Citizen Photo by Bruce Hopkins. Banquet Set For Churches To Show Support Of New Ecumenical Council Formation of a Tucson Ecu- 1 inenical Council of Protestant and Catholic churches to replace the all-Protestant and Orthodox Tucson Council of Churches is moving along toward accomplishment, the Rev. Comer Alden, president of the Tucson Council, has announced. Â· The Tucson C o u n c i l of Churches held a special meeting in January at which proposals were made to dissolve the Tucson Council whose membership included o n l y P r o t e s t a n t churches and to create a new Protestant-Catholic council. 'Â· The assembly balked then at authorizing the dissolution of the . Tucson council, but endorsed the proposal for a Protestant-Catholic council. ' ] Since then a committee has been at work drafting a proposal for creation of the new council. Committee members included both Catholic' and Protestant laymen and clergymen. " The Most Rev. Francis J. Green, bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Tucson, endorsed the proposed Protestant - Catholic council. The Rev. Mr. Alden announced that a statement of pur-- pose was being mailed to congregations in the city, along with a statement of intention for each congregation to return to' the committee. The deadline for replies is March 28, when a banquet" will be held at St. Demetrious Greek Orthodox church. Invited to the banquet from each congregation are the pastors, iive leading lay people and, in addition, community leaders in general. The number of intentions to join the new organization received -by the time of the banquet will decide the likelihood of success of the new group being organized.

Dr. Cain is superintendent of Los Angeles district of the Methodist-Southern California - Arizona Conference. The Rev. Mr. Alden said that, iven if a large number of churches signify their intention of participating in the new citywide council, it may take until late fall to perfect the organization. The T u c s o n Council of Dhurches will have its annual meeting in May and then will !iave to vote in some way on the proposals. If the council votes to drop out of the picture, the charter member churches will have to draft a constitution and approve it, and launch a finance campaign to hire an executive secretary. Finances would be in two parts, the Rev. Mr. Alden said. Each member church would pay a fixed membership fee, now proposed at $50. In addition, each congregation would 'be asked for an assessment for the executive secretary and for overhead expenses. The earliest an executive secretary could be hired would be about next Jan. 1, the Rev. Mr. Alden said. One issue that has arisen is whether the Tucson Ecumenical Council, the suggested name, would be limited to. Christian churches. ' N llwrotiw 4Vf Â»ih \vr Â·! tflh SI The committee in its letter to i prospective member congregations said: "We, urge separate participation of all interested individuals and congregations hi an already exisiting group, known as the National Conference of Christians and Jews." Membership, otherwise, would be open to "any Christian church that is in basic agreement with the statement of purpose." The statement of purpose reads, in part: "We of the Tucson Ecumenical Council are a fellowship of churches who confess Jesus Christ as Lord. "With all lowliness and meekness, with patience, forebearing one another in love and eager to maintain the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace, we acknowledge our unity in the one body and under the one Spirit, believing in one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all who is above all and through all and in all.. "Conscious of 'our common obedience' to Christ, we also acknowledge that we are called in this unity to be his servants in the world. "In order to accomplish this high calling, we commit our common lives to struggle to discover new and creative dimensions of our common task. "To provide for. active involvement in this calling, three channels for our common life are established: education, worship and community service." CHURCHES OF CHRIST^ CATALINA 2525 N.

The council is designed for maximum flexibility to deal with the demands of issues as ;hey arise. "The structure should not im- )ede participating by groups with widely divergent v i e w points and historical, differences. The organizational and heological autonomy of each Jarticipating member will be Â·espected at all times. Parti- :ipation in specific projects will 3e on a voluntary basis. "There will be a high degree of permissiveness in the operation of programs, allowing member churches to: -- "Sponsor programs on their own, communicating these to the entire membership as part of ;the overall strategy of mission; -- "Participate in specific projects with one or more churches, according to their individual desires and financial capabilities. -- "And-or. contribute to a common 'budget for general projects that will be undertaken on a broad scale by the majority- . "While unity is an important goal, and common action is desirable, this goal does not pre elude the possibility of individual churches or groups of churches from acting independently in order to maintain in good conscience what is felt to be an important conviction or unique witness." Pope Paul In Surprise Selection Of Successor To Spellman VATICAN CITY (UPI) Pope Paul VI has named a surprise replacement for the late Francis Cardinal Spellman as Roman Catholic archbishop of New York. He is Terence James Cooke, a 47-year-old titular bishop who had been serving as one of Spellman's auxiliaries. Cooke is almost certain to be made a cardinal in the pontiff's next consistory, which some Vatican sources say may come as early as this spring. The appointment yesterday of Cooke, a native New Yorker, came as a surprise to many Vatican experts. They had believed a more experienced man, such as Pittsburgh's Bishop John go- seph Wright or Detroit Archbishop John Francis Dearden, probably were in line for the job. Instead, Pope Paul -- apparently in line with his desires to jet a "younger" hierarchy into key Roman Catholic Church posts -- picked Cooke, who became a bishop less than three years ago. He was ordained a; priest on Dec. 1, 1945. On Sept, 15, 1965, Pope Pau named him titular bishop of Summa -- a non-existent pos that carries only the honorary title of bishop -- and at th same time an auxiliary am vicar general to Spellmen. Spellmen died Dec. 2, 1967.

"The time is now ripe to stop deceiving ourselves with ridiculous false illusions," the A m e r i c a n archbishop said. "Our life on this earth, no matter how long it is preserved, will one day inevitably come to an end. "Life in eternity belongs only to those persons who have preserved the commandments of God," the archbishop said, "have adhered to the provisions and admonitions of the church, and who have struggled on earth to conquer Heaven." Archbishop lakovos in his annual message in the 48-day period leading'up to the Eastern Orthodox Easter April 21, said he found much in the world today to frighten him -- Vietnam, the Middle East conflicts and disorders in other countries of Africa and Asia.

Otherwise, as in other Christian churches, Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox. ARCHBISHOP IAKOVOS "We are melancholic and truly concerned over the home front," the archbishop told his Greek congregations in the United States. He said that "violence, narcotics, crime, greediness and abuse of freedom have begun the deterioration of our social structure and even endanger our personal security." The Lenten season for the Greek churches and other Eastern Orthodox began on Monday, later than the western churches' Ash Wednesday. The Greek Easter also will be a week later than the more widely observed Easter of western Christian churches on April 14.
