Fr. McElwee starts low-power FM station

Retired priest of the diocese plans to evangelize, catechize SEK
Father Bob McElwee is embracing the exhortation by recent popes to use electronic means to evangelize the Catholic faith.
Father McElwee, who retired from active ministry in the Diocese of Wichita in 2010, isn’t blogging, he isn’t Tweeting – he’s starting a radio station.
The process began 14 months ago, when he began investigating starting a low-power FM radio station for the Pittsburg-Frontenac area. To do so, Father McElwee created a non-profit corporation and applied to the FCC for a license, which he received in January.
The call letters of the station, KOOJ, have Marian roots. The Blessed Mother has many titles, one of which is “Cause of our joy.” Because the call letters of all radio stations west of the Mississippi River must begin with the letter K, Fr. McElwee got as close as he legally could. KOOJ is scheduled to begin broadcasting today, the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, at a frequency of 93.1.
“A friend of mine who runs radio stations helped me a lot,” the retired priest said in a telephone interview last week.
In addition to the equipment needed, Father McElwee also has an agreement with the EWTN Global Catholic Network for content.
“My plan would be to initially use exclusively EWTN content,” he said, “but then move to have more local programming as time goes on and as talent and availability permit.”
Fr. McElwee hopes local parishes will use the radio station for their benefit, to announce parish activities and events, and perhaps to broadcast Mass to those unable to attend.
“The bishop has given me tentative approval that he would give me some kind of monthly statement, program, homily, or spiritual address,” he said, “something that I could use to connect Southeast Kansas, the Pittsburgh-Frontenac area, with Wichita – which desperately needs to be done.”
After the radio station is established, Fr. McElwee would like to work with the Spiritual Life Center in Wichita to broadcast presentations made at the retreat center in Wichita for the benefit of those unable to attend the presentations in Wichita. He would also make the station available to the Newman Center at Pittsburg State University, especially to students interested in communications.
KOOJ’s signal will be strong enough for the Pittsburg-Frontenac area, he said, and may reach Girard, about 10 miles by air.
“My intention is to help parishes in their work,” he said.

Scott and Kimberly Hahn to speak Sept. 6 at Magdalen to benefit the Midwest Catholic Family Conference

Scott and Kimberly Hahn, two of the most sought-after Catholic speakers in the United States, will be at Church of the Magdalen Saturday, Sept. 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. for educational and informational talks.
Topics for the Hahns’ presentations are currently being developed and will be publicized at a later date. 
Proceeds from the Hahn’s presentation will benefit the Midwest Catholic Family Conference. As a self-supported conference, proceeds will help the annual event, now in its 14th year, continue, said its director Kevin Regan.
Regan said evaluations after the conference typically list the Hahns as speakers attendees would still like to see speak at the conference. Prior commitments have kept the Hahns away from presenting at the Midwest Catholic Family Conference, held on the first weekend in August, however, the opportunity arose to bring them to Wichita in September.
According to his website, Dr. Scott has 10 years of youth and pastoral ministry experience in Protestant congregations and is a former professor of theology at Chesapeake Theological Seminary. He was ordained in 1982 at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Fairfax, Va. He entered the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil in 1986. Dr. Scott and Kimberly have been married since 1979. They have six children and are expecting their fifth grandchild.
The cost for the day will be $25 a person, or $40 a couple, and includes four talks, as well as a light lunch. Merchandise will be available for purchase and there will be an opportunity for a book signing at the conclusion of the day.

Want to hear Scott and Kimberly Hahn?
For more information or to register for the event, call (316) 618-9787, email midwconf@cox.net, or visit www.catholicfamilyconference.org. Registration may also be mailed to P.O. Box 21301, Wichita, KS 67208. Church of the Magdalen is located at 12626 E. 21st St. North in Wichita.

Sr. Eloise Hertel celebrates golden jubilee

Dominican Sister of Peace Eloise Hertel is celebrating her 50th jubilee this year. Forty-six of those years have been spent in the ministry of education. “I get great satisfaction from working with teachers, parents and students,” she said.
Sr. Eloise served as a teacher and principal in several different schools in the Diocese of Wichita: Christ the King School, All Saints School, School of the Magdalen, St. Patrick and St. Jude in Wichita; St. Peter in Schulte; and St. Cecilia in Haysville. Sr. Eloise also taught at Assumption School in Pueblo, Colo., and St. Stephen School in Lawrence, Neb.
“Recently I have begun volunteering at Harbor House, a home for abused women and this opportunity has opened my eyes in a new way to the needs of those less fortunate. I also live in a house of hospitality in Wichita and I enjoy being present to those who come for a little or a lengthy stay – welcoming them for a meal, overnight accommodations or a ride to the airport.”
She was born the oldest of nine children to Ruth and “Tuff” Hertel in western Kansas and cherishes her upbringing as a farm girl.
From 2002 to 2006, Sr. Eloise was a part of the Leadership Team of the Great Bend Dominicans, an experience that gave her an appreciation for Dominicans around the nation and the world. In 2004 Sr. Eloise attended the Lands of Dominic tour. “This trip changed me profoundly. It gave me a much deeper appreciation for being a Dominican Sister,” she said.
Sr. Eloise has a bachelor of arts degree in elementary education from Newman University in Wichita, and a master’s degree in elementary education administration from Ft. Hays State University.

