Abbot Watkin to Bishop Clark: Will address the matter

Mrs Bramley is kind-hearted, etc. she did discuss the letter with the Abbot but also added other parts not seen until the Bishop copied her letter to him. He was delighted not to be governor and will talk to her. On way to Mass at Gillingham; his health has its ups and downs.

Bishop Clark to Bishop Cleary: Attendance at Chapel dedication

Understands the problem. Asks Bishop Cleary to read the minutes of the Shrine Council. Bishop Clark is worried as the man hoped to take the post of Administrative Officer (Manager) has jibbed. Main concern is the bewildering indebtedness of the day-today running of the shrine. "Clive seems impervious to my directive ... he'll have to go. But I want your wise counsel."

Bishop Clark to Br Hawkes: Clarification on role of Permanent Deacon

Councils that Hawkes needs to be very cautious than he is about the path he is treading. Your Deputy Director appointment is not an Executive appointment but one that Fr Birch has made himself. The new Director and the Marist Congregation have to be consulted. Clarifications: 1. cannot endorse proceeding to priesthood; 2. You are a Permanent Deacon with a licence for this Diocese; 3. Only wear the Franciscan habit on very restricted occasions- it is causing confusion.
This may seem hard but it is for your benefit. Feel free to discuss with Canon McBride.

Bishop Clark to Fr Allen: Event well planned

Bishop congratulating Fr Allen on the event yesterday [National Pilgrimage]. Well planned and executed; requires a lot of backroom work. He was happy to accompany the Cardinal on the walk.
Worried about the phrase "The Shrine Management" - watch it - this is the Shrine Council and Executive, not Bernard and John. Bishop abhors "creeping power as much as creeping infallibility!".

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Bishop Clark to Fr Williams: Easter Broadcast

Establishing a chain of command for events like the TV Easter Sunday Broadcast:
Presenter; Fr Tony Rogers); Producer (Malcolm Allsop); Yourself (Director of Shrine); myself; Mgr McBride; Rev Paul Maddison; Stephen Dean etc.

Bishop Clark to Fr Wilson: Walsingham

This badly needs attention,. Gerry [Moorcraft] would laugh cynically! A visit to Walsingham is indicated - Michael Ward (solicitor) assures him that all is in order. Roland is an admirable Pilgrimage Director but hopeless with staff. Campbell Steward speaks accurately. Maybe John Drury could be introduced to this difficult area.

Bishop Clark to Major Steward: Removal as Treasurer

The Shrine is now the responsibility of the new Diocese of East Anglia and the Treasurer of the Diocese will be responsible for the Shrine's financial administration. Your points are noted - agreed that a governing body must be formed which will take a lot of work.

Bishop Clark to Mgr McBride: thanks for help; Lowestoft

Sure that McBride will guide a priest firmly
Anniversary was a deeply memorable affair thanks to Mgr McBride.
Fr Sketch, letter enclosed, [not present], was let off lightly - the lapse rate at Lowestoft could frighten us to death. Pouring over plans at home is not the right use of resources.

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Bishop Clark to Mr Stan Tucker: Administrative Officer (Manager)

Confirmation of invitation for post and your acceptance of it. The Executive Council will consult with you over the responsibilities and powers as well as salary. You known expertise will be required to halt the alarming drift into insolvency and you will have commensurate authority.

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Bishop Clark's evaluation of Tansley Witt notes

General Observations - general agreement; schedule A redrafted; diocese allows appeal funds to accumulate not offset debt
Responsibilities (at the Shrine) - Director (shrine to pay its way): Bishop Clark (oversight) answerable to Bishop Grant (and Fiance Board)
The Pilgrim Church - to await loan reaching whole cost is unrealistic / uneconomic ; need a loan - will the Diocese guarantee it?
Personal Comment - transition form local to national shrine; charge to Diocese remains and must be honoured; focus on Pilgrim Church, rest in suspense
Interest charges - puzzling - Diocese levying interest on itself?

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Bishop McGuiness to Bishop Clark: Shrine Management matters

In receipt of correspondence relating to running of Shrine Council. Cannot attend. However, observes that clash of personalities likely with problems the Shrine has had. Must be clear on responsibility of Shrine Director else becomes a "general dog's body". Similarly for the Manager. Relationship between the two roles is important. Perhaps this will afford Bishop Clark the opportunity to tease out the underlying issues.

McGuiness, James Rev (1925-2007)

Bishop Parker to Fr Innes: Fund management; Leaving for Liverpool

Includes [not present] documentation required for Fr Trafford - grateful if he will undertake to hear the Lowestoft nuns confessions.
The management of the Banham Trust is quite constrained and has worked until now - sets out major aspects of the trust. The Bishop recommends that it stays as it is. However he'd be interested to hear anything Mr Coney or the Abbot can come up with.
Wishes him well in his new activity in Liverpool.

Parker, Thomas Leo Rev (1887-1975)

Canon McBride: Aide-memoire for interview with Fr Birch

  1. Vicar General compliments slip: "E&OE bashed out quickly. Forgot to ask what about Stan Tucker. Mac"
    [E&OE - Errors and Omissions Excepted - document may contain mistakes or may not include some details]
  2. Notes for a no-nonsense meeting with Fr Birch. Many issues to address largely to do with Fr Birch doing his own thing despite directions from the bishop, the Vicar General and the Executive Committee. Several examples given of wayward behaviour - "my position becoming intolerable as a result". Decisions and actions taken which were not within Fr Birch's remit. Peter Wilson: "did you think we were fools... ?"

McBride, Edward Rev (1919-2011)

pg 1 for non-weeklies e.g. EDP, Anglia TV - first paragraph: " Roman Catholics from three counties are meeting next month for the biggest ever assembly to be staged by the Diocese of East Anglia."
pg 2 for "weeklies"; first paragraph: "Wisbech [this word to be changed to suit locality] Roman Catholics are joining parishioners from three counties at the biggest ever assembly..."
Describes the need to develop a five-year strategy to alleviate the impact of the falling number of priests by inviting the laity to undertake particular roles. Mgr Paul Hypher is the assembly's coordinator.

Dowsey, Gary Rev (1955-)
