Scope and content

Novice Master at Manresa House [Jesuit house, Birmingham] suggested the approach regarding Cyril Banham training to become a secular priest in this Diocese. Always wanted to become a priest but was delayed following an operation in 1914 for empyema. Will support the cost of the training. Cyril saw Canon Drake recently on this matter.
