Wedding Anniversary Mass

Bishop urges couples to pray aloud together


By DAVID MYERS
Southwest Kansas Register

(PHOTOS) Bishop John B. Brungardt urged couples who were gathered at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Dodge City Oct. 20 to “pray together daily, pouring out your thoughts and feelings to the Lord”.  
Dozens of couples from across southwest Kansas converged on the cathedral on the plains for the annual Wedding Anniversary Mass, which was followed by a dinner reception.
“We thank you, God,” the bishop said, “for your presence in these marriages. Please help them to grow ever closer to you and to each other throughout this life so they may rejoice in your love eternally.”
The couples grasped hands and renewed their love and commitment to each other: “Today, I renew my commitment to you,” they said to one another. “I promise to love you and honor you all the days of my life.”

Liberal resident brings Sunday Gospel, homily, to shut-ins

By DAVID MYERS
Southwest Kansas Register

LIBERAL -- For Don Smith, helping the shut-ins of St. Anthony Parish begins with the press of a little red button.
The button is attached to a $65 digital audio recorder that Smith sets atop the pulpit prior to each Sunday’s Mass. It’s there that Father James Dieker, one of the deacons, or a visiting priest presses the little red “record” button before the Gospel reading.
That’s when Smith goes to work.
Using an audio editing program on his computer, the retired electronics technician edits the Gospel reading and homily into one fluid format, and then uploads the audio file onto the parish website and Facebook page. The file can then be accessed by anyone with an internet connection. In the case of elderly shut-ins, it may mean having a visiting friend or family member present the recording via their Smart Phone, I-Pad, Kindle, or a host of other devices.

Coalition for Justice for Immigrants

Ridding the world of ignorance, one story at a time

By DAVID MYERS
Southwest Kansas Register

Elva Dominguez had had enough.
She was in high school at the time, and was fed up with being pulled out of class to help new students who could only speak Spanish. The particular student she was asked to help this time needed to know where her locker was located; where her classes were.
“I was sick of it!” Dominguez told a crowd gathered at the Dodge City Public Library Oct. 8 to discuss immigration issues. “I told her, ‘I’m not going to answer any more of your questions.’ I told her she had to learn English.”
The girl never spoke to Dominguez again, well, not for some time, anyway.
“A few years later I had to go into a bank and ask for a loan. Guess who the loan officer was? She said, ‘Do you remember me?’ I said, ‘Yes, I do.’ She said, ‘You made me so angry -- so angry that I went and learned English.’
“I guess she wasn’t too angry with me; I got my loan!”
