A new Dialogue Mass has been designed to accomplish this effect. The Mass is held in the school gymnasium every Sunday morning where chairs arc arranged semicircular and participants discuss the relevance of the day's Epistle or Gospel to the social ills in today's society. The Rev. Robert F. Sherry, associate pastor of the church, xplains the dialogue Mass was freeport (III.) Journal-Standard Pg. 20 Mon., July 1, 1968 recommended by the country's bishops nearly l'/i years ago. The local church began this phase six weeks ago. Father Sherry cites one discussion held recently where the dissatisfaction with Christ for associating with the deprived led dialogue participants to discuss various ways and means to secure state funds for low- cost housing for the underprivileged and poor. Suggestios included attending a City Council meeting or writing to a city alderman. The associate pastor said this "is not violence or protest ... but to show Christian concern for the poor in town . . .to take an interest in what is going on today." Pope Paul V! Appeals To Believers VATICAN CITY (AP) - Pope Paul VI, expressing disquiet over the "passion for change and novelty" in the Roman Catholic Church, has appealed to believers to abide by church dogma on issues ranging from papal infallibility to original sin. In his most comprehensive pronouncement on faith, delivered before a large throng in St. Peter's Square Sunday, the pontiff noted unrest in "certain modern quarters" of the church. To the priests of the world, many of whom "feel that they have been thrust aside by modern social developments," he reaffirmed the importance of clerical celibacy and the priests' role among young peo- ple and workers. The Pope delivered a 3,000- word "Credo of the People of God" and a separate 1,500-word message for priests on the fifth anniversary of his coronation and at the closing ceremony of the Year of Faith. It was greeted by thunderous applause. "We have wished our profession of faith to be to a high degree complete and explicit, m order that it may respond in a fitting way to the need of light felt by so many faithful souls," the Pope said. He reaffirmed faith in the concept of original sin as common in all men, the virginity of Mary and her role in the Church's moral life, Jesus Christ as the son of God, the mystery of the Trinity and the oneness of God. The pontiff cited the importance of baptism, the Roman Catholic Church as the only true church, the need for a church hierarchy, infallibility of the Pope and of bishops as a body under the pontiff, the Mass as a real re-enactment of Christ's death, the Eucharist as the true body and blood of Jesus and the existence of Paradise, Purgatory and Hell.
