Archdiocese Buys THE PURCHASE of the New 'ashington Hotel at Sec- ond Avenue and Stewart Street in downtown Seattle by the Seattle Archdiocese was announced yesterday by the Most Reverend Archbishop Thomas A. Connolly. The hotel, purchased at "over a million dollars" will serve as a retire- ment home. Funds for its purchase were made possible Correct Postures i through the recent Archdiocesan Development Fund. The hotel has been owned by the Doric Company since 1955. It was originally built in 1907 hy Adolph Schmidt of the Olympia Brewery to replace the Washitgton Hotel at the top of Denny Hill torn down bek, re the hill was graded. e Epistle Gospel Sermon Creed Offertory At Mass By REV. DONALD CONGER Member Archdiocesan Commission On Liturgy and Sacred Music His Holiness Pope Paul VI, while still Archbishop of Milan, wrote in his 1958-Lenten pastoral: "The bond between people and altar has been slackened, sometimes disconnected, and now it is hard to re- establish. But it must be done . . . It is one of the principal duties of Catholic life at this time." To reunite priest and people again m common worship about Christ's altar, to bring the Catholic laity back to their rightful and honorable place within the Mass--these are, as the then Cardinal Montini once confessed, no easy tasks. But, and even since the Holy Father wrote his words in 1958, this unnatural breach is gradually being healed throughout the Church. As one of its most important contributions, our contemporary liturgical revival has reaffirmed that essential principal known as "the division of roles" and has shown us that in this too long neglected norm we have the key to most of our apparent problems regarding congregational participation. The principle of "the division of roles", a rule officially pro- claimedby the Holy See's 1958 Instruction on Sacred Music and Liturgy, simply recognizes the basic fact that the Church, the Postures At Mass Order ol Standing, Sitting and Kneeling For the Congregation Order o[ Standing, Sitting and Kneeling [or the Congregation Priest's entrance ST'AND Prayers at foot of altar KNEEL (If hymn is sung, STAND) As priest goes up to altar STAND for Introit, Kyrie, Gloria and Collect SIT STAND SIT STAND (genuflect With priest) SIT after "Dominus Mobiscum, and until final "Amen" of Offertory CanonPreface STAND during Preface and while reciting (or singing) the "Sanctus".

Our liturgy, in the words of Pope Pius XII, is "the worship rendered by the Mystical Body of Christ in the entirety of its Head and members". All baptized Catholics, beth priests and laity, are the members of that Body and all, priests and people alike, share together then in the offering of every holy Mass. But even as all the members of the human body have a function to perform and yet do not all enjoy the same function, so too this very ground plan of our liturgy also presumes that different roles and different respon- sibilflies are to be divided among the various members of Christ's Body when they come together for worship. That special and distinct role held only by the priest cele- brant has long been well understood. In the definition given by the 1958 Instruction, he "presides over the entire liturgical service". He is our leader at worship and only he can render the Sacrifice of Christ present again, We appreciate too how different functions and duties are divided among the sacred ministers (at solemn Mass), the choir members, the altar boys and others. But it is the definition and the proclamation of that precise role reserved for the worshipping laity, for the "holy people" at Mass, which in our time especially concerns the Church. In 1958, Pope Plus XII ruled that the Catholic laity must no longer be regarded as mere "strangers or mute spectators" before that altar; that the very nature of the Mass requires that all who are present take part in it, and that "the laity (Continued on Page 3) Joy Greets Archbishop Heenan's Appointment LONDON, Sept. 9 (NC)  News that His Holiness Pope Paul VI had appointed Arch- bishop John Carmel Hee- nan to the See of Westminster was greeted by the pealing of the bells .of his new cathedral here and by a promise of prayers by the head of the Church of England. Archbishop Heenan's transfer from the Liverpool archbishop- ric was welcomed, as he is generally seen as the most dominating personality in Brit- ish Catholicism. He was ex- pected to be enthroned in the Westminster Cathedral of the Most Precious Blood before going to Rome for the second session of the ecumenical coun- cil, which opens September 29. As Archbishop of Westmin- ster, Archbishop Heenan fills a void which has existed since January 22, when William Car- dinal Godfrey died. The West- minster Archbishop is auto- matically president of the Meeting of the Hierarchy of England and Wales. At the time of his appointment, the episcopal conferences