10--THE PROGRESS Friday, Nov. I, 1963 i Father Szeman The Pacific Islands O most of us I think that the islands of the Pacific hold a strange attraction. It is interesting then to see what progress the Gospel has made in this vast land of Oceania. Despite the lack of workers, language problems and the vast expanse of the South Seas, great progress has been made. As late as 100 years ago, the people were cannibalistic and hostile to Catholicism; today, most of the natives, an intelligent people, show genuine respect for law and order and the Church. The Catholic population now equals 20.8 per cent of the total popu- lation of 3,123,000, and the Church is established in 32 vicariates apostolic and dioceses. A Land of Contrast Although Oceania consists of 11,000,000 square, miles, the land area is less than 150,000 square miles. Some islands boast of modern agriculture and good roads; on others, missionaries have trouble reaching "the hidden people," who live in isolated villages lost in rain forests. The climate is formidable--typhoons and tornadoes can wreak havoc in moments. The islands of Oceania are divided into three groups. The first, known as Melanesia, inchides the North and South Solo- roans, the eastern half of New Guinea, New Britain, New Cale- donia, the New Hebrides, the Fijis, the Admiralty Islands and the Loyalty group. In the second division, Mieronesia, are Wake, Truk, the Marianas, the Carolines, the Marshalls and the Gilberts. The last, Polynesia, includes Cook, the Marquess and the Society Islands. Instructing Natives a Big Problem Instructing the natives is one of the biggest problems facing missionaries in these territories, as dialects differ from island to island. In New Guinea alone, over 200 languages are spoken. Placing native catechists everywhere would seem to be the solu- tion, but in order to train a group of catechists, they would have to learn English--this is not practicable! Faced with such handicaps, one cannot hope for many native priests, but there have been some successes. New Caledonia has been blessed with eight native priests; the New Hebrides, still Society, v for The Propagation of the Faith Re .

Last year, two sons of Fiji were ordained, as was the first priest ever to come from the Atolls of the Paumoto Islands. One of the most remarkable achievements in all of Oceania was the establishment of the Faith on the Islands of Wailis and Fatuna: the entire native populatiou of 9,000 is Catholic, thanks largely to the martyrdom of St. Peter Chanel, a Marist Father who was killed on Fatuna in 1841.

The Rev. Daniel Lyons, S.J., son of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Lyons of Seat- t 1 e, Washing- ton, said this shortly before he left New York harbor on an eight- month world cruise on the University o f the Seven FR.

He also will teach advanced speech and instruct the stu- dents in the backgrounds of areas they will visit. Father Lyons will work close- ly with a Protestant chaplain aboard the liner in setting up various programs aimed at acquainting students with their responsibilities as representa- tives of the United States when visiting in foreign coun- tries. The ship will make its first call at Lisbon and continue through Europe with a stop at Rome. It will arrive in San Francisco in February, and a few days later will leave for another circle of the world, re- turning to New York June 9. Father Lyons said he hopes to arrange tours to various Catholic shrines. "The first will be a visit to the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal," he said, 58 to Receive 1st Communion At the 8 a.m. Mass Sunday, Nov. 3, 58 children of Our Lady of Fatima Parish will receive their First Holy Communion, according to Rev. Emery J. ious experience for the Catho- lics will be an audience with Pope Paul VI in the Vatican November 10. "All the students, regardless of their religious belief, have been invited to attend the au- dience. I'm sure all will wel- come such a great opportun- ity," the Jesuit priest said. Father Lyons, who spent four years studying in Europe before his ordination 12 years ago, said he also will give in- structions in Catholicism dur- ing the cruise. "First I will instruct the students on what the Catholic Church represents in a cer- iain country or area and then we can go ashore and see the he explained. "The way I look on this sea-going college is as a great move toward showing what can be accomplished when baekgrounding and travel are combined," he said. "It will be a lot of work, but I must admit it's a pretty good assignment." Dr. E. Ray Nichols, Jr. ex- ecutive director, said the Uni- versity of the Seven Seas is a nonprofit educational insti- tution incorporated under California state laws and has qualified to grant and issue college degrees and tran- scripts under the regulations of the California Department of Education.
