Staffing of the National Shrine

Contract between Society of Mary and the Diocese of East Anglia for the administration of the Shrine concludes on 6 December. New one needs negotiating or Marist Society withdraw. Bishop and Director greed that three priests needed in running the Shrine. Provides details of scope and work for each. Marist Sisters' role needs to be reviewed too. Changes in role and numbers over time needs to be reviewed. Lists some of the work done by Sacristan / Guestmistress / Office / Shrine Sister. Parish commitment in this should not be overlooked. Growing numbers of Catholics in the area plus the retired Parish priest has not been replaced. A deacon can do some but not all.

Mgr Stark to Shrine Council: Walsingham; Correct title for Shrine

Not able to attend the Council meeting - at the Ransom Reunion at Nottingham Cathedral. He would have raised the matter of the correct title for the shrine.
Argues that the Shrine is "of" Walsingham and is not a Roman Catholic Shrine but a National Shrine. Originally known as the "Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham at King's Lynn" from 1897. Strictly speaking it should be either " the Slipper Chapel" or " Houghton-St-Giles". Fr Birch's excellent potted history would be better worded "National Shrine in the 14th Century Slipper Chapel under the care of the Marist Fathers. Shrine founded 1061; destroyed 1538; restored by Pope Leo XIII at King's Lynn 19th August 1897; translated to the Slipper Chapel by Cardinal Bourne 19th August 1934. The Walsingham Trust, &c." It is important to emphasise Cardinal Bourne's intention, despite the Second Master,Mgr John Filmer, taking his objections to Rome and finding the Cardinal was within his powers to do as he had.

Memorandum - All saints Church: Burnhams Sutton & Elph

A review of the legal situation for an incumbent granting a lease and options thereby. Suggestion is to go for a "Sharing Agreement" in which the Catholic community have the church for all but one day of a year - the CofE community have it for one day in which to hold a joint service; a degree of tact required from both sides.

Mark Little to Bishop: No reason not to write to Huntingdon DC. Julian Limentani can draft a letter.

A memo from Mark Little to the Bishop. Having spoken to Nick Safell, there is no reason why the Bishop shouldn't write to Huntingdon DC in support of the parish's planning application. If he does do so, it would be useful to talk to Julian Limentani who submitted the bid. He is prepared to draft a letter for the Bishop.

Brewer/Trafford - Meeting notes

6 paragraphs being notes on a meeting held between Fr Brewer and Fr Trafford:

  1. Agreement on Fr Trafford's view - school managers need to take a new line for the school; taking into account Diocesan policy and needs for a future secondary and grammar school
  2. Number to not exceed 110 - can be maintained by the admission of non-catholic pupils. This will justify 4 teachers
  3. Managers exercise admission of pupils through the Parish Priest.
  4. No need for grading of the school
  5. LEA to take initiative regarding alterations to buildings
  6. Canon Brewer to take up points 4 & 5 with LEA as necessary.
