Parish Founded in 1906 Fr. John J. Cahalan was ap pointed the first pastor in 1905 by Bishop Hartley. Early in the summer of 1906, Bishop Hartley and Father Dennis A. Clarke, pas tor of Holy Family parish at the Fr. William F. Maloney time, met with Joseph and Eliza beth Bopely to determine a site for the new church. As a result of this meeting the land between Midland and Clare don Avenues on West Broad Street was purchased. The lot was 150 feet deep. Thirty-five families were in the parish limits at this time. Temporary Church A temporary church was es tablished in a storeroom just west of Claredon Avenue in a store room and at 9 a.m., August 19, 1906. Father Cahalan celebrated the first Mass, there. The cornerstone for th* com bination school, church end rec tory was laid on October 28, 1906. The two-story structure completed th* following year still stands and houses the •ighth-grades.

Father Cahalan Retires In April, 1910, Father Cahalan, due to serious illness, retired his pastorate and Father* Rudolph Schwarz, St. Patrick's Church, Buchtel, was appointed the new pastor. During th* 1913 flood, which ravaged the lower West Side of th* city, many people found refuge at St. Aloysius. Beds were set up in the school and the homeless were housed in the church hall and members of the parish opened their homes to the refugees. As a result of the kindness shown to Catholics and non Catholics during the flood, many families remained in the parish, making their homes on the Hill top. Father Schwarz started a building fund in 1920 as the par ish now had more than 350 fam ilies. By 1923 the four classrooms were not enough and Mr. Frank J. Colburn of the parish com pleted plans for the school annex which was to house the additional classrooms. The annex still stands today and has been used as a cafeteria and parish hall. With the decision to build a new church, Father Schwarz aided by his friend, Father Adalbert Centner, of the Ponti (Continued on Page 2) Lorain Priests Sanction Appeals Drive LORAIN, Ohio—(NC)—Pastors of the Catholic churches here have reached an agreement with officials of the United Fund Ap peal concerning the allocation of this year’s funds. The officials have agreed to re duce this year’s goal by $40,000. This was the amount originally earmarked as a building fund to construct a Salvation Army cit adel. Th* pastors withdrew their objection to th* allocation of funds to th* Young Women's Christian Association after they were informed the money was to be used for maintenance and not for a new structure. Last week the Lorain Deanery Committee distributed leaflets warning parishioners they “could not properly contribute” to the fund because to do so would be “tu recognize forms of religion” promoted by Protestant organi zations. It was pointed out in the leaflets that a precedent would be established because in the past the funds have been used only for operation and main tenance and not for construc tion of new buildings. The leaflets were distributed, said leather Vincent O’Day, sec retary of the priests’ committee, after letters of objection to the fund officials were either ignor ed or not given courteous treat ment. The ^avxiolic Times Columbus 16, Ohio, Friday, October 12,1956 Avoid Politics As Group But Vote Men Told WASHINGTON—(NC) In a message to all its affiliated or ganizations, the National Council of Catholic Men has called atten tion to the Holy Father’s admini tion to Catholic Action groups against becoming involved in po litical controversy. But at the same time, the NCCM urged all its affiliates to remind individual members of their obligation to register and vote “as they believe to be the best interest of their community and our nation.” The action was taken at a meet ing of the executive committee of the NCCM here. The text of the message states: “The executive committee of the National Council of Catholic Men, calls upon all affiliates to be mindful of the admonition of the Holy Father to Catholic Ac tion organizations to carefully avoid involvement in political controversy and urged all its af filiates to call the attention of their members to the obligation to register and vote as they be lieve to be the best interest of their community and our nation.” The committee also drew up a tentative program, centered in the parish, for the NCCM na tional convention to be held in Cincinnati from May 10 to 12, 1957. ----------------o---------------------- High School Boys Need Preparation For Military Life BLOOMINGTON. Ill.—(NC) The need for a moral course to prepare junior and senior high school students for military serv ice was stressed at the annual High School Institute for the Dio cese of Peoria held here. Father John M. Whelan-, a former U.S. Army chaplain and now chaplain at the Illinois State Penitentiary at Pontiac, told nearly 250 secondary school teachers that this preparation would have to be unique. “The military life is unique. There is no other way to say it,” declared Father Whelan, who led a panel discussion at the one day meet. Topic of the discussion was “What Can the Catholic High School Do To Prepare Boys for Military Service?” On the panel with Father Whel an were Lt. Col. Richard T. Dunn, a regimental commander in the Illinois National Guard, and Lt. Col. Robert A. Strupp, perman ent Army instructor for the Illin ois National Guard. Concordat Impossible Between Reds, Vatican FRANKFURT, Germany (NC) A concordat be tween the Holy See and the Soviet Union is impossible so long as the U.S.S.R. remains under a communist regime, Father Gustav Gundlach, S. J., said at a congress of East European experts and expellees. Father Gundlach is on the faculty of th* Papal Gregorian University at Rome. He is an advisor to His Holiness Pope Pius XII, in the field of eco nomics and social relations. Local arrangements between individual dioceses and commun ist authorities need not be ruled out on general terms, Father Gundlach added, if they concern the needs of the Church. This, however, would not mean a weak ening of the Church’s stand against communism as such, he added. If the Holy Father recently mentioned the possibility of the Church's adjusting herself to any kind of civilization, not only the civilization of the West, Father Gundlach said, this does not justify the con- Talium Est Reanum Caelorum "The story of St. Vincent's is written in the heart of every child who needs spiritual or physical care," Bishop Ready said, at the cornerstone laying for the new St. Vin cent's orphanage. The Bishop praised the work of the Diocesan Welfare Bureau and "all who have contributed their time and money to make this day possible." The new buildings replace structures built in 1878 and are a result of a building fund campaign begun in 1953.

