The Society For The Propagation Of The Faith News Notes DIOCESAN DIRECTOR: REV. THOMAS S. GREEN 442 Highland Ave., Dundee, III. , ExUmbris In Lumine From Mylapore Diocese, South India, Father Mora writes of the )rogress being made in his sem- nary for the training of native priests. In December 1946, he repm'ts a record group of ordina- tions to augment the number of indigenous clergy. "A native clergy is of inestimable value to a mis- sion land such as India, and should be encouraged at the cost of what- ever sacrifice it may entail," writes the rector of Sacred Heart Sem- inary which opened ten years ago. "However, due to lack of funds and the long, hard war period, proper equipment for the chapel' and library is still unsupplied. Books on Theology and other branches of philosophi are very much needed. Any help that can be given will be sincerely appre- ciated by the seminarians." America's Call The aim of the Glenmary Mis- sioners or Home Missioners of America, founded in 1939, is to "Labor for the conversion of the multitudes of Americans who are outside the Fold of Christ' with special reference to those who dwell in the 'Thousand Priestless I Countries,' our 'No Priest Land.' " Blue prints have been made for a spacious Mother House, but con- struction has not yet begun. Fa- ther Bishop, Superior of the order declares that "the echo of a drop- ping coin fills us with joy, the flut- tering of a bank note sends us in- to ecstasies of gratitude. Like the farmer and his barn we can't take care of our increasing harvests with a Mother House.

Mission Seminary In Colombia Bogota (Colombia)--Thanks to the initiative and apostolic zeal of the Bishop of Santa Rosa de Osos (suffragan of Medillin), H. E. Mi- guel Angel Builes, the mission sem- inary which he founded has more than succeeded in its tak of train- ing priests for the difficult work of evangelizing the scattered lopu- lations of the diocese of Santa Rosa de Osos and other areas. From modest beginnings in 1927 with only three professors and five students, this missionary institute of the secular clergy has grown heyond all expectations. Forty priests have already begun their work on the mission and over 250 students more in philosophy, theol- ogy and in the novitiate are pre- paring to follow in their footsteps. The pr'eparatory seminary is equal- ly prosperous, so that the time is not too far distant when there is hope of 200 priests being trained by this excellent institution. A yea ago the new Prefecture Apostolic of' Lahateca (Colombia) was entrusted to this Pontifical Mission Seminary of Yarumal. The Institute ah'eady has six large mission centers on the Atlantic coast.

I l ers and catechists capable of com- bating this propaganda and of steadying our people in their Ca- tholicism. However, our financial situation is such that We find it I im,)ossible to keep teachers at all the threatened places, and among our new converts of the Kisan caste, some villages are falling un- der the influence of :these ultra- Hindu agents. Money is badly needed to erect chapels and pay teachers that the natives may be kept in their good disposti0n to- ward the Church. "At the same time that we evan- gelize these people, we try to raise them socially and economically. We must help them to get rid of the many middlemen, who are making fabulous profits at the expense of i the poor cultivator. If we had a little capital to buy up their pro- duce and then sell it fox' them at the high prices prevalent in the! large centers, the gain would all go to the cultivators. A good deal has been done these last two years, bu more can and must be done to show the civilizing power of Ca- tholicism to the people of India." Enthusiastically Eloquent Good news from the Philippines! Father Samuel Sheehan, Co|umban Superior,, in Manila writes: ]J Hold on to your seat! Malatei Church is in use again. Last Sun-[ day was our Fiesta. The floor was I finished and the roof almost corn-] plete, so we ril, ged up a high altar I 'and had all the Masses in it for l the occasion. Just as well we did; ] there was a record attendance. Peo- I )le came front far and near and] even with six Masses we were not[ able to accommodate the crowds. It has caused no little excitement here. My vocal chords are com-[ pletely gone from preaching and| I have to give a mission in Linga- yen next week, but the joy of it[ would make anybody enthusiastic-[ ally eloquent." 1 Jack Ringness Named President Of Newman Club Champaign--At a recent busi- ness meeting in the Catholic stu- dent center in Champaign, Newman club members at the University of Illinois elected officers for the spring semester which begins next month. : Those elected were: Jack Ring- ness, president; Frank Bruns, vice- president; Anne Mlinarich, corres- ,)ending secretary; Mary Zannini, recording secretary; Don Guinane, treasurer, and Mary Jane Bart- lett, historian.
