

Encouragement from their parents is most important to a boy or girl considering a religious vocation. Parents should realize a vocation in the family is a blessing from GOd." "The requirements for a vo- cation to the priesthood are very simple," Father O'Neill stated. "Good health is essen- tial, mental ability to follow e difficult program of studies, generosity of soul, willingness to be obedient, and a love of God and willingness to love others for the love of God)' The conference was under "the direction of Mrs. John Can- trill, Vocations Chairman and Mrs. Edmund Attwood, Grand Regent of Court St. Gerard of Overlake, Bellevue.

When Pope John XXIII named Archbishop Gio- vanni Panic. as Cardinal man British Columbians re- called the Cardinal-designate's visit to Vancouver in 1958 (he was then Apostolic Delegate to Canada) and the festivities sur- rounding his visit. The occasion was a two-fold one: the centenary celebration of the province and the cen- tenary of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate in British Colum- bia. It was the latter that re- calls the name of Rev. Eu- gene Chiroase, O.M.I., often called "The Apostle of the Indians of Puget Sound" and "The Apostle of the Lure- reals." The story of this Oblate of Mary Immaculate began when the small Eugene read in a mission magazine a letter from Bishop Rosatti" of 'St. Louis, pleading for missionaries in the northwest corner of America. Intrigued with the idea, the small bey from Lyons, France, entered the Oblate Novitiate. After ordination he, togettier with four other Oblates, sailed for the United States.

The Pope expressed the hope that Catholics will show their "customary liberality" in the traditional Laetare Sunday col- lection, April 1, to be taken up in p a r i s h e s throughout the country. In a letter to the Bishops of the country, Pope John praised the "open-handed charity of American Oatholics." He said their generosity toward the world's needy "has made itself felt in al- most every land and clime, making it possible to provide food and clothing for con- siderable numbers of t h e i r hungry fellowmen, shelter for the homeless and hospitals and medicines for the sick and infirm." The Pope's letter was made public here by Catholic Relief Services -- Natiorml Catholic Welfare Conference, the U.S. Catholic overseas relief agency. The Laetare Sunday collec- tion will be the climax of the 1962 Bishops' Relief Fund Ap- peal. The appeal is seeking $5 million to support the relief program of CRS--NCWC. The Pope said, in part: The Catholics of the United States of America, by the edifying practice of t h e i r Faith and by their affection. ate devotion to Our Person, have alwdys brought warm comfort and consolation to Our fatherly heart. Notwithstanding the many demands made upon their charity, they have never wav- ered in the outstanding ex. ercise of this virtue; and it is Our pleasure, on this oeca- sien, to extend to you, Ven- erable Brothers, and to all those confided to your zeal- ous care, Our warm cam- inundation and thankfulness.
