Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE October 20.1973 x-Thc Religion French Catholics trying worship without a priest From LEO RYAN In the immediate post-war period progressive Fiench clergvmen launched a revolu- tion in the Roman Catholic Church introducing worker-priests Today some three decades later another revolutionary experiment is being carried out in certain Catholic dioceses of France Religious ceremonies without the par- ticipation of a priest The vocational crisis in the clergy has provided the prime motivating force behind the bold venture that so far, has limited itself to a dozen or so parishes The bishops who have allow- ed such experiments to started a year taken a big gamble m a countrv especially in the rural areas still heavily dominated by conservative thinking But they obviously feel the risk is worth taking in the context of the uncertain future for the traditional parish structure These priest-less assem- blies replacing the normal Sunday mass with a layman presiding are defined by the sponsors as "the celebration of the message (celebration de la parole) MAL-A-THOT 327-4581 A priest at the national cen- tre of pastroal liturgy explain- ed in an interview that the French church had been in- spired by the recent practices of the Catholic church in South America Brazil in particular where there are few priests and the faithful have to organize themselves We do not want to give the impression of Christians feel- ing different' he said adding that "in a way it's like a return to the early Roman church when there were not enough priests In some instances it is the death of the parish priest, the cure which provides the op- portunity for launching an ex- periment The bishop decides not to replace him in other cases as in a parish of a northern Pans suburb Sickness of the cure can lead to the holding of occasional Sunday ceremonies without a priest Meeting Four visitors bearing the tradition of another era, plain-garbed Amish from Indiana, exchange curious greetings with a long-haired surfer on a cloudy day at the beach near San Diego, Calif Soul-cleaner earns less than trash man LINDSAY, Ont (CP) Ministers of the United Church of Canada should be paid enough to enable them to live with a little dignity and not have to scrape for everything they buv a former United Church minister said recently George Bradbury now a BETHANY BAPTIST CHURCH (North American Baptist General Conference) 329 19th Street North H Poshwatta Phone 327-0670 9 45 a m and English classes) 11 00 a m Worship Service 7 00 p m Service We Preach Chnst the Power and Wisdom of God NORBRIDGE COMMUNITY CHURCH The Evangelical Church in Canada 1402 8 Ave N. 10 00 a m Sunday School 11 00 a m Morning Worship 7 00 p m Evening Service EVERYONE CORDIALLY WELCOME Independent Baptist Church Interested In Pure Bible Study'' In What Christ Has For You?

Pacific Mormons By WALLACE TURNER New York Times Service LAIE, Hawaii Over the last 10 years the Mormon Church has constructed an ex- tremely successful commer- cial enterprise based on the presence of Polynesian students at a Mormon college here Called the Polynesian Cultural Centre the experi- ment has become a multimillion dollar revenue producer for the college and a tourist attraction that draws about 600 000 visitors a year Superstar reaction was quiet Barely a flicker of Christian penetrated the darkness inside Lethbndge movie theatres recently, despite exhibition of two controversial films about the life of Jesus "Jesus Christ Superstar is a musical not a theological treatise says Rev Albert Baldeo Lethbndge Ministerial Association pres'dent 'I saw and appreciated the film as a musical I don't ex- pect it to do what the church should be doing Theatre manager Bob Shackleford reports high school classes from Catholic schools requested several special screenings of Super- star and Godspell a musical based on the Gospel of Matthew Larry Spicer Christian education director at the Lethbndge Church of the Nazarene dubbed Superstar as "sacrilegious I ve heard the music and enjoy it less and less every time Mr Spicer said in an interview "I don't encourage young people to go and see it In some North America centres the films have been picketed by persons disputing the celluloid interpretation of Jesus's life Mr Shackleford said there were no incidents here during screenings other than a few people who walked out disappointed The theatre manager noted Superstar attracted an unusually large audience to its Sunday evening performance Bill Calderwood, associate minister at Soulhmmster United Church said he appreciated the observations of a youth group from his congregation who saw Super- star "The kids noticed the film seemed to be more concerned with Judas and other people around Mr Calderwood said The minister feels there was value in this assessment if it means people seriously start to ask themselves