Abbot Neve to Bishop: Establishing a foundation in Aldeburgh

(French manuscript) Abbot Neve has pleasure in telling the Bishop that the Prioress of the Bethany Monastery [Priory?] agrees to send a professed religious to Aldeburgh with a view to a foundation there. She will not be able to come before 8 December. The Prioress will send details to the Superior of the Oblates of Aldeburgh. The nun must contact Rome to obtain canonical direction for the new congregation - this will not happen until next Spring. After that they will come under the Bishops control. Finishes by saying he will be in England at the end of October and will try to meet the Bishop.
Manuscript annotation "Wrote [undecipherable]. Away till Nov. 10 home till 17th Nov. Oct. 28/26.".

Nève, Théodore Dom (1879-1963)

Annie Allnutt to Bishop Riddell: Bishop's visit; concern over arrangements; concern regarding fund for church

Annie Allnutt congratulates the Bishop n withholding consent to start building in Southwold. She is concerned over the low level of involvement of Mr & Mrs Crimmen in the recent visit by the Bishop, given their generosity in time and resources for the Mission. Asks the Bishop to be quite sure that Fr Mason is the right priest in the right place. Comments on his approach to certain congregation members of good standing - her own "unpardonable sin is that I advised Fr Mason some years ago to quit Southwold at once and seek a post in the Bishop's House where he would have work and supervision; he being young, full of life and animal spirits and fond of the good things in life." Comments that the building fund has not increased in years (except for the £100 donated by the Bishop) in spite of fund raising events.


Bishop Clark to Cardinal Hume: Visit by the Melchite Patriarch of Antioch

His Beatitude Maximus V (Hachim), Melchite Patriarch of Antioch (Jerusalem and Alexandria) is to visit 1 to 6 September 1982 after his visit to Ireland.
Bishop Clark has become unwittingly involved in the (complicated) preparations for the Patriarch's visit and wishes to visit London after Ireland before returning to Syria. The emissary, Mgr Jena-Clement Jeanbart, and the Bishop have agreed some ground rules (5 of them). However, the dates are wrong because Catholic Authorities are still "en vacance" at the time of the visit. Could the Cardinal help and ask a home Bishop to host the visit and provide suitable accommodation for the Patriarch and his entourage?

Bishop Clark to Fr Birch: No Papal Visit to Walsingham - response

Points briefly, but not intended to be brusque.

  1. irresponsible to promote this distasteful campaign to induce a visit
  2. No decisions taken; matter surely on the agenda of the November Hierarchy Meeting; to involve Carding and Archbishop Worlock
  3. finances do not work out - the Irish still paying off a large debt [for the Papal visit to Knock]
  4. issues over meeting the Archbishop of Canterbury at Walsingham
  5. disparaging remarks about "taking out Lady to the Pope" do not deter Bishop Clark - she is more important than her shrine
  6. Fr Birch exaggerates. Canterbury visit (probably) of far greater significance
  7. Once the Hierarchy decided on priorities, Bishop will be clear and uncompromising - no blame nor chiding - his idea can be sold to the nation and a community which wants to glimpse the Pope
  8. "I am not letting you down..."
