Our Holy Father, Pope Paul VI, has occupied the Chair of Peter for just one year and he has made a tremendous impact on the entire world during his short pontificate. His reign has been marked by a paternal interest in.and a sympathetic understanding of the ills that affect his flock over the face of the earth. The illiteracy, the hunger and abject poverty as well as the persecution, the oppression and acute suffering that are the lot of so many of the world's people, all touch the heart of the Holy Father with b Ik een intensity. He appeals to us today to help him F W'to help those who are crying out to him in their need. It is incumbent on each and every one of us, therefore, to console the heart, of our Holy Father, in the midst of his world-wide trials by a spiritual offering of our prayers for a lasting peace in union with his intentions and in a material way to aid him substantially in responding to the appealing cries for that continue reach him from side.

Spiritual Powerhouse in Vashon J? . . a? Ctnrfirat, er ifs Chr VASHON -- The new Long, pastor of The Immacu- but residing in St. Patrick s in e D nisttYab h 'iSn Archbishop of Seattle St. John Vianney Church late, and Rev. William J. Paw- Tacoma, began construction of ts N.B. The foregoing letter is to be read at all the er, pastor of H,ly Rosary Par- St. Patrick's in 1923, the same 1953, listed this year 127 chil- Masses in all parish and mission churches and all public and semi-public oratories Sunday, June 21. and Confraternity Center here was described Sunday "as a powerhouse of the island that will serve to generate spir- itual energy among the faithful of Vashon" by the Most Rever- end Thomas A. Connolly, Arch- bishop of Seattle. The occasion was the dedica- tion of the new parish plant here. The .Archbishop officiated at the ceremony, delivered the sermon and administered the Sacrament of Confirmation dur- ing a "typical sunny Vashon day" that will be long remem- bered on this commuters' para- dise. St. John Vianney's, estab- lished June 12 by the Arch- bishop as the parish seat of Vashon, succeeded to that status St. Patrick's in Dockton on Maury Island, now a mission of the new parish. The Confirmation ceremony itself in the newly-completed church was another mile- stone in archdiocesan history because the rite had been said in the vernacular to mark the initial use of Eng- lish during Confirmations in the Archdiocese. An overflow congregation of more than 400 attended the solemn high Mass, celebrated by Rev. Victor A. Cloquet, pas- tor. Present in the sanct'mry was the Most Reverend Thomas E. Gill, V.G., Auxiliary Bishop of Seattle. Chaplains to the Arch- bishop were Rev. Edmond ish, both in Seattle. In his sermon, Archbishop Connolly paid tribute to the role played by the Theodore Berry family in the history of church development here. The first parish Mass on Vashon and Maury Islands was said on Labor Day in 1921 in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Ber- ry. Since then the Berrys and other pioneer parishioners have provided volunteer service and financial aid in the growth of the Church here. Confirmed Sunday by the Archbishop were 44 children and six adults. Among those in attendance at this dedication ceremony also were approximately 15 Sisters of the Holy Names from nearby Holy Names Villa in Portage on Maury Island and whose community has provided the educational llnk in the parish. The parish plant, including the new $154,845 church and CCD center, is situated on about a 1O-acre site at llJth Ave. S.W. and 168th St. here. The rectory is about one and a half blocks away. The parish plant's completio n and dedication marks some 43 years since the late Rev. Hu- bert Mertens came to Dockton in 1921 to say Mass for the first time in the Berry home. There were recorded 15 Cath- olic families then. Father Mertens, then pastor of St. Nicholas' in Gig Harbor year of dedication. In 1932 Father Mertens was succeeded by Rev. Robert Kreutz, who served until 1932. Father Kreutz died in 1991. The Jesuit Fathers of Bel- larmine High School in Ta- coma was asked by the late Bishop Edward J. O'Dea to care for St. Patrick's. In 1940 the parish was made a mis- sion of Seattle's Holy Rosary Parish with the administra- tion still under the Jesuits. The list of Jesuits at Dockton is headed by the Most Rever- end Francis Gleason, S.J., now Bishop of the Diocese of Fair- banks, who served Vashon par- ishioners in 1942. Others are Jesuit Fathers Egan Mailman, William Benn, Charles Cough- lin, James Forster, Hugh Geary, Frances E. Burris, How- ard Luger, Joseph P. Logan, Francis Harrington, J o s e p h Grady, Paul Buchanan and John V. Sneeringer. Archbishop Connolly avvoint- ed in 1956 Pev. James Buck, now at St. Mary's of Contralto, as first resident pastor. The Archbishop also raised St. Pat- rick's to a parish level. F a t h e r Cloquet succeeded Father Buck in February of 1960. Today there are 180 fami- lies, numbering about 550, in the parish. Among the lay organizations are the pioneer St. Patrick's Guild, St. Brid- get's Guild, Holy Name So- ciety and the CYO. dren and 47 high school stu- dents. These notes are legacies of devoted members of the parish and of Vashon citizens. Be- sides the Berry's, they include John Martinolich, Mrs. E. J. Adams, Patrick Heney, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Johnson, John Denning, Joseph Huber and sons, Ralph Olson, Donald Cad- man, Charles Welch, James Neal, retired Methodist min- ister Roy. Peter Haugland. