Vol. XVI--No. 32 Official Newspaper of the Rockford Diocese ROCKFORD, AUGUST II, 1961 O 10 PAGES My dear friends in Christ: Sunday, August 13, has been s e t aside for t h e ob- servance of Catechetical Sunday in the D i o c e s e of Rockford. Its purpose is to draw attention to the need for religious education in accordance with the teaching ministry of the Church. The clergy and people of the Diocese are indeed to be commended for their zeal in providing for the proper religious instruction of our youth. Wherever possible, schools h a v e been built both on the elementary a n d on the high school level. This Fall we expect an en- rollment of 23,000 in the grade schools and 5,000 in the high schools. Each y e a r, for the past four y e a r s, approximately 1,500 addi- tional children have been enrolled in our schools. These schools have been built and maintained f o r :our Catholic youth. Wher- - kr ever t h e y a r e available I~l~iM" i a n d accessible, therefore, 1 ~ ~ TV '.'. :, ' :~'~:' 'i:],:] :'::.: :'" ,"" ":' :I; I' ::" ~::"'!+ ' 9 I ' ': . +~:+' : .