Catholic Charities news, August 15, 2014

Pregnancy Counseling Services expanded at Catholic Charities
Catholic Charities is expanding its support to pregnant women by offering comprehensive case management services at the community level.
Cheryl Scott, a registered nurse, is the pregnancy and parent support specialist for the program. She has been a nurse for 35 years and has extensive experience in maternal-child health, high risk and normal pregnancy, labor and delivery, diabetes management, case coordination, and education. She works as a mentor and coach, assisting women with decisions and action steps to promote healthy mothers and babies. She also works to build community collaborations.
Referrals are accepted from an organization, agency or individual. The only requirement is that a woman is pregnant at the time of her first appointment.
Call (316) 263-6941 or 1-866-839-4327 for more information or to make a referral.
This expansion of pregnancy counseling services is made possible through the Kansas Pregnancy Maintenance Initiative grant, and services are provided at no cost to the client. The expansion will allow Catholic Charities to serve in locations more accessible to women and offer more direct support to clients during pregnancy and through six months following birth.
Catholic Charities works to help pregnant women through education in prenatal and maternal health and safety, infant attachment, child development and care-taking, job-seeking or educational assistance, referral for social service or state assistance, acquisition of supplies for infant care and safety in the home, resolving transportation issues and other practical problem solving.
Catholic Charities also works to develop a trusting, supportive relationship and encourages ongoing contact, and strives to help women form supportive relationships within their communities. Services may be provided one-to-one or in small groups. Women can choose how many or how few services they receive, based on their individual need.

Charities’ food pantry hosting educational grocery store tours
Each Tuesday in August, Our Daily Bread Food Pantry at Catholic Charities is taking clients on a learning expedition to the grocery store to educate families about healthy eating on a budget.
The curriculum, called Cooking Matters at the Store, is an interactive experience that allows participants to share knowledge with each other while being guided by a facilitator through four different topics of learning: reading food labels, comparing unit prices, finding whole grains, and identifying the best way to purchase produce on a budget. In addition, participants receive a $10 gift card at the end of the tour so they can put their newly-acquired skills to use.
“We all know how important eating healthy is,” said Scott Carter, pantry director. “When it comes to providing wholesome food to families in crisis, we usually only hear about how expensive these foods are. However, with some prudent shopping knowledge, I think most people would be surprised at how affordable produce and healthy foods can be.”
For more information or to register, call Scott at (316) 264-8344 ext. 1504 or email scarter@CatholicCharitiesWichita.org.
The food pantry is partnering with Dillons, Catholic Charities USA, and Share Our Strength, an organization that works to end childhood hunger, to host the grocery store tours.

RCIA training Sept. 26-27 at the Spiritual Life Center
By Father Ken Van Haverbeke

I looked at her and said, “So what’s the difference?” I should have put a seat belt on, because boy did she tell me the difference!
We were discussing the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, RCIA for short. (Ever notice how many acronyms there are in the church?) The RCIA is a manner in which people become Catholic. We were discussing whether RCIA was a “program” or a “process.” To me they were the same. Dumb me!
“A program,” the woman teaching me explained, “has a beginning and an end. Lent could be considered a program.” She went on to explain how a process has a beginning but no end. “It’s all about conversion!” she said, “And conversion often has a vague beginning and definitely no end, until we see God face to face! It’s a process!”
On Friday and Saturday, Sept. 26-27, the dioceses of Wichita, Salina, and Dodge City are presenting how the RCIA process can be enhanced and make a difference in a parish. This two-day event at the Spiritual Life Center will have some very pastoral and experienced presenters. Nothing worse than going to a conference, taught by people who don’t have parish experience. These presenters do!
All are invited: parishioners, pastors, catechists, parish music ministers, RCIA team members, sponsors, godparents, DRE’s (another acronym!), pastoral council members…everyone. Our English presenters are Nick Wagner and Diana Macalintal from TeamRCIA. Both Nick and Diana have more than 25 years of experience helping parishes master the fundamentals of the catechumenate process and build teams that form passionate disciples of Jesus Christ.
Our Spanish presenters will be Nelson Bonet and Rudy López. Both Nelson and Rudy have deep experience in parish formation work and have been popular, in-demand workshop presenters across the United States.
Want to attend the weekend?
The costs for the RCIA training weekend are $75 for single occupancy; $68 for double occupancy; and $30 for a commuter. As with all lay leadership events at the Spiritual Life Center in Wichita, no parish will ever be turned down due to lack of funds. Register at www.SLCWichita.org.

