the whole American Church.
Whilo the struggle of the Hispano continues to be arduous and constant, sone
significant acconplishnents have taken place since June, L972. This success
cannot be attributed to a:ry one person or event. It is the story of Spanish
speaking American Catholics convinced of the unity of the Anerican Church and
of tho values of our heritage and irnpelled by this spirit to share responsibil
ity for the growth of the kíngdon among our peoples and all pcoples of our
cglmtry.

Dear Father Kinney:
Please excuse the delay in responding to your letter of ,Iune fourth
givíng approval to the appoíntments of our priests in your Archdiocese. I Ì,ras attending a conference out

ïIol-ski
lfith regard to the question of Fa
repo rt the followíng:
Church and St. Joseph Church, Del ano
In a telephone conversation with Bishop Roach toward the end of April
we talked about t-he presentation of Father Wol-ski as Pastor of St.
,Josephls Church, Delano, pending the return of one of your priests
from South America to assume the pastorate of Our Lady of Guadal-upe.
Upon conferring with my Council- I find the sentiment to be that'If
at all possible, that-ió, as long as there is no disturbance to the
Archdíocese, to retain the pastorate of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
The feeLing being that Father Vtolski, though not a very progressive
Pastor, nonetheless, has done a great deaL physically and financíaIl-y
for that Church.
In short, we are asking if Father WolskÍ can stay on a while longer
tí1 perhaps one of þur own Missionaries returns from Paraguay to repl-ace him? If there is strong reason to advise otherwise we will
ãertainly oblige the Archdiocese' decision.
This vzould in no way interfere with our acceptance as a Province the
parish of St. Joseph, Delano, which we have already signed contract
for. f woul-d þçesent the name of Father Alphonsus Domr.rick to the
Archbishop for that pastorate.
I understand there is a sma1l parish on the fringes of St.,Joseph's,
St,. Mary Czestochowa. We would be most willing to accept this responsability al-ong with St..loseph's sínce both of these rather small
communities together would offer more of a chal1-enge to a relatively
active príest.'
Awaiting your final word on this matter, I

The transfer of Fr. Wolski to St. Josephrs Church in Delano
has been approved by Very Reverend Emile Gentile, TOR, Minister
ProvÍncial, for September 1. The Archbishop has also approved
the appointment of Fr. Baymond Monsour as Pastor of Our Lady
of Guâdalupe effective September 1. There is going to be
something of a time problem and we may have to supply for that
first weekend as I now discover that Ray wants to stay at
the Venezuelan mission until after the Feast Day, September 8.
I will inform you further about Rayrs plans after I have heard
from him again. At any rate, the l-etters, announcements, etc.
should be prepared for the other two.

the Symbol of Faith, that ls:
I believe in one God, the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth, and of
aII thÍngs visible and ÍnvÍsible.
I belleve in one Lord, ]esus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. Born
of the Father before aII ages. God of God, Llght of Light, true God of true
God. Begotten, not made, of one substance with the Father, by whom all
And
things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from
heaven. And he became flesh by the HoIy Spirlt of the Virgtn Mary: and was
made man. He was also crucified for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and
was buried. And on the third day he rose again, according to the Scrlptures.
He ascended lnto heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father. He wlll come
again in glory to judge the living and the dead. And of hÍs kingdom there wfll
be no end.
And I belleve in the Holy SpirÍt, the Lord and Glver of lffe, who proceeds from
the Father and the Son. Who together with the Father and the Son is adored
and glorifÍed, and who spoke through the prophets.