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Svoboda and Wallace Ashby. The latter names were among those responsible in providing volunteer labor and services to remodeling the former Massa Mukai house for use as the new parish rectory and to help- ing establish St. John Vianney's on the north part of the prop- erty. In the early history of the parish most of the Catholics lived at Doekton. But with the advent of island roads and a good ferry system to Seattle, the population shifted to the north part of the island. The picturesque fishing fleets of the past were replaced by the suburban families who daily commuted to work in Seattle. The first Mass in the Vashon area was offered in the Scout cabin. Because of limited space, the site was transferred to the Vashon Island Club House. For 15 years, the club house became the Vashon "church" until last Sunday. Senate Cloture Vote 'End of Beginning' (Continued From Page 1) jibe with my concept of the "is essentially moral into the chamber moments be. and frequent finger shaking. But even making necessary al- lowances, his speech was a pe- culiar document. He b e g a n, promisingly enough, by remarking that his- tory's judgment on the Sen- ate's handling of the rights bill would lie "not in the length of time the debate has been before the Senate, not in the number of words spoken on the floor of the Senate, but in the results." Soon, however, he was cit- ing "the long list of Negro citizens who have achieved prominence in so many fields" as an argument against the rights bill. H i s point was that successes by Negroes prove there are no "insuperable" barriers fac- ing them. He went on to define equal rights in the American system as the right of each citizen to acquire property and exercise "total dominion" over it. Since the civil rights bill would put some limits on some dominion over some property, it is a blow to democracy, he said. Next the senator gave voice to the resentment of southern legislators over the support of many churchmen for the rights bill. It was perhaps his closest approach to asperity. "I have observed with pro- found sorrow the role that many religious leaders ha v e played in urging passage of the bill," he said, "because I cannot make their activities proper place of religious lead- ers in our national life. During the course of the debate, we have seen cardinals, bishops, elders, stated clerks, common preachers, priests, and rabbis come to Washington to press for the passage of this bill. They have sought to make its passage a great moral issue. "But I am at a loss to un- derstand why they are 200 years late in discovering that the right of dominion over private property is a great is- sue today. "This is the second time in my life an effort has been made by the clergy to make a motel question out of a po- litical issue," Russell added a little later. "The other was pro- hibition." Senator Humphrey took the floor for two minutes to recall the "Crispin Crispian" speech placed by Shakespeare in the mouth of Henry V before the battle of Agincourt. "I say to my colleagues of the Senate that perhaps in your lives you will be able to tell your children's children that you were here for Amer- ica to make the year 1964 our freedom year," he de- clared. Not to be outdone in literary allusion, Senator Dirksen quot- ed Victor Hugo: "Stronger than all the armies is an idea whose time has come." The civil rights i.ue, Dirk- sen said in easily the day's most e I o q u e n t statement, in character. It must be resolved. It will not go away. Its time has come. Nor is it the first time in our history that an issue with moral connota- tions and implications has swept away the resistance, the fulminations, t h e legalistic speeches, the ardent but dubi- ous arguments, the lamenta- tions and the thought patterns of an earlier generation and pushed forward to fruition." The cloture vote began at t1:08 and was over in just sev- en minutes. Most of the sena- tors spoke their "aye" or fore the voting began. All 10O s e n a t o r s voted, which meant that 67 voes-- two-thirds of those present and voting -- were needed for approval of cloture. A little sigh of relief went up from the spectators when Senator J. Williams of Delaware east his "aye." It was the 67th. Thus for the sixth time in history and the first time in a civil rights debate the senate had invoked cloture. The final tally showed 71 for, 29 opposed.

