Official Archdiocesan Development Fund The Reverend Pastors are requested to announce at all Masses Sunday, April 28, that statements for the next payments on Archdiocesan Development pledges will be mailed next week. All payments on pledges should be withheld until the statements are received from Campaign Headquarters, 907 Terry Avenue, Seattle 4, Washington. Law Day A cordial invitation is extended to members of the Legal Fraternity to attend the Law Day Mass at St. Jimes Cathedral Wednesday, May 1, at 6:00 p.m. Law is an ordinance of reason designed for the common good. All just human laws are a manifesta- tion of God's Will. Both those who try to apply law to human actions and those who pass judgment on the conformity of human actions to the norm of law are engaged in a truly noble work, the fulfillment of God's Will. They can very fittingly apply to themselves the words of Psalm 118, "Blessed are the undefiled who walk in the law of the Lord. Blessed are they that search His testimonies, that seek Him with their whole heart." Today when some nations deny God and His Laws as "a guide to our feet and a lamp to our path" it is all the more necessary that we partici- pate in the observance of Law Day, which seeks to re- mind us that as a nation we are founded on the prin- ciple of law and respect for the rights of God and man. The law in western civilization sees God in orbit in the dignity and worth of every individual, protect- ing his God-given rights with every available safe- guard. The Mass next Wednesday evening will beg God's blessing on the members of the Judiciary and the bar and also on the apostolic endeavors of the Knights of Columbus. Through the Religious Advertising Pro- gram the Knights seek to make the greatest Lawgiver of all, Jesus Christ, better known and understood in our times and to enlighten men how to apply His Laws to daily life. Mass Attendance Count A tabulation of Mass attendance in all parish and mission churches, chapel and stations, where the faithful attend Mass, will be conducted at 'all the Masses Sunday, May 5, and, subsequently, on each Sunday in May.
