Phillips, Murial Mrs

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."

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

Bishop to Fr Birch: Executive Committee 11 May 1982

Line of communication require that Mgr. McBride, as chairman, is consulted first. Must have employment contracts prior to grievance and disciplinary procedures. Pay back overdraft now - end of season at latest. Over-manning?

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)

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... ?"
