The all-day outing for the pupils
of the Sunday-school at the Domini
can cnurcn win occur on July 7 at
Fern Grove. Two boats will run,
morning ana auernoon 9:30 and
1:30. The outing was arranged to
give the children a day's pleasure
and the teachers and the pupils will
go free. The whole congregation and
their friends are invited, and for
them th.ere will be a nominal charge
to help defray the expense. The best
of order will be maintained. The
teachers have worked hard this year
and Father Logan wished to show his
appreciation and arranged the ex
cursion. An interesting feature of
the excursion will be the contest for
a fine wheel and a beautiful watch.
T,he contestants are Misses Sallie
OConnor, Katie Purcell, Loretta
Ahem, Nellie Kerr and Carrie Swift.
Refreshments and" lunches will be
served on the boats and grounds. A
pleasant outing is promised to all.
Sunday-school teaching, as well as
most gratuitous work, is a thankless
task, With the ardent co-operation
of superintendent it is still hard work.
But thera seems no lack of enthusias
tic, workers at the Dominican church.
The teachers there must have in
mind those words which said that the
teaching in the Sunday-school was
the most meritorious act of charity
that could be performed. One fa
miliar face will be missing from the
throng this year that of Rev. G.
A. Carr, the former beloved superin
tendent of the Sunday-school.
The additions to the parish house
at St. John's have about been com

the same broad lines as. the men's
universities. The site of this collece
for women is to be at the entrance of
the University grounds. The Sisters
of Notre Dame are to be in charge,
and the patronesses are among the
most notable women in the country
in the East and as far West as North

closed, and with it a great many
young men and women have been

out for themselves. The most notable
of all always is that at Nazareth, the
dear Alma Mater of so many Louis

unusually fine, and, added to the
presence of Bishop McCloskey, who
always graces the occasion there was
the appearance of Monsignor Conaty,
rector of tip university at Washing

words to the graduates. The, Xav

A new statue of Our Lady of
Lourdes is to be blessed at the 10:30
o'clock mass to-day IJuly 3 at the
church of St. Louis Bertrand. The
statue is a work of art and is do
nated by Miss Marshall, a convert
to the faith. The grotto at this
church is a resort of the pious, and
carries one's thoughts to that scene
in France where our Blessed Lady
appeared to Bernadtte, the lowly
shepherd girl. It is a faithful repro

The shrine of Our Lady of Per

to the heart of Father Deppen, and
he has determined to make the shrine
one of the finest in the country.
The last mass at the Dominican
church during the summer months
will be at 10:30 instead of 11 o'clock.
It will also be a low mass, the choir

heat of the day. On the resumption
of the Sunday school in the fall the
mass will be changed to the old time.
On Sunday, July 10, Rt. Rev.
Bishop McCloskey will confirm the
children at. the Dominican church at
3:30 in tfievafternoon. This rite was
postponed from June 19 on account
of theillness of the Bishop.