THE CHANCERY By Order of the Most Reverend Archbishop June 19, 1964 President Asks Renewed 00aHle On Human Misery WORCESTER, Mass. (NC)President Johnson urged here that Americans fight poverty, disease and the problem of dimLnishing natural resources with the same determination they have brought to the cold War. "These are the problems which will persist be- YOnd the cold war," the President told the graduating lass of Holy Cross College June 10. "They are the inDus obstacles to man's ef- said the U. S. plans to "move ahead with plans to devise a world-wide weather system" using satellites and facilities of "all industrialized countries." The President interrupted his prepared remarks to note that the Senate, at the time he was speaking, invoked clo- ture on the civil rights bill, thereby setting a limit to de- bate and ensuring a vote soon on the measure. "We are going ahead to end pov- erty and racial injustice and we are going ahead on civil rights," he said. In concluding he referred again to President Kennedy and Pope John and said their message "flowed from the mesage that burst upon the world 2,090 years ago  a mes- sage of hope and redemption not for a people or for a na- tion, but for all people and every nation." "We now can join knowledge to faith, science to belief, to realize in our time the ancient hope of a world which is a fit home for man," he said. Prnc, rs ;n Duncan Scott Adds Marshall To Firm Name fort to build a great world so- ciety -- a place where every man can find a life free from hunger and disease -- a life of- fering the chance to seek spir- itual fulfillment unhampered by the degredation of bodily misery." Some 22,000 people jammed le Holy Cross stadium to hear Chief Executive, and an estimated 150,090 to 200,000 others lined the streets of Worcester to see him. In presenting his vision of a world without want and needless suffering, Mr. John- son invoked the memories of "two of the great men of this entury," Pope John XXIII nd President Kennedy. "They beth left a world transformed by their triumphs and lessened by their leaving," he said. "They both handed on a heritage of hope, a vision of the future which will occupy the thought and labors of men for generations to come." Even if peace is achieved, he nid, "we will only have taken first step toward final ful- llment of the hopes of Pope John and President Kennedy." "For just the the cold war has consumed our energies, it has often limited our horizons," he declared. "We have tended to place every challenge in the context of conflict, to regard eve.ry difficulty as part of a tnruggle for domination." Appealing for a global war poverty, Mr. Johnson said the current per capita prod- uct old developed countries is $1,730, compared with $143 in developing countries. "And the gap is widening, not narrow- ing," he added. On disease, the President pointed out that every year three million people die from Ueyberculosis, five million from sentary, 50,000 from meas- s, and that in some coun- 'ies one-sixth of the popula- tion suffers from leprosy.  "Yet we have the knowl- edge to reduce the toll of these diseases and a v e r t these millions of separate ' tragedies of needless death tend suffering," he said. He also pointed to a U. S. rogram which, in the past ear, has resulted in immuniz- ing one-fourth of the suscept- qble population in seven West 'African countries against meas- J . . .
