Bishop vis ited on Monday, Clear Lake and Gary, of which places Father Barre is pus tor, and administered the Sacrament of Confirmation to one hundred and three children and adults. Aurora: For many years, Aurora mission attended by Rev. Wm. She of Brookings, had a small wood chapel on one of the side streets the outskirts of the town. Fath Shean thinks that Main street is proper place to do business, and cot not see why it was not also the rig place for the Catholic Church to located, where it can be seen by u and is easy of access. According he bought a lot on Main street a built a neat church costing abo $8,000. The church is of concrete blocks it has three marble altars and is tastefully decorated. The Catholi of Aurora are delighted and they take great interest in church affairs and the congregation is increasing. It is a striking argument against the polio cf placing the church on the outer edge of the town because some one Sives the land, wishing at the same time to be generous to the Lord and boost the price of his farm. On Tues day, June 11th, Rt. Rev. Bishop O'Gor man, accompanied by twelve of his priests, dedicated the new church, un der the name of St. William and con firmed eighty persons. Rt. Rev. Mgr. G.

He was born there in 1884, and baptized by Father O'Connell, who at tended Parker from Montrose. There were few Catholics at that time in the vicinity of Parker and they did not possess a church. Mass was said iD the school house. The church which gave way to the present one was built in 1887. Retreat: The diocesan retreat be gins Monday, June 24th, at Columbus College, Chamberlain.

DIOCESE OF SUPERIOR. Diocesan Correspondent. Rev. J. A. Pilon, 628 Bay St., Superior, Wis. Ladysmith: The cornerstone of the new church and school building at Ladysmith was laid with impres sive ceremonies last Sunday.

Superior: Graduation exercises have been held in the various paro chial schools of the city throughout the week. Thursday's night exercises marked the culmination of one of the most successful years in the history of the parochial school in the Cathe dral parish. This was followed on Friday night by the graduation exer cises at St Joseph's school, on Mon day at St. Stanislaus, Tuesday at St. Louis, and Thursday of the present week at the school of St. Francis Xavier in the East End. Nearly a hundred graduates have been turned out of the parochial schools in the city during the past year and the one regret expressed on all sides is that we cannot offer to this ever increasing army of parochial school graduates opportunities for higher education such as are afforded by the Catholic academies, high schools and convents of other cities.
