is being erected by the Belgian Cath
olics of tho city at Twenty-fourth
street and Eighth-and-a-half avenue, is
nearing completion. The erection of
this church, and the separation of the

month, and the first church service is
to be held in the new temporary
frame structure Jan. 22. After that
time the services will be held regu

at 10:30 o'clock. Sunday school at 2:30,
and benediction at 3 o'clock in the af
ternoon. In order to raise a portion of tho
fund necessary for the new work, a
bazar will be held at the church, from
Jan. 7 to 10. This will he the first
time that the new structure will bo
used. The work is meeting with tho

of the public. It should be stated. Such
disappointments are welcome. There