Divine Mercy retreat Aug. 22
WICHITA – The Spiritual Life Center will host a summer weekend retreat Aug. 22-24 about the message of Divine Mercy. Father Chris M. Alar will lead the retreat. He is a Marian of the Immaculate Conception priest, a religious community entrusted with spreading the message and devotion of Divine Mercy.
The retreat will cover the message and devotion of Divine Mercy; hints on how to pray better; the importance of the sacraments and the Mass in the Divine Mercy message; how suffering enters into the message; and finally – what we all want to understand – what we need to do to receive the gift of eternal life.
While these subjects will be presented and discussed, the purpose of the retreat is not adult education, but rather to carve out time to be with the Lord Jesus and to experience his healing and mercy. The weekend retreat includes Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, confession, and quiet time.
The summer retreat is a great way to gear up for the school year and autumn. As Sister Faustina wrote in her diary, “The two rays denote Blood and Water. The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the very depths of My tender mercy when My agonized Heart was opened by a lance on the cross. …Happy is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him.”
Want to attend?
To register for the Divine Mercy retreat Aug. 22-24, visit www.slcwichita.org or call the center at (316) 744-0167.

DVD series on divorce ‘survival’ begins on Sept. 3 at the SLC
Imagine being so depressed that you miss work and don’t get out of bed for three days, don’t answer the phone, and ignore your family and friends. You barely eat, don’t shower or brush your teeth, and your house begins to smell like greasy hair, sweaty sheets, and piled up garbage. It’s not a pretty picture.
But that’s exactly what happened to author Rose Sweet after her divorce. “I’m normally an upbeat person, but divorce devastated me. I lost myself. I lost my will to live. I wallowed in my misery like a big, fat pig in a deep, muddy pit.”
Today, Rose shares her story of God’s faithfulness, His forgiveness, and her recovering from divorce at retreats and conferences around the country. “I’ve been there. I know the shame and the pain. But I also know how rich God’s mercy is and that’s the good news I want to share with divorced Catholics.”
A 12-week Catholic’s Divorce Survival DVD Series at the Spiritual Life Center this fall from 7 to 8:30 p.m. beginning Wednesday, Sept. 3.
The cost is $60 but no one will be turned way. Scholarships are available. Call the Spiritual Life Center at (316) 744-0167 to register.

Six-week course on ‘The Great Heresies’ begins Aug. 19 at the Spiritual Life Center
Dusty Gates will present a series entitled “The Great Heresies” beginning Aug. 19 at the Spiritual Life Center in Wichita. The six-week program is titled and based, in part, on the book by English Catholic historian Hilaire Belloc.
In the six-session course, participants will study some of the major heresies that have been significant influences in the history in the church and the world. A heresy is a persistent teaching which is contrary to the established tradition of the Magisterium.
Heresies have had devastating effects on the church throughout the course of time, yet the church has always prevailed in its authenticity. Each heresy has, in the long run, strengthened the church by giving the Magisterium an opportunity to intervene with orthodox counter-teaching.
Belloc writes: “The denial of a scheme wholesale is not heresy, and has not the creative power of a heresy. It is of the essence of heresy that it leaves standing a great part of the structure it attacks. On this account it can appeal to believers and continues to affect their lives through deflecting them from their original characters.”
Studying the origins, faults, and lasting legacies of the major heresies in church history helps the church to reevaluate our own orthodoxy, serves as a warning and a guide for evaluating new theological trends, and helps the faithful find new ways to evangelize separated brethren and those who may have never heard the resounding truths of our mother the church.
Want to learn about heresies?
The class about heresies will be presented on six consecutive Tuesdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. beginning Aug. 19. The registration fee is $30. To register, visit www.SLCWichita.org or call (316) 744-0167.

After the Gift retreat Sept. 12-14 designed to help birth mothers help each other
By Bonnie Toombs

Birth mothers experience a huge gamut of emotions that include joy and sadness, certainty and doubt.
Being a birth mother is not something one becomes because one gives birth, one woman said, in addition to a title, being a birth mother is a badge of honor she proudly wears.
“When I first found out that I was pregnant,” she said, “I beat myself up because I thought ‘how could I let this happen?’ and ‘why me?’ But I soon realized that my pregnancy was more a blessing than a curse.”
Sometimes the most difficult decisions of our lives are the most blessed. For a single or vulnerable woman to lovingly place her newborn child, through adoption, with a married couple longing to be an expanded family is an act of deep faith and selfless love.
Birth mothers are invited to retreat next month at the Spiritual Life Center to come together in a spirit of prayer and support, seeking God’s continued grace on them and the children to whom they have gifted with life.
If you are a birth mother who has experienced adoption – open, closed, a recent placement, a placement many years ago – we hope you will consider joining this retreat. Women of all faiths are invited to attend.
Want to participate in the weekend?
The After the Gift retreat allows birth mothers to gather and receive support from one another to draw closer to God and to be recognized as givers of life. The weekend is Sept. 12-14 at the Spiritual Life Center, Wichita. The cost is $100 per person. Scholarships are available, if needed.
To register, visit www.RespectLifeSocialJustice.org to download the registration form.
