              Part of Northampton Diocesan Travelling Mission - Fr McCormick

              Portable altar set up ready for Mass.
              Reverse: "Fr Mac2's First Pre-Vatican II portable altar. It was in two pieces - a fairly heavy folding table (made of beechwood) - there was an oblong hole in the centre of the top for the altar stone. The other piece was an oblong beechwood frame which screwed onto the top back edge of the table and on which the reredos curtain and crucifix were hung. All other altar prerequisites I carried in a big case (as seen in the photo). This photo I took in a pub in Histon (Cambs) one Sunday in 1959 - Notice I turned the dartboard to face the wall!

              Bishop returns drawing of Altar. He does not like it; it is too like a couple of boxes. Those he showed it to thought it was a vestment chest & liked it as such. But, if Fr Clare wants it, has found money for it & subscribers like it, he can have it.

              Pleased Bishop agrees with him about height of altar piece. He has had great tussle with artist as she made it higher in the sketch & some priests were in favour. Architect agreed it should be lower. Sacristan will then be able to put candles on altar without using steps.

              Proposing new altar in memory of Fr Allen. Sends sketch. It will be suitable for new church when built. Describes it. No difficulty in raising money for it. Artist is the one who did the Stations of the Cross. Total cost about £50. Sorry about Bishop's indisposition.
              Bishop annotation: "gradine too high in proportion to the altar. Whole is ??? Sent back drawings March 10 1931".

              Fr Graham's niece has sent the pyx and oil stock to Fr Pilkington. Fr Flint hall pick them up when he does the Hingham-Yelverton round in a fortnight. The niece has written to say that the altar stone is Fr Graham's property. Perhaps the bishop confused that with the one given by the bishop to Fr Flint for Brandon?

              Roof soon to be finished. Considering a new Tabernacle for £25 and a new simple oak table with four supports for the altar - this will suffice until a more permanent can be obtained. In discussion with Mr Hastings about the provision of altar rails which had been ruled out to save cost. Hopes that the new (it will be so after so many changes) is nearing completion and will visit next week. Offers to say masses for the Cathedral Fund - only ten Mass intentions at present.

              Puts forward a number of reasons for having a change in Mass scheduling to include anticipatory masses, to space them out to allow for the tide and parishioners crewing boats, to assist visitors to attend Mass. Confirms central heating is "to be done commercially!" Planning permission is needed for a boiler house. Wants a garage but cannot have the wood and asbestos construction as there are restrictions set by the planners. to protect the Conservation Area. Describes changes within the Church: tabernacle moved; wood oiled; wall painted; new Stations of the Cross installed (awaiting the fifteenth from Florence); re-siting of altar planned. Bishop of Lynn has given permission for the use of St Nicholas Church (but must wait for the new vicar to arrive).
