PAGE 6 , POST-G/ .ETTE; APRIL,2t, -'2017 Michael Sinatra Announces Candidacy for District 1 City Councilor Seat Generations Advancing Together through Education Offering Low Income Parents Job Training and Childcare ABCD announces a new initiative that links career development with childcare. Many low-income parents are discouraged from seeking employment and climbing the career ladder because they lack the skiUs and education needed to seek upward mobility. ABCD's GATE Program aims to encourage low-income par- ents to reach their potential by offering specified, training pro- grams towards comprehensive office skills, as well as skills towards a career in banking and finance, or gaining certifi- cation and training to become a nursing assistant or pharmacy technician. By bundling job training with childcare ABCD's GATE Program gives unemployed and under-employed low-income Boston residents with children the time and liberty to learn skills in a career track of their choice. Joint planning and resource- sharing structures will align supportive resources for strug- gling parents more effectively with the needs of jobseekers through training programs. The applied initiative can ultimately create more career opportuni- ties and a pathway to success. "This is a two-generation approach towards strengthen- ing our under-served families," said ABCD President/CEO John Drew. "As parents gain knowledge and pursue a suc- cessful career, they can focus without the stress of wonder- ing if their child is being prop- erly cared for," Drew said. "This is an opportunity of advance- ment in education for the whole family." The GATE Program is offered three to four times a year to res- idents that qualify. Participants are encouraged to enroll early to address childcare needs. For more information, contact Tiffany Ramos, J.D., GATE Proj- ect Manager, at 617-348-675 i, or by email at Tiffany.Ramos@ BostonABCD. org. ABCD recognizes its part- ners in supporting the GATE Program: YMCA Training, Inc., Child Care Choices of Boston, Asian-American Civic Asso- ciation, Inc., Jewish Vocational Services, Inc., ABCD Head Start & Early Childhood Education, and City of Boston's Office of Workforce Development.

Saint Melchior Grodziecki and the Kosice Martyrs by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Melchior Grodziecki was born in Cieszyn, Poland, in 1582 into the noble Grodski family and received his education in the Jesuit college of Vieflna. In 1603 he entered the Jesuit novitiate of Brno. After making his first religious profession in 1605, he went on to the Jesuit College in Ktodzko ( 1606-- 1607). To be able to teach in high schools, he spent a yeaT in the seminary in Cesk6 Bud6jovice. In 1608, he returned to Ktodzko to complete his education in music. He studied philosophy and theology in the Clementi- num of Prague and in 1614 was ordained a priest. In an attempt to minister to Catholics, Father Melchior along with Hungarian Istv&n Pongr~cz, a colleague from the Jesuit seminary, was sent to Kassa (Kosice), a Calvinist stronghold in the Kingdom of Hungary with the outbreak of the Thirty Year War. The two Jesuits were working in small towns when they heard the news that a Calvinist army was marching on Kosice in an attempt to expand the territory of'Gabriel Bethlen, prince of Transylvania. The Transylvanian army took control of the city on September 5, 1619, and confined the two Jesuits to their residence. On September 7% they broke into their quarters ahd demanded that they accept Calvinism. When the priests refused to do so, the soldiers began beating and stabbing Father Melchior, crushing his fingers and rub- bing flaming torches into his side. Finally they beheaded Fa- ther Melchior. Father Pongr&cz was tortured next, with the soldiers twisting a rope around his head and almost crushing it. The soldiers threw the bodies of the two Jesuits and a compan- ion diocesan priest into a ditch outside the house, but Father Pongracz did not die for another 20 hours. The bodies of the three mar- tyrs were recovered after ne- gotiations and were buried in the vicinity of Kassa. In 1636, they were moved to Slovakia. They were canonized on July 2, 1995, in Ko~ice by Pope John Paul II. Their feast day is on September 7~. ! : i American Wildlife ACROSS 1. Upright monument 6.