The cornerstone inscription "Talium Est Regnum Caelorum" means "Of such is the Kingdom of Heaven." elusion that th* Church could co-exist with communism, for "communism is not a civiliza tion." Father Gundlach concluded his speech by declaring that the Church must under all circum stances seek ways and means to secure a minimum of the neces sary requirements for the welfare of souls. She will, therefore, al ways seek a “modus vivendi” with hostile governments in order to care for those ih need of her teachings and Sacraments. But this will not mean a compromise with communism, he said.

Thome* J. Fitzgerald Th* euthor is executive secretary of th* National Organi zation for Decent Literature. His article describes the purj-ose* and function* of the NODL. As early as November of 1938 the Catholic Bishops be came aware of the danger certain magazines could have for children. These publications, exploit ing sex, perversion, horror and detailed crime, were appearing in numbers in neighborhood re- tail outlets where children could easily purchase them. To combat this evil influence, the Bishops established the Na tional Organization for Decent Literature. Its purpose is “to or ganize and set in motion the mor al' forces of the entire country against the lascivious type of literature which threatens mor al, social and national life.” When the comic book and pa perback industry began to pub lish certain objectionable titles, these publications were added to the scope of NODL. As a service organization, NODL acts as a clearing house for ink. nation on activities in the field of decent literature, prepares a list of publications judged objectionable for youth according to the NODL code and gathers data on new legislation against objectionable reading ma terial. Because the NODL is a service office, it offers help only when asked. To claim that NODL is cre ating an atmosphere of “book burning" and "witch-hunting" certainly is not borne out, as is shown by the concern re spected individuals and groups have voiced over the same problem.

He spoke during the In- nocent XI beatification rites. The present age like that of Blessed Innocent XI, the Pope said, “is marked by an urgent need for a spiritual rebirth, by the gravity and vital nature of its disputes, and by dangers which threaten all.” The Holy Father's discourse was given by radio from his summer residence at Castelgan dolfo during the morning beati fication ceremony In the Pooe's break with the ©Id tra dition of th* complete absence of the reigning Pontiff during a beatification, his voice re sounded through St. Peter's Ba silica while he extolled the new beatu» a* "a bright star which God has lighted in th* Church's firmament." crystal-sided casket containing the richly robed remains of Blessed Innocent, with a silver mask and silver hand coverings. Celebrant of the Mass was His Eminence Eugene Cardinal Tiss erant, dean of the Sacred College of Cardinals. While the Holy Father was not present at the morning cere mony as he is at canonization rites, he came to St. Peter’s by car in the evening for services which included veneration of the remains of Blessed Innocent. The formal elevation of Pope Innocent to the ranks of the Bfess ed in the morning was witnessed by a throng of some 30.000 persons. Included were an offic ial Austrian delegation headed by Education Minister Heinrich Drimme! and Archbishop Franz, Koenig of Vienna, and a group of Hungarian exiles. Both groups came to pay homage to the Pope who had played a leading rols in the liberation of their coun tries from the Turks. After all were seated, the cere mony began simply, with the reading of the Brief of Beatifica tion. When this was finished, Car dinal Tisserant intoned the Te Deum, which was taken up by the basilica choir and the attend ing clergy.
