Bishop Clark to Fr Clothier: Visitation Day

Thanking Fr Clothier for the day - full of the Spirit. Good learn of the congregation's view of your pastoral care and that Tom Murray has chaperoned you into East Anglian parochial life. Thanks him for the Sony Clock/radio with the generous offering. Hope you can bring the Abbot with you for lunch on 1st July. Do take care of yourself - having a proverbial day-off and cosseting/feeding yourself!

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Form letter from Fr Birch re Mass Offerings at the Shrine

Addressed to one who has made a Mass Offering
Due to the large number of requests it cannot be guaranteed that an individual Mass will be said at the Shrine.
The enclosed is an explanation of the Novena of Shared Masses. If you do not reply then the presumption is that you want an individual Mass - it may be said by another priest who will receive the offering and the intention. If an individual Mass is very special to you then Fr Birch will try to accommodate you.

Fr Birch to Bishop Clark: Mass Offering and Stipends procedure

Fr Birch states that:

  • People expect masses to be said at the Shrine
  • they presume the stipend goes to the Shrine
  • the current system saddens them
  • they are joyous at the enclosed system.
    The new system means they know what is happening - gives figures to illustrate the system
    Naturally the canonical and traditional stipend - a Mass for those who require it - 623 on the waiting list
