Sunday, November 21, 1948 THE OBSERVER EDITION OF OUR SUNDAY VISITOR News Section--Page IIA Cona Conference Helps To Solve St. Joseph's Announces December 5th Session To Be In Elgin Elgin--A Cans Conference will be conducted at St. Joseph's Church, 272 Division Street, El- gin on Sunday, Dec. 5, it was an- nounced by the Rev. Joseph W. Rojemann, pastor. The enthusiastic response to the Cans movement by the laity as "well as the clergy throughout the country, and particularly in the Chicago Archdiocese has been no- table. It was explained that peo- ple have found the problems of family and marriage relationships aggravated in modern life. Th_y welcome a clear and basic expla- nation of the causes, but even more, the solutions in the light of Christian principles. Cans conferences are, attended by married couples and conducted : by a clergyman long trained in these special problems. The con- ferences are open not only to Catholic couples but others as well. '~e one at St. Joseph's December 5th will begin at the 9:30 o'clock Mass after which break(ast will be served. The short informal con- ferences during the day are inter- rupted for dinner and intermis- sions. Final discussions are "ronnd table" in nature--problems--are cited, suggestions made, and everyone speaks freely. Questions may be written--without signing them, of course--and each will be answered. The inspiring and inter. eating day closes in the afternoon with Benediction, during which the marriage vows are renewed. Best indication of the great value of this movement is the number of couples who return for gaecessive conferences. It was pointed out that the movement is a most effective antidote, for the damaging influences of modern life upon the sanctity of marriage and the stability of the family. The Cans Conference is well de- e as a fine way to armor a scribed happy marriage and peaceful fam- ily with a protection from evil in- fluences. An interesting aspect of the Cans movement is that the work of the organization, while shared by many, is always performed by units composed of husband and wife. Also, for engaged couples, pre-Cana conferences are held for young men and young women who attend separate evemng sessions. Reservations for St. Joseph's Cans Day Dec. 5 may ,be made through the rectory, 272 Division Street, or by contacting Mr. and Mrs. Howard Hake, 328 Park St., phone Elgin 2957 or the chairman, Mr. and Mrs. LeRoy Mason.

The three, on their way to find their victim, meet an old man who declares that he can inform them l of the place where they may find l "death." He directs them to aI spot in the woods outside thei .plague-stricken town.