more about who Jesus was and how his life affects them as an individual For the admission price of 50 the tourists may walk through a string of huts where they receive short lectures on the culture of Polynesian peo- ple from Tahiti, Fiji Tonga, Samoa the Maori of New Zealand and the old Hawanans Admission includes a cafeteria style dinner in- cluding some Polynesian dis- hes and then a night show if Polynesian songs and dances The silken night air of the tropics throbs with the quick pulse of the Tahitian hula drums or the muffled hoarse threats ot the Maori war chants After two hours in the covered stands the program is over and the tourists move back to the buses for a 40 mile ride back to Honolulu But there is a lot more to it than all this The Sandwich Island Mis- sion of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints first arrived in Honolulu in 1850 After some initial failures the Mormons former California gold miners concentrated on the Polynesians The islanders joined the church by the thousands, and succeeding Mormon mis- sionaries have had out- standing success in the islands that dot the far corners of the Pacific The result has been the gradual creation of a major church installation on a tract the early missionaries ac- quired here in 1865 There are just 16 Mormon temples around the world for the three million church members, and one of them is here Also, the Mormons operate a small liberal arts college Church College of Hawaii near the temple It attracts young Mormons from across the Pacific who bring with them the culture of their home island The church has found a way to sell that In 1963 it was decided by church leaders that a substan- tial stream from the growing flood of tourists to Hawaii now more than two million a year could be diverted to a properly run Polynesian show and village that would be staffed with students and their families from the Church College "The Church had the problem of helping these students from out of the way places to finance their college educations said Stephen Bennett a onetime Hollywood advertising agency operator who now is director of sales and marketing for the centre "The Church subsidized their passage here because how can a student who has a year cash income on his island back home expect to pay air fare of hundreds of dollars'7 Bennett said Their pay for working in the village or performing in the show goes to pay off this debt A student comes to Honolulu from a village in say FIJI and 24 hours after he arrives, he has a job Bennett said Only Western Samoans and Hawaiian students have free immigration privileges Those from Fiji Tonga Tahiti and New Zealand must obtain stu dent visas Those with visas who intend to emigrate must return home and re-enter the United States as immigrants Exempted pension sought by sects OTTAWA bill that would exempt certain religious sects from par- ticipating in the Canada Pen- sion Plan was endorsed un- animously by the Commons health and welfare committee this week and sent back to the commons for final con- sideration More than 5 00 Older Order and Amish Mennonites in On- tario would qualify, as well as an unknown number of Huttentes A delegation from Ontario's Mennonite Central Committee told the committee its objec- tions were not financial but a "serious matter of con- science Members of the. sect refuse to accept old age pen- sions or family allowances because they consider both programs insurance schemes By declining to apply for family allowances and old age pensions they saved the tax- payers annually and this represents "four to five times the amount" they would contribute to the Canada Pen- sion Plan In support of the bill delegation head Douglas Snyder said the sect practised what it preached He said the objections were 'trully religious matters of con- science "We have offered repeated- ly to pay the equivalent of the welfare premiums into a worthy welfare or charitable fund, that this money might be used to help in areas of he said Under questioning by Eymard Corbin (L Madawaska-Victona) Mr Snyder said the sect pays provincial school

Catholic church here has started accepting credit cards in lieu of cash dona- tions The Coronation of the Bless- ed Virgin Mary Church launched the plan Sunday as a means of boosting its income Paul Totaro a member of the church's finance com- mittee said credit cards aid parishioners in budgeting fix- ed amounts for church con- tributions A church can't survive on 50-cent donations and that's often all that s left in people's pockets on a Sunday atter a week of paying bills he said With credit cards, many church members have begun making gifts of to To- taro said Rev Eugene Raydan, pas- tor said the credit cards help people include the church in their general array of finan- cial responsibilities He said that in this way, people come to think of the church as a regular obliga- tion