of both Ireland and Scotland remained without presidents; John Car- dinal D'Alton, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, died last February, and Archbishop Donald Camp- bell of Glasgow, president of the Meeting of the Scottish Hierarchy, died in July. The appointment was wel- comed by Archbishop Arthur Michael Ramsey of Canterbury, Primate of All England, and top leader of the 40-million members of the Anglican Com- munion throughout the world. "My old friend Archbishop Heeaan will have the prayers of Anglicans throughout the country as he goes to West- minster," Archbishop Ram- sey said in a statement. Archbishop Heenan himself told the press: "My work at Westminster will be to continue the coopera- tion which is getting much greater between non-Catholics and ourselves. I am sorry to leave the North but I shall now devote myself wholeheartedly to the priests and people of Westminster." Downtown Hotel New Washington Acquired To Serve Senior Citizens The New Washington Hotel, located in down- town Seattle, vas purchased recently by the Arch- diocese of Seattle as a resi,dence for senior citizens, the Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Seattle, announced yesterday. The Archbishop said that after many months of negotiations the transaction would be completed within a few days. Over one million dollars was in- volved in the deal. The purchase of the New Wash- ington Hotel was made possible by the response to the Archdiocesan Development Fund Campaign of last February and March. Final details of the transaction are being handled by Earl Kirkpatrick, Seattle realtor, and Robert E. Tobin, representing the Archdiocese. The newly acquired residence for senior citizens will not be conducted as a deluxe retirement home. It will be devoted to the interests of the Social Security group of retired persons, those in the moderate income class. The New Washington, one of Seattle's older and more ele- gant hostelries, will accommodate over 300 guests in its 250 rooms. It will be conducted on a hotel basis, with day to day, week to week and month to month tenancy. It will put the senior citizens in the main stream of community life, where they will be close to bus lines, the shopping and theater districts, as well as the increasingly popular Seattle Center. The guests will be free to come and go as they like. The new residence will be staffed by four Sisters of St. Joseph of Newark, as well as by a business manager. A regis- tered nurse will be in attendance at all times. A resident chap- lain will likewise be on hand to minister to the spiritual needs and welfare of the guests. Accommodations will range from deluxe penthouse suits to single rooms and apartments for married couples and others, Meals will be available in the gestaurant or cafeteria. The spa-: cious lobby will contain the chapel, lounges and the dining room. The mezzanine floor will be devoted to game and card rooms, TV rooms, library and reading room, sewing room, etc. Reservations will probably be accepted in a month or S0, after the hotel is partially renovated to serve more exactly the purpose for which it has been purchased. In making the announcement, Archbishop Connotly said he has long realized the pressing need of providing care and shelter for the ever-increasing numbers of retired men and women, the senior citizens of this present day and age.

Kramer, Ph.D. The nuclear test ban treaty undoubtedly is not one of the most mo- mentous issues in our history, despite what some people seem to think, but it is still holding top spot in the news. Now that it has moved to the floor of the Senate this week some of the problems connected with it are becom- ing more evident. For one thing, few Senators have unconditionally approved it in all its aspects, although the majority have expressed their willingness to vote for its ratification. The word "risk" recurs fre- quently, even in statements by its supporters, but the explana- tion is quickly added that de- spite the risks, the merits of the treaty outweigh its dan- gers. Most of the emphasis has been placed on the military and security aspects and very little on the political implications. Above all, little evidence has been offered to show its positive values in advancing the cause of true peace. The embattled Senators seem to be caught up in a web of such uncertainties that they have lost the zest for real de- bate and prefer to let the treaty be ratified largely by default. It would seem probable that the vote for ratification will re- (Continued on Page 5) First of Vol. 66--No. 37 'r,oS,,on,  41 Seaffle, Wash., Friday, Sepf, 13, 1963 l FIRST SECTION New Washington Has Historic Past .............. 2 Father Treacy Visits Moscow 3 (Editorial) ............... 4 Specific Actions Before the Wedding .............. 5 Development Office Set at Providence ............. 6 Msgr.
