+February 2010 +



After a sabbatical eighteen months during which Bishop Daryl was considering prayerfully his future, he has requested formally re-incardination into the ArchConfraternity.
The Chapter of Advice was pleased to agree and so this Spring, the date yet to be arranged, Bishop Daryl will be received and his Episcopal Orders will be regularised. All Bishop Daryl’s friends are delighted to welcome him back and we pray that God will bless the work at Christ The King, Wallasey. We all also pray that now we will set about the great task of making the fledgling Mission of The Precious Blood in Liverpool a living reality, building upon what Bishop Daryl has achieved in the past. God Grant it!   Bishop Anthony and The Chapter have agreed that Bishop Daryl be appointed and enthroned as Bishop of Fountains and Hazelwood, to serve the North of England.







Following our report last time of the elevation of Saint Benedict’s to a Parish within the Borough of Blaenau Gwent, The Chapter received a representation from the Mission of Saint John Baptist, Ebbw Vale and Tredegar, requesting similar Parish status. This has been agreed, and the new Parish of Ebbw Vale, Cwm and Tredegar within the Borough of Blaenau Gwent has been lodged officially, Mrs O’Shea and Miss Riley as joint Guardians. The Chapter wishes to make it clear that the Parochial Title at Abertillery remains “Saint Benedict, Abertillery and Six Bells.”
Father Flynn reported 33 people at the inaugural Mass at Aberbeeg on Monday, January 11th. Glenys, as expected, brought a car-full from the Rhondda and Renee brought three from Usk. There was also a healthy Ebbw Vale and Cwm contingent, and Bishop Anthony is profoundly thankful that the differences between Ebbw Vale and Cwm are now a thing of the past! Dame Catrina Morgan, on behalf of us all , presented Mrs Kath Donovan with a large bouquet, her birthday being  two days later. Both Tommy and Kath were visibly moved during the Solemn Mass, saying afterwards that it brought back such happy memories of the little Saint David’s, Llanhilleth which was closed by the Archdiocese of Cardiff.   As Catrina remarked to Bishop Anthony the next day: “If only they’d close Saint Mary’s, Abertillery, as well, and give it to us!”



This is, of course, Tuesday, February 2nd. Please consult Clergy and Guardians about the times of Masses. So far known: Peterborough at 10am; Shepherds Bush at Noon; Tredegar at 11am; Brecon at 7pm; Hampstead at 7pm; Dundee at 3pm.  The Blessing & Distribution of candles at all Masses.


This is the following day, Wednesday 3rd. The Blessing of throats should follow every Mass on this day, with the invocation: “By the prayers of St. Blaise, may the Lord grant thee health of the throat.”  Our dear saints do so very much for us.   Are we grateful?   Do we thank them enough?..!!......
Saint Blaise was a bishop in Armenia and martyred under the cruel Roman Emperor Licinius in AD 316. Those who venerate him are assured of help against many ailments, and especially those of the throat.


February 9th is the Feast of Saint Teilo and thus the Patronal Feast of our Breconshire Mission. There will be Solemn Mass at Brecon at the home of Mrs Norah Herbert at 7pm and we hope for a grand South Wales turn-out! The inevitable Bring-and-Share Supper to follow and the Brecon ladies are organising a tombola for Mission funds. In Brecon itself we have now five households prepared to host a Mass, and the Chapter is very impressed with the way you all take “turn and turn about.” Thank you, Norah. We look forward to a report afterwards. As all the Breconshire stalwarts know, Father Flynn says daily morning Mass at Ystradgynlais. A note! The little town of Brynmawr which is now part of Blaenau Gwent, but which used to be part of the old County of Brecon, has been added, by request, to Breconshire. We have three Faithful in Brynmawr, found for us in fact by Mrs Herbert on one of what we can only call her “People Finding Walkabouts”!! We don’t thank you Breconshire people enough!



Christmass leads on to Calvary, and Ash Wednesday will be upon us shortly – Wednesday, February 17th. Please consult Clergy and Guardians for times of Masses with Imposition of Ashes; it’s not practical to list every Mass, some of which we don’t yet know.   London times are: Battersea at Noon and Hampstead/Holborn (at the Hampstead Oratory) at 7pm. Because of our present circumstances, the Blessing and Imposition of Ashes is, annually, permitted at all Masses up to and including the First Sunday in Lent. There will be Solemn Mass and Ashing  at the Mission of Our Lady of Penrhys at 7pm at Treorchy in the Rhondda, thanks as ever to Glenys and Dai. We hope that all our South Wales and Monmouthshire folk will make a special effort to attend. A simple Lenten supper to follow Mass; there will, Glenys says, be a small charge for this, all proceeds going to a Catholic charity of the Mission’s choice.

Many more Masses are offered than those listed in the Kalendar; also Rosary with Benediction, and some groups offer their own public Vespers, etc. Please ask Clergy and Guardians!
















They are a source of real income to the ArchConfraternity, helping tremendously with the postal bill for the despatch of the monthly Notes. As we’ve already stressed: many of our older Faithful don’t have access to a computer – and thus to our Web Site – and really do rely on the “old fashioned word” as a vital means of communication. Particular thanks to all who sent stamps during January. Please send a February donation for Our Lady. Cheques should be made payable to “The ArchConfraternity of Our Lady of Victories” and sent to Bishop Anthony at the address at the top of the Kalendar  or  to Mr. Simon Gibbs, our ArchConfraternity Treasurer, at:
Gibbs & Co., Blackwell House, Guildhall Yard, London,EC2V.5AE.
God will bless you.    Holy Mass is offered monthly for all our benefactors.
















As you will see above, the name has finally been normalised and all cheques should be made payable to The ArchConfraternity of Our Lady of Victories.
We thank so many of you for your continuing generosity. Please help us to go from strength to strength!

















Pray for the +Repose of the Soul of Patricia Wroe of Barnsley who died  early January.+RIP
DO PLEASE send in names for inclusion on the Sick List, and indeed tell us to delete the names of those physically recovered in health – or those who have departed to purgatory!!  Holy Mass is offered for them all every month  +
















Please pray for Father Eric Bilton on Wednesday, 24th February – the Patronal Feast of our Barnsley Mission; also for the +Repose of the soul of Father Eric’s mother, Doris, who had a great devotion to Saint Matthias, hence the Mission’s Title. Bishop Anthony wishes to put on public record his warm thanks to Father for his unstinting kindness and generosity to the ArchConfraternity over a long period. The little Mission grows and we have now five regular Mass attendants.   Sung Mass on St. Matthias Day at 11am.
















The Patronal Feast on January 20th was attended by 25 people and it was good to welcome people from other London Missions. Angela brought three from Midhurst. Bishop Anthony preached on “Giving up all for Jesus” – how we sometimes succeed in part, yet more often fail! A lovely Buffet followed. Thanks to  our dear Eileen O’Connor and all the Faithful at Goldhawk Road.    +Bless you for all you do. +
