Bishop to Fr Chapman: Visitation & Confirmation - back from Australia

Back from Australia at the beginning of the week. Happy with the programme. Be there for 9.30 am Mass and preach at the others. Visitation of the sick could be done on Sunday or he could come over again on Monday afternoon. In the evening he has to be in Lynn for a Penitential Service.

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Bishop to Fr Kerby: Confirmation on 14 January 1996

Confirmation on 14 January 1996. Bishop thanks Fr Kerby for wondeul hospitality at a great occasion and a lovely atmosphere during the Mass. Bishop did speak to many people and they seemed happy with everything. Thanks for the generous cheque. Enjoyed meeting Lucien who gave him quite an insight into Eastern Catholic Churches.

Bishop to Fr Kerby: Depends on percentage ready for Confirmation. Inclined to say "yes" to a busy Parish Priest

Depends on percentage already preparing for Confirmation. If numbers small then willingly waive new stipulation regarding age. If majority "underage" , then might have to rethink. Dubious about reasons for Mums' disquiet. Rather inclined to say "yes" to a busy Parish priest. "Just reassure me on the points raised".

Bishop to Fr Kerby: Not a "fundamentalist" on age at Confirmation. You plead with skill and subtlety.

Bishop is not a "fundamentalist" on the issue of age of Confirmation. Fr Kerby should warn his people in the New Year that in future (underlined) candidates will be from 14+ group. His case pled with skill and subtlety. Important to hold the group together expecting Confirmation in the near future. Please do as you wish.

Bishop to Fr Kerby: Visitation. New Hall can now go ahead.

Thanks for the kind letter and generous cheque. Bishop thoroughly enjoyed the Visitation and was heartened by the number of Confirmations and full attendance at the Masses. Thanks Fr Kerby for all he has done for so many years at the parish. Thank Elizabeth and Ann for their parish work and hospitality over the weekend. Excellent news that the new hall can now go ahead, please convey gratitude to Daphne Reid and all who have helped to bring this about.

Bishop to Fr Kerby: Visitation on 27/28 May 1989. Car accident. Full Timetable. Look after the house.

Bishop mentions an "unnecessary" collision which the insurers could regard as a write-off in spite of engine, transmission, etc. being unaffected. Wonderful visit with a full timetable. Parish community seems in good shape. Look after the house - the bathroom needs attention (could easily become a tip!). Grateful that Fr Kerby is to take Michael Stapleford this Summer as his pastoral director advises that he needs Catholic pastoral experience. Bishop will see Fr Kerby tomorrow.

Bishop to Fr Lydiate: Boy for church (irregularities?). Confessional. Fr Flanagan's things. Fr Donleavy - not supplying in this diocese.

Bishop would not take a boy for the Church who suffers from an irregularity or is spurious (i.e. born of an adulterous union). Such boys not from good Catholic home and the Holy See would not dispense or allow ordination. No where for him. Fr Flanagan's things - let him know where you are depositing them and he may move them. Bishop does not "approve of Fr Dunleavy supplying in this (underlined) Diocese.". Bishop will confirm in Wisbech on 24 June.

Parker, Thomas Leo Rev (1887-1975)

Bishop to Fr Reid: Confirmation of a convert.

Confirmation of existing convert. Bishop presumes that the priest receiving her did not follow the inbuilt rite of including Confirmation in the rite of Reception. Not normally delegated to priests. Except for urgency. Too late for tomorrow's Confirmation at St George's, Norwich. Bishop sets considerable store on the public administration of the Sacrament.

Bishop to Mr Seymour-Priestnall: Unable to lead the Advent retreat

A fast filling diary means that the Bishop cannot commit to a whole weekend. Sundays are particularly difficult since they are reserved for parish visits. On the weekend of 12-14 December, he has a special Mass for those preparing to be Permanent Deacons and a Confirmation Mass on Sunday.

Evans, Michael Charles Rev MTh (1951-2011)

Bishop's Office to Fr Watkin: Visitation arrangements confirmation

Fr John Smith confirms the Bishop will: preach at 8am mass at Gillingham; 10am Confirmation Mass at Beccles will be said in English; preach at the 6.30pm; visits of 10 minutes each i the afternoon; cup of tea at the convent; visit to St Mary's Home. All about best use of the Bishop's time without making it seemed rushed.
p.s "... noted your request for a medal for Reginald Jones"
