+August 2010 +



There will be Solemn Mass at Southampton on Saturday, August 21st at Noon. And we look forward very much to being with all our loyal friends again. Dame Patricia’s eye operation has been successful and Mrs Peggy Derwent’s eyesight has also improved.  We thank Our Lady and Saint Teresa for many blessings – nor do we forget the craft of skilful surgeons. The Mass will be that of the Immaculate Heart of Mary which falls the following day and will, as ever, conclude with the Veneration of Saint Teresa with the Blessing and Distribution of Roses. The lovely custom of performing this particular homage at various Southampton Masses during the year has been established for some time. We thank the members of the Mission for their unstinting generosity. Following Mass it is the intention of Bishop Anthony to receive Mrs Peggy Derwent and Mr. Ken Bell into the Order of Saint Pancras.  Deo Gratias.






None of you would expect the August Kalendar to be without mention of this great Feast on the 5th of the month: Thursday this year, and the tenth Anniversary of Bishop Anthony’s Ordination to the Sacred Priesthood at Kettering by Bishop Robert McBride.   There will be Pontifical Solemn Mass at Hampstead at 7pm, followed by Holy Rosary for the Conversion of the entire world to JESUS and MARY. It is Our Lord who must reign – not any other false “prophets” and not any other false “gods” ! The Feast of Our Lady of the Snows commemorates the Christian Triumph over the forces of the Turks at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571 when Our Blessed Lady sent heavy snow in August to confound the infidel. If you love Jesus and His most Holy Mother, pray constantly for new miracles of that sort. As Father Flynn so often says, we neglect to implore Our Lady for help in the way that we should….



The last listed Mass was on Saturday, July 3rd at Noon, Feast of Saints Julius and Aaron when Renee reported 21 in attendance. There was lunch in the garden and Benediction at 4pm. On Thursday, August 26th the second special local Feast occurs, the Mission’s Patronal in fact: Saint David Lewis of Monmouthshire, who is of course one of the 40 Martyrs of England and Wales.
There will be Solemn Mass at 6pm at Usk, but the service will be preceded by the annual Pilgrimage on foot to nearby Usk Churchyard where Saint David Lewis is buried.  Full details from Renee Peterson. We thank all our Monmouth & Usk stalwarts for all they do. We hope as many as possible from the other Monmouth-
shire and South Wales Missions will make an effort to be present.  Bring-and-Share Supper follows Mass.


The last listed Mass was on Wednesday, July 14th at 6pm, Feast of Saint Bonaventure. There were seventeen Faithful present and Eileen treated us to a delicious fish-and-chip supper afterwards. Four of the Shepherds Bush people made it to Hampstead on Sunday, July 18th for the Solemnity of Our Lady of Penrhys. The next Goldhawk Road Mass will be offered on Sunday, August 8th at Noon – Eleventh after Pentecost. (Evening Mass that day at Hampstead at 7pm).  Some of our Shepherds Bush ladies are planning a three day Pilgrimage to Storrington and Midhurst in early September.


The August Notes would be incomplete without a report on the Mass and Pilgrimage on the Feast of Our Lady of Penrhys. Thanks so much to all our Faithful from various neighbouring Missions for making the journey to Treorchy for the Mass and then to Penrhys for the annual Pilgrimage.  Glenys reported 43 people at the Solemn Mass in the Scouts’ building. This was followed by a celebration Bring-and-Share lunch before the majority of the congregation made its way to the mountain-top Shrine at Penrhys. It was an inspiring, deeply spiritual occasion, Father Flynn says. Bishop Anthony will truly do his best to be present next year.  A special, second collection was made for the local Scouts and we thank them for their kindness. Glenys reports that she and Dai are negotiating a formal arrangement with them for the use of the building for major Feasts when a large congregation is anticipated.



Sunday, August 15th is the Solemnity of the Assumption of Our Lady and, quite apart from the fact that it falls this year on Sunday, is obviously an Holy Day of Obligation when we are bound to hear Mass.  The usual times of Mass will apply, and there will also be Solemn Mass at Tredegar at Noon, thanks to Miss Riley who hopes people from other Missions will make the effort to travel to Tredegar. The following Sunday, Octave Day of the Assumption, is the Feast of The Immaculate Heart of Mary. Usual Mass times, with  extra ones at 5pm at Covent Garden at Dame Della Edling’s, and Solemn Mass in the Rhondda, at Llantrisant at Noon, thanks to Eve Talbot. That Mass will be followed by a Bring-and-Share lunch, hopefully in Eve’s lovely garden if weather permits.

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 































Father Zezulek telephoned Bishop Anthony towards the end of July to report that all is flourishing with something like forty Faithful at the Main Solemn Sunday Mass up at Bila Hora. There are now three Masses down in Svaty Pankrac in the old shop building which the Prague people have leased. Those times are Sunday at 6pm, and Wednesdays & Fridays both at 6pm also. Our love and thanks and prayers are with you all. Special thanks to Father’s sister, Pani Zezulkova, for all she does.

















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.
















to Father Don Coleman, a Catholic priest in Kent, for two generous donations to the ArchConfraternity. A special Mass has been offered for him.



















With its three Mission branches at Brecon, Crickhowell and Ystradgynlais, our Breconshire Parish remains the largest. We have so many reasons to be grateful to our dear Father Flynn who covers all the South Wales/Monmouthshire Parishes for us, as well as Rochdale.
But Father loves what he does and is quick to point out that he is “collected and returned”  in all cases! We thank our dedicated team of drivers. At the time of writing, the Mass at Brecon on July 30th has yet to take place. We thank Miss Fitzell, one of our new adherents, for her hospitality.  Every morning there is a daily Mass at Ystradgynlais, provided Father Flynn is in residence; it is normally at 8am, and we are glad that so many of our Breconshire folk take spiritual advantage of this.


















Miss Riley reported an excellent attendance of 28 Faithful at the Tredegar Mass on July 20th. As listed above, there will be Solemn Mass at Tredegar on the Feast of the Assumption at Noon. Father Flynn is also offering Solemn Mass on the Feast of the Martyrdom of Saint John Baptist at Tredegar Road, Ebbw Vale, and our dear Mrs O’Shea invites all the surrounding Parishes, as usual. Mass at Noon, followed by Buffet Lunch. Benediction around 4pm. Do please all turn up! There is to be a special Collection that day in deep gratitude to Father Flynn, and to honour all he does.
