Annie Allnutt to Bishop Riddell: Bishop's visit; concern over arrangements; concern regarding fund for church

Annie Allnutt congratulates the Bishop n withholding consent to start building in Southwold. She is concerned over the low level of involvement of Mr & Mrs Crimmen in the recent visit by the Bishop, given their generosity in time and resources for the Mission. Asks the Bishop to be quite sure that Fr Mason is the right priest in the right place. Comments on his approach to certain congregation members of good standing - her own "unpardonable sin is that I advised Fr Mason some years ago to quit Southwold at once and seek a post in the Bishop's House where he would have work and supervision; he being young, full of life and animal spirits and fond of the good things in life." Comments that the building fund has not increased in years (except for the £100 donated by the Bishop) in spite of fund raising events.

Bishop Appeals for Third World

"Redouble your efforts to aid the poor and oppressed in the Third Wold, the Bishop of East Anglia (Rt Rev Alan Clark) tells the 79,000 Roman Catholics of his diocese in a Lenten message released today."

Dowsey, Gary Rev (1955-)

Bishop Clark to Bishop Grant: Wells; Walsingham Trust; National Shrine

Letter from Gambling - Wells getting cold feet - not use them after Christmas. Walsingham Trust will be in place to ensure the Appeal is pursued. Laurie Tanner's (General Secretary of the Catenians) devastating constructive criticism has been very helpful. Can't be with you because at Lowestoft to bless the new cemetery.

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Bishop Clark to Fr Birch: Executive membership; Policy; Walsingham Appeal

For clarity: the Bishop is not a member of the Executive; he thought he'd made that clear from the beginning. Mgr McBride as Vicar General acts in the Bishop's name and that of Fr Peter Wilson. All efforts are to raise funds and channel them into the basic building and basic equipment for the Chapel of Reconciliation. There is no money to finance any other project e.g. the railway track and the organ - we are in a "poverty trap" to some extent.
This should not undermine morale - lesser items come later, if we can't pay for them and consequently lose them, so be it. It is not too late to send an appeal reminder to parish priests.

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Bishop Clark to Mr Power: Hostel Development

A new Director taking over at the Shrine; most matters left to Vicar General and so did not realise the urgency in the letter. Naturally grateful to the Walsingham Association for the pledge of raising £60,000. Do keep Mgr McBride and the Executive [Committee] in the picture. Every blessing.

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Bishop Clark to Mr Ward: Appeal; Fees

Abortive work costs have to be paid.
Appeal should have a personalised approach by the Bishop - not done - but water under the bridge. The Cathedral is renewing its boilers, etc therefore less of a donation from that parish. Refers to his Ad Clerum in which he states that whilst a generous benefaction underwrites a third of the costs, any approach by Mr Ward should be welcomed.
The pope's visit - go sensitively, unlikely that he will visit Walsingham, so the success of the Appeal should not rest on this alone.

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Bishop to Miss Wiffen: Cannot support a "Diocesan Collection"

The Bishop does not impose many collections on the priests of diocese - two exception cited: St Francis Society, the Priests Education Fund. East Anglia Diocese has already been very generous to the development of the Shrine at Walsingham, but, other charitable organisations could have a similar request. He would be delighted if Fr Wace decides to take a collection in his own parish. Approaching individual parish priests would be acceptable.

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Bishop to Mr Christmas: Will give money for 20x68ft hut

Bishop Keating considers 20ft x 68 ft hut is adequate, and a bargain at £90. He will give the money to the Mission provided:

  1. site is free of restrictions,
  2. Fr Delaney approves and supports this
  3. Congregation guarantee to obtain the funds for everything else - removal, re-erection, fittings and furnishings.
    Their zeal and generosity gave the Bishop great satisfaction.

Keating, William Frederick Rev (1859-1928)
