Mrs. Dakin is on duty from 10 to 6 weekdays with Legionnaires taking over until the eight o'clock closing time, Legion of Mary members also act as voluntary reception- ists during the Saturday hours. The center is conveniently close to Catholic Charities, the St. Vincent de Paul Society central office and other arch- diocesan social agencies which are housed in the same building. The Catholic Information Center was established for the convenience of all persons (Catholic and non-Catholic) to give information concerning the beliefs and practices of the Catholic Church, The center has for its sole purpose the "promotion of goodwill and understand- ing." To this end, the center strives to reach out to those who may not even be able to cast their shadow at the entrance or voice over the phone. A free ins ,ruction course by mail .is offered. There are no obligations, no callers. The entrance at 910 4th Ave. could be the "main door" and "open door" for all those seeking the True Faith and the way to Rome and "home." A nyone desiring to help further the work of the Catholic Information Center may send contributions directly to the arch- diocesan agency.
