M, 1992 Church of Christ Forced to Secret Meeting in Rome ROME I* — Members of the I Protestant Church of Christ held secret services here in Catholic ^Rome yesterday after police blockaded their regular meeting place and ordered worshippers away. Cllne B. Paden of Brownfield, Tex., who heads the small Protestant group here, said the sect held its services at a member's home. He refused to reveal the member's name-or address, saying "it might hurt him." An informed Italian source said v the crackdown was due to the . group's evangelical activities — about 1,000 conversions since ft'orld War II _ in Catholic Italy, Paden protested to Ihe Interior Ministry that the interference with the service violated guarantees in I the Italian Constitution of religious I liberty, freedom of assembly and I freedom of thought. A ministry of• "-'-• replied that the Church of ' Christ die! .. permission n phanage In Italy, is supported largely by contributions from Texas. Paden announced Saturday that his group's church at Alessandria was shuttered last Sunday, the Rome church had been ordered closed and the same action against the group's other churches had been threatened. The church's orphanage at Frascati was closed In 1849 during earlier agitation against its activities but was allowed lo reopen after Texas members of the U. s. Congress protested to the State Department. Defying Ihe closure order here, Paden opened the doors two hours earlier than usual yesterday morning in the stone villa he uses for a church, within sight of Vatican City and Roman Catholicism's first church, St. Peter's Cathedral.
