I'm glad w2 have 12." This was f : unsolicited tes- timonial of Mary Kay Swift mother of 12 young children-- the oldest 13 and the youngest a month. Members of Sacred Heart Parish, Lacey, the family gathered together to drive to Seattle last Sunday for the bap- tism of the youngest, Karen Joanne, the twelfth child, and therefore specially honored by the Most Reverend Archbishop Thomas A. Connolly. Mary Kay and John Swift, with their 12 live in the Tanglewild area of Olympia, in a new home John just fin- ished building on a 20-acre site, the rest of which he is subdividing. A professional engineer, John S w i f t has his own business, John D. Swift & Associates and does land surveying. Born in Boise, Idaho, he en- tered the service and eventually graduated from the University of Washington. While there he was president of the Newman Club where he met his wife-to- be. Mary Kay was bet n in Olympia, but was reared in Seattle, attending UW also. Married at Blessed Sacra- ment Church, Seattle (parish of her folks, Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Robbins) the Swifts soon moved to Olympia where he worked for Puget Sound Power and Light and even- tually went into business for himself Engineering runs in the fam- ily for Mr, Robbins is a profes- sor of electrical engineering at UW and knew his son-in-law as a student in college. As one of seven children, Mary Kay had always wanted a large family although 12 wasn't specified. When asked what the most difficult part in having 12 children was, Mrs. Swift couldn't think of an an- swer! But the best part was easy -- "taking care of each other and helping mother." Their new home boasts five bedrooms -- one a virtual dormitory where the six girls sleep "and they love it." their mother added.

C. Heib Jr.) EVERETT -- When A n n Maureen Miniken was born September 8 her 11 brothers and sisters along with her parents, Donald and Kathleen Miniken, thought this was a big day. But the real thrill come last Sunday when little Ann was personally received i n t o the Church by the Most Reverend Archbishop Thomas A. Con- noUy in St. James Cathedral, Seattle. "It was wonderful for all the children and for us, too," Mrs. Miniken said Members of St. Mary Magdalen Church, Everett, they were accom- panied to Seattle by their pastor, Rev. William Lane. The Minikens have four chil- dren attending St. Mary Mag- dalen School, Micheal and Mary attend South Everett Junior High, Edward goes to Cascade High School and the oldest son, Donald Jr., is at St. Edward Seminary in Ken- more. Married in St. John Church, Seattle, in 1942, the Minikens soon moved to Everett where Donald is a fuel oil dealer. Neither ever considered the dPOSsibility of having 12 chil- ran, "It never even entered our minds," Kathleen Mini- ken laughed. "I was an only child and my husband is one of two children." They had met at the tender age of 12 at Keyport where Donald was reared and where Kathleen was visiting an aunt. Kathlen had graduated from St. Margaret Grade School and Holy Angels High School. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Grant Riley, live in Edmonds, Don- ald's parents are dead. The Minikens nine-imdroom home provides ample room for the ever-increasing family. For recreation the children love to go skiing at Stevens Pass in the winter with their dad. In the summer they head for Lopez Island where Kathlean's parents maintain a summer home. Donald Miniken's o t h e r recreation besides his 12 chil- dren is his stereo-phono- graph. "When things get too hectic," Kathleen Miniken laughed, "he just turns the volume as loud as possible." Going to Mass on Smtday is a split-shift operation as it is in many large families. "The 16-year-old takes the smaller ones to 9:15 Mass and we go earlier," Kathleen explained. With no freezer, Mrs. Mini. ken does her grocery shopping by phone--"It's worth it . . . the time I save." Her only problem in raising 12 is "get- ting them through adolescence . . that's the worst stage." Seminary Accredited MARYKNOLL, N.Y.
