Bishop Clark to Mrs Griesen: Fr Kerby appears gruff & unsympathetic - but he's not really like that. Urges her to go see the Pope

Fr Kerby may seem gruff & unsympathetic - he's not really like that - he possibly did not know how many places the Parish would be assigned. The Vicar General, Mgr. McBride is writing to priests about the selection process. Bishop urges her to add her name and that she won't be the only one with a partner who is not a Catholic.

Bishop to Fr Birch: Establishment of Walsingham as the National Shrine

Discussions with the Cardinal (in Denmark, with Canon McBride) suggest that the Shrine will be the National Shrine. The Shrine Council should not forget the intense efforts over the last 15 years, in which Roland Connelly should receive much credit. Given that the Ordinary of East Anglia is considered “accountable” for Walsingham Shrine, then the Bishop has directives:

  1. the Vicar General (Canon McBride) to be chair of the Executive Committee
  2. the Cardinal insists that “we get it right”: the Mass will be the Mass of Our Lady, statue of Our Lady is to go to Wembley for the Pope’s visit; Fr Birch to produce the detailed programme
  3. A statue of our Lady of Walsingham should be in the Chapel of Reconciliation – tapestry idea is troubling
  4. Anglican Administrator invited to Wembley for Ecumenical representation
  5. Slipper Chapel development to be completed before property initiative
  6. Consecration on 25 March to be low key with Shrine Council members in attendance and any others who can attend; not specifically inviting the Hierarchy.

Parishioner to Bishop Clark: Unhappy with Fr Kerby following his response to a request to see the Pope at Wembley

A request to Fr Kerby to add her name to the list for those wishing to see the Pope in Wembley elicited an upsetting response. After her and her husband have provided so much support to the Church in St Ives, she asks whether she is thought of as being "second class".
