Fr Clare from Bishop: New altar boxy but if it works for Fr Clare then have it

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.

Cary-Elwes, Dudley Charles Rev (1868-1932)

Fr Clare to Bishop: New altar changes in design proposed

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.

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.

Bishop of Lynn has given permission for the use of St Nicholas Church (but must wait for the new vicar to arrive).

Fr McCormick to RCDEA Archives: Travelling Mission; altars; Museum donation

Having spoken to Fr Fears, Fr McCormack thinks that the folding altar is his 3rd version. He wonders how it came to be in the Brandon garage. At one time he gave it to Mr Eric St John-Foti who had bought a farm, restored it ("Hermitage Hall") and opened a museum there. A while later it was all sold but Fr McCormack was not contacted about this at the time.
He is known as "Mac2" as Fr McBride is also known as "Mac".
