Church in Cuba holding its own By GEORGE W. CORNELL NEW YORK (AP) Church life seems to be holding its own in Cuba, and even gaining ground in some cases, although under heavy restrictions of Fidel Castro's Marxist-Socialist government. Tliis is the general picture that emerges from recent re- ports of churchmen from that island nation or visitors to it. "Either there is an increased freedom, or the church is just now becoming uninhibited enough to discover the freedoms that it has had." says Aiyce Hill, a United Methodist mis- sions official, after a 17-day Cuban visit. From tovai (o tuun. she said, "church meetings were held without any difficulty from local authorities." although she heard accounts of some instances of individual harassment and at- tacks on pastors in small vil- lages. In a similar vein, two Chilean Roman Catholic bishops, who njadc a fact-finding four of Cuba, report that the church theie is "the only institution of (be past that lias survived the revolution." They say that despite the rigid limitations imposed on if, and the distrust between the Castro regime and Christians, "the parish communities are stronger now, with more lay participation." Auxiliary Bishop Bernando Ariztia of San- tiago adds (hat (lie Christian message is restricted lo Ihe churches, and can't be preached outside I hem in public places.

It added in a resolution at its convention here in June that Cardinal Jolm A. Carbcrry, Anchbishop of St. Louis, "continues to impede" Ihe group's effort for needed "relevance and innovation in to- day's priesthood." Cardinal Carberry, who Uirned down a request of the new priests lo celebrate Mass at a St. Louis church June 13, says he did so because of "unan- swered questions" about their preparatory studies and ordina- 1100' However, he says he does not question Ihe validity of the ordi- nation though il was arranged in a manoeuvre to cir- cumvent his disapproval. It took place last Hay 11, n-hen five young members of the group were orda'ned in a ceremony in Cromwell, Conn., bv African Bishop Peter K. Sar- pong of Kumasi diocese in Ghana, who then released them to work in St. Louis. "I never dreamed they would do something like Cardi- nal Cai-berry said afterward in an interview in Uie St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Members of the community claimed he had for three years blocked their ordination in var- ious dioceses. He says he had written some letters raising questions about the group. Under the circumstances, the ordination ceremony was kept secret until afterward, except from a'.fending relatives and close friends. However, the of- i ficc of Bishop Vincent J. Hines j ot Norwich, in whose diocese it occurred, had been notified. BEREAN CHRISTADELPHIANS 633 7lh St. Soulh of Bread School JEWS AND THEIR ADVANTAGE" Win.
