I This year's retreat will be the first ]one conducted at Washington. For the ]past three years, through the courtesy of Very Rev.. John M. Salter, S. J., provincial of the Jesuits Fathers, and Father Ruhlman S. J., superior of Berchmans Hall, at Het Springs, N. C., the retreas were held there, but Berchmans Hall has been closed and the Jesuits have moved to a residence on the property. The retreatants were then invited to hold their retreat at St. Joseph's Home in Washington, of which Rev. Thos. L. Finn is chaplain and which is conducted by the Sisters of St. Joseph.

Located in Washington and Wilkes County, "The Cradle of Catholicity in Georgia", it has the ad- vantages of location in one of the larger communities of the state and Anniversary as Bishop RT. REV. MICHAEL J. KEYES, D.D., BISHOP OF SAVANNAH SAVANNAH, Ga.--Rt. Rev. Michael J. Keyes, D.D., Bishop of Savannah, started the tw.aty-fifth year of his life as a priest June 21, the anni- versary being marked by a dinner tendered him by the clergy of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. Bishop Keyes was ordained 24 years ago, on June 11, 1907, at the Catholic University of America at Washington. Next year will mark not only the sil- ver jubilee of his ordination but the tenth anniversary of his consecra- tion as Bishop of Savannah. Bishop Keyes was born in Dingle, County Kerry, Ireland, February 28, 1876, and after completing his classi- cal education, in which he won high honors, he became a teacher in his native community. While still young he came to the United States and became a member of the faculty of All'Hallows College, Salt Lake City. conducted by the Marist Fathers. In 1901 he entered the novitiate of the Marist Fathers at Washington, D. C., made his philosophical and theologi- cal studies at the Marist College at Catholic University, an was ordain- ed twenty-five years ago. After his ordinaCon Bishop' Keyes was named professor of moral theol- ogy and canon law at the Marist Seminary, and became one of the leading authorities in the country on these subjects. In March, 1922, he was appointed president of the Marist College, and in July of the same year his selection as Bishop of Savannah was announced; he was consecrated at Savannah October 15, 1922. During his nine years in Georgia the Diocese of Savannah has under the direeton of Bishop Keyes made gratifying progress, and this progress was made in the quiet, unobtrusive way' characteristic of the Bishop. New parishes have been establish- ed, new churches erected in mission territory, new structures reared in established oarishes and other indi- cations of the forward movement of the Diocese abound: The most encouraging evidence of the advance of Catholicity in Geor- gia during the. espisoopate of Bishop Keyes is found in the number of priests _ordained for the Diocese dur- g the past nine years. Although death has lald a heavy hand on the seeulfir clergy of the Diocese, the number of secular priests has in- creased one-third, from twenty-one to twenty-eight, according to the Catholic Directories of 1922 and 1931, and the number of students for the priesthood have increased nearly fifty per cent, from thirteen to nineteen, sacraments from Rev.
