Mrs C Balfour to Bishop: Offer to take/build house and provide room for Mass in some isolated district

If she took/built a house and provided a room for Mass, could the Bishop use this in some isolated place? She would provide equipment for a small chapel and give hospitality to the priest. Cannot pay his stipend or pay expenses; cannot build a chapel. Only afford to provide facilities for saying Mass every week and help in some way to develop a nucleus for a small mission. Refers to permission given by the Bishop for Mass in a little house at Burnham Overy when Fr Sebastian Ritchie of the Birmingham Oratory (a cousin) stayed. The nearest Mass was 7 miles away and 3 Catholics in the village were unable to get to the Sacraments - ".. this is the case all through your diocese." Going to South America for the Winter and not back until May. Please advise how she can help.
Postscript: "I am Mrs Reginald Balfour. I think you very probably knew my husband"
Manuscript annotation: "Wrote and told her about Attleborough to be served from Wymondham and asked her to communicate with Fr Phillips at Wymondham Oct 21 / 26."

Balfour, Charlotte Mrs

Mass at Hethersett

Methodist Church has welcomed the approach to use their church on Saturday evenings. Well suited, so will start on Saturday 3 January 1987.
Attleborough Methodist Church will meet on 6 January [1986] to consider our request. If successful then will start Sunday masses there from February [1986].

Fr Wilson to Fr Brown : Attleborough Finances

Fr Wilson understands that Fr Brendon Peters is carrying out a cure of souls at Quidenham with Attleborough part of his responsibility. The costs of doing this should be coming from collections. Hence Fr Wilson treats him like any other parish. If not correct then the Bishop should sort it out between Fr Brown, Fr Peters and Bob McCormick.
Added manuscript note: "I call Brendan's cure "Quidenham / Attleborough" but have had no account from him."

Acknowledges letter of 29 October. Will establish an Altar Society. Dr Gaynor's offer of £25 will be accepted. Mgr Freeland will pay rent for the Chapel.

Please forward vestments, etc. to her. Propose to start on 7th November.
Armistice Service - vicar has asked him to take part in a combined service - would it be wise for me to take part?

Fr Phillips to Bishop: Lectures in Attleborough

Asking the Bishop for permission to have a series of lectures by Fr Vassal-Phillips in Attleborough, from Nov 24 to Dec 1st. Congregation is down to 3 (through deaths & departures) but Fr Phillips does not want to give it up and Fr VP has roused "slackers".
Manuscript annotation: "Granted. [illegible] PM Attleborough Nov 8 / 29."

Fr Phillips to Bishop: Attleborough Mass - new location; Excused contribution to Cathedraticum?; Dr Arendzen lecture leaflet

Attleborough mass now at the Drill Hall, larger and more convenient than the Griffin Hotel. Mgr Freeland suggested he write to be excuse of the Cathedraticum as he is a "Poor Mission". Encloses a leaflet on the lectures of Fr Arendzen. Asks for a Memento for the Mission next week.

Fr Phillips to Bishop: Acknowledged receipt of vestments; CWL letter and application sent to London

Decided to wait until after first Mass in Attleborough to tell Bishop of receipt of vestments. Sent CWL application to London; additional vestments (Cope & Humeral Veil) badly wanted as mice have eaten hole sin them and the material is perished. Notices that Miss Jarvis offer included these items, so could cancel London application. Will send details of Tabernacle veils and other articles required.
Manuscript annotation: "Ans: Have asked Miss Jarvis to send you a form to be filled up and countersigned by me. Nov 12 / 26."

Fr Phillips to Bishop: Mass numbers; gas laid on; Attleborough as a mass centre?

"Lapsi" causing him concern - they know little and care little. But, a small nucleus of solid Catholics help. Church maintenance being done; gas has been laid on under hire arrangement at 26/- per year. 30 at Mass; more could come but expensive to get here - perhaps could say a Mass at Attleborough for the 7 or 8 who have difficulty getting here.

Fr Chapman to Canon McBride: 1977 returns for Watton & Attleborough

RAF Watton: collections (average £15 per week) , payments, expenses ; mass attendance 50 to 62. Attleborough: collections, expenses.
Fr Chapman liked looking after Watton, but his health is not good and he gets exhausted and would like to be relieved of Watton. Finances declining, a lot of work on house, cottage & hall. New roof needed for church (estimate at £4,050 + 8% VAT).

Fr Chapman to Bishop: Use of Wymondham Abbey Church whilst own church being worked on

Fr Chapman advising the Bishop that due to on-going works at his Church he will be saying Mass at Wymondham Abbey for first 3 Sundays of December. The Vicar there has already obtained his own permissions. Since Fr Chapman already uses Anglican churches at Attleborough and Hethersett, he assumed that this would not cause a problem to the Bishop.

Fr Chapman to Bishop: Releasing Attleborough - Fr Crowther to take on?

Fr Chapman did not know Abbot Haworth was leaving Quidenham. He considers that Fr Crowther should have Attleborough and the villages to the South. Without Attleborough things would be easier as the parish too extensive to cover properly. Fr Chapman has been putting the Attleborough collection into a Diocesan account - some £1600 now - which the Bishop had agreed to. He did this since the attitude of their parish council showed him to be a stranger and they were covered by the Abbot anyway. He has only said mass their once but in four years he knows many of the Catholics - they are all right - but they "want to paddle their own canoe".
Manuscript annotation: "Archbishop Worlock - against appointment of Fr Crowther."

Fr Brown to Bishop: Review of parish boundaries welcome; comments on pastoral care in Attleborough

Glad to hear of a review of the parish boundaries with Vicar-General or Dean. Fr Brown acknowledges that the priest cannot do it all - but it is important that there is close contact with the priest through the Sacred Liturgy. The people of Attleborough are not getting this as Fr Peters is far from well. They are being told that they are with Quidenham and consider that the priest is only there to take their collection. Whilst there is a Parish Committee they do not respond to his hints that he'd like to be involved. He thinks there is a problem with trust of priests.
He was contacted by the Council of Churches in Attleborough which is intending to attend the Catholic Mass for Advent. Attleborough people feel they do not want their non-Catholic friends to see the liturgy as currently carried out. Hence Fr Brown is arranging to celebrate this Mass himself.
Finally, he was not "knocking" anyone - it is just that the Ad Clerums don't reflect addressing practical difficulties in organising communities.

Fr Brown to Bishop: Quinquennial review of Wymondham; Strategy for presence in Attleborough

Chris Toller (of ????) undertook the 5 year review of Wymondham property. Nothing to worry, except to reserve £10,000 for re-roofing the Presbytery in a year or so. They considered future development of the parish in Attleborough, given that the parish has no property there. The old C of E Hall is to come to the market soon, Chris Toller sees this as an opportunity. So Fr Brown is raising it with the Bishop despite his lack of means. Sister Alies is soon to be out of hospital but will not be able to drive and it is thought that having her based in Attleborough would provide someone on the spot would provide support for local people.
