+July 2010 +



The first day of July is the Solemnity of the Precious Blood but the entire month of July is dedicated to the Feast. There will be Solemn Mass at Hampstead at 7pm and we do hope to see as many as possible of our London people. Please pray during July for our small Mission of The Precious Blood in Liverpool and for Bishop Daryl Woodward and the Missions on Merseyside.






Or, as we say in Czech, Svati Kyril a Metody! They were the Apostles to the peoples of Bohemia and Moravia and translated the scriptures into the old Slavonic language. Their Feast is July 7th when there will be Solemn Masses as follows: London at 7pm; Chrudim, 10am; Pardubice Central, Noon; Pardubice Semtin [factory Mass] at 4pm; Havlickuv Brod, 6pm; Prague [Bila Hora] at 6pm.
These Notes are, of course, widely distributed among our Czech Missions, translated into Czech by Mr. Petr Bozon, and these Czech Mass times are therefore important to our Czech Faithful!  At time of writing, the Mass times in Brno are Noon (as usual) and the evening Mass yet to be decided.  Consult Father Josev.



On account of the growth of the ArchConfraternity it really has become difficult to give every Mission a monthly Intention in the actual Kalendar. Some readers may have observed recently that a few flourishing Missions were not mentioned in May or June. We must also keep before us the vital obligation to pray for the needs of our suffering world, and these must be part of the Kalendar Intentions.
Please pray daily for all our Clergy and people. The Chapter also asks you to remember our Holy Father, Pope Benedict, and his forthcoming Visitation to Great Britain in September.


This is always kept on the Sunday nearest to the actual date of the Feast which is July 17th. This year then the Feast is observed on Sunday, July 18th and is of obligation throughout the entire ArchConfraternity. Our Czech brethren are not under this rule, yet also always most generously keep this Welsh Feast of Our Lady, Patroness of Wales, which is part of Bishop Anthony’s Title.


There will be Solemn Mass at 11.30am at the home of Glenys and Dai in Treorchy. Father Flynn hopes for a really good turn-out from all the South Wales & Monmouthshire Missions!  A celebratory Summer Buffet Lunch (Bring-and-Share) will follow the Mass. As is now the custom, the annual Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Penrhys will take place at about 4pm. Cars will transport pilgrims to the village of Penrhys and it will be possible to drive part of the way to the mountain-top Shrine before a necessary walk. There will be Rosary and sprinklings at the Shrine.
For those unable to make the Pilgrimage there will be Vespers and Rosary back in Treorchy.  Last year’s Pilgrimage was most inspiring  as we are sure this year’s will be too.  Pray for sun!!
Mrs Eve Talbot reported 27 Faithful at the Solemn Mass on Monday, 14th June at Llantrisant. It was the Feast of Saint Basil, but there was also commemoration of Saint Anthony of Padua with Blessing of Lilies.



At time of writing the Mass on June 28th has yet to be offered. The Chapter is very grateful to our Holborn stalwarts – renewed thanks to Ruth and friends. We now have six students attached to the Mission and at regular intervals they spread the Faith by word of mouth as well as by leafleting. Of course the Hampstead Oratory is but a short bus ride from Russell Square and it is always good to welcome the Holborn people at Hampstead Masses.

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  +






























As Bishop Anthony has said before: So many Catholic treats during the summer months! Sunday, July 25th is no exception as it is the Solemnity of Saint James, the Great, brother of Saint John. He was with Saints Peter and John at the Transfiguration of our Saviour, and the first of the Apostles to suffer martyrdom under Herod Agrippa. He is venerated as the Apostle of Spain where he voyaged to convert the Spanish people. His Shrine at Compostella is the most renowned place of Pilgrimage in Spain. In memory of his journey to Spain (from which he returned) it is the custom to bless a grotto of sea shells, at the centre of which is a little token ship, before or after Mass on the Feast. There will be Solemn Mass and Blessing of Sea Shells at Hampstead at 1pm on the day.  This time allows people from other Missions to attend, should they wish.  Father Flynn will offer a Solemn Mass at Abertillery at Noon.
















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.
















The Chapter is happy to report that Dame Patricia Earl-Williams, Guardian at Southampton, is restored to health. We particularly thank her for her monthly generosity in sending postage stamps towards the cost of the Kalendar & Newsletter. Once again we publicly thank Mrs Peggy Derwent for another generous donation to ArchConfraternity funds. The next Southampton Mass will be offered in the late summer.  So many thanks to you ALL for your kindness and loving support.



















Magda and the congregation thank a newcomer, Mrs Mary Cale, for a generous donation. Welcome indeed Mary!  Next Queenstown Road Mass on Wednesday, July 21st at 7pm                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

















The last listed Mass was on Monday, June 7th at 6pm and was of the Second Sunday after Pentecost.  Catrina reported 34 people, some of course from Ebbw Vale and the Rhondda.
Angela and a small group of our Midhurst folk will be paying what seems to be establishing itself as their annual visit to South Wales, staying, by kind invitation, in turn, with people in Abertillery, Rhondda and Monmouth. They will be with Catrina during the last part of July. On Sunday, June 20th, Fourth after Pentecost, there was Sung Mass at Six Bells at Noon when Mrs Churchill reported 28 Faithful, some being absent on holiday. Father Flynn stayed with her overnight and the following day was given a leisurely tour, by car and on foot, of the delights of Six Bells, including its beautiful lower slopes with panoramic views of the valley below. Thanks so much to all our dear friends there!



















Friday, July 9th is the Solemnity of Ss John Fisher & Thomas More, and the Patronal Feast of the Rochdale Mission. Father Flynn will be staying with the Quinn family as usual and there will be Solemn Mass at 7pm, followed by a Summer Buffet. Manchester people all promise to come! That will be two visits by Father Flynn in little over a week, but he is of course “collected and returned” by car! Thanks to Johnny Quinn for all the driving. We know how much they love to have Father with them; for a good Irishman who is based in South Wales, Lancashire is becoming a third home! Thank you, dearest Moira, for everything.


















The work in Angus continues apace with regular Masses at Aberlemno, Arbroath and Dundee. Canon Harry Anson reports continued good attendance at St. Curitan’s, Dundee. Greetings from us all to our stalwarts in Dundee and in Forfar! Two “new” ladies recently contacted Bishop Anthony, asking for the address of our church in Dents Road, Arbroath. Canon Harry has given them a warm welcome!  Thanks also to Mrs Jenny Edwards, Guardian of Saint David’s, Kirriemuir, for all she does.  Bishop Anthony will be with you soon!
