Bishop to Fr Banham: Mix-up between Wymondham and Woburn

Seems to have been a muddle about vestments, etc. which you asked for from Ass. Perpet. Adoration, Horseferry. Bishop has a list of items from Fr Phillips and is writing to the Assoc. It will come right. They seem to have been very generous.
Bishop grants faculties to the Jesuit Father who is going to stay with the Lyons at Christmas.

Bishop to Fr Brown: Visitation - 7/8 September 1985; sorting out Attleborough

Thanking Fr Brown for his "care" during the Visitation on 7/8 September. The Bishop finds that he has not yet replaced his "reserves" and will have to pace himself for some time. His heart went out to the orphans at Attleborough.
Resolution to Attleborough depends on (1) linking Swaffham to Watton, (2) re-establishing Attleborough to Wymondham parish. Thanks Fr Brown for the generous offering to the "kitty".

Bishop to Fr Brown: Visitation - 8/10 July 1988

Valuable & vigorous time on a programme which at first seemed daunting but was fully vindicated. Bishop did visit the whole of the parish. Very much liked what he encountered and thanked Fr Brown and Sister Alies for their time & energy. Attleborough has no immediate answer; building there is still thought of, but the Bishop favours the Methodist Church as a good venue. Suggests Fr Brown should programme in some painting. The hall may still provide adequate service but for how long? Wymondham is a happy and well organised parish.

Bishop to Fr Brown: Attleborough or Watton?

Three large market towns and only one church. Watton seems to have priority, so long as the RAF do not pull out. Attleborough though, does it need a permanent church? The community there is small and we should be open to co-operation with other Christian churches if it is offered. He doubts that they are in the position to invest real money in the suggested venture. Instinct then is for Watton. Right? Please guide.

Bishop to Fr Brown: Considering delivery of pastoral care and parish boundaries

The Bishop insists that Fr Brown "cannot do the morally impossible". Note Dereham was erected as a parish to enable Mass at Hethersett. Attleborough should be discussed between Fr Brown and the Vicar-General or Dean to see what is possible. It is sensitive with Fr Brendan Peters only 80% well. Bishop is thinking out loud on paper. Watton: the Bishop has a candidate in mind, but will consult with Fr Brown.
"It is no 'theological nicety' that we will need (structural ) laity involvement on a deeper scale than ever before...", Bishop is uneasy if pastoral responsibility is seen as exclusively pertaining to the Parish priest.

Bishop to Fr Brown: "In God's Name" by David Yallop

The book is a mish-mash of fact and error written to destroy the credibility of the Catholic Church. "... not only Christ's Church but it is also a wagon-load of sinners." ".. to be loved and cherished in spite of our failures, for it is the Body of Christ." The Bishop would not refer to such libels and calumnies in a Pastoral, nor in any pronouncement from the pulpit.
p.s. looking forward to September's visitation. "Marcinkus may have been a fool and incompetent but he is not a bad man. I know him personally and he has been savagely traduced."
