+ September 2010+


Mass attendances continue strong and we thank all our Abertillery stalwarts for all they do, particularly Catrina Morgan and Pauline Churchill. On Friday, August 20th at 7pm, Father Flynn offered Solemn Mass at Aberbeeg, at the home of loyal parishioners, Mr and Mrs Donovan – Tommy and Kath. Kath rang next day to say that 32 people were present, and that it was a true honour to host Mass for the second time. There were three newcomers: people who used to attend the now redundant, little Catholic Church of Saint David which was situated above Aberbeeg.  Needless to say, they received a warm welcome, and we pray they have found a new home with us. The Mass was of St. Bernard of Clairvaux with commemoration of The Assumption and it was followed by Rosary. The Buffet Supper which followed was, Kath says, a happy occasion of great fellowship. The proceeds of the collection at Mass and the raffle during supper will be put towards the cost of a set of Marian vestments which Father Flynn is having made for the parish. Thanks also for other donations received towards this. The advertised September Mass is on Saturday, 18th at Noon and will be sung at Catrina’s. Bring-and-Share lunch follows.


Following Mass at Tredegar on Monday, September 13th, Father will be collected by Timothy Quinn, one of Moira’s three sons, and driven to Rochdale where he will spend most of that week with Moira and family. To accommodate this, the Tredegar Mass will be at lunch time – 1pm at Miss Riley’s. Tim will drive to Tredegar, accompanied by Moira, to collect Father. It will be Moira’s first meeting with our Ebbw Vale stalwarts, and Catrina will come from Abertillery and Glenys & Dai from the Rhondda. A special lunch to welcome the Quinns will follow Mass. All welcome. The following day is the Exaltation of the Holy Cross and there will be Solemn Mass at Rochdale at 6pm to which Penny and some of our Manchester Faithful have promised to come. The following day is the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows (September 15th) and Father Flynn, accompanied by some of our Lancashire people, will be driven over to Southport for the Inaugural Mass there at Noon. It will be offered at the home of Patricia and Kevin McGuire and we thank them most heartily for their hospitality. Pat and Kevin, in fact, had been looking at our website for about a year, and, when news of the new Southport Mission was first announced, contacted Bishop Anthony by phone. As with the majority of our ArchConfraternity stalwarts, Pat and Kevin have a background of traditional Roman Catholicism and had become alienated from the Novus Ordo Church. We hope this Southport Mass may be the first of many – please pray for the Mission. Unfortunately, some of the local Anglo-Catholics who had left their parish when the old English Missal was abandoned, have decided to return to the C of E, even though they realise it will be a world without their beloved Old Missal! We are so sorry about this, yet wish them well. Four of that group, however, have stayed with the ArchConfraternity, and they will certainly re-discover what they had lost, in the Solemn Mass which Father Flynn will offer on September 15th. This Inaugural Mass was deliberately timed to coincide with the Southport Patronal Feast – Our Lady of Sorrows.  Further Southport Masses will be linked to Father’s visits to Rochdale or to Bishop Anthony’s visits to Manchester. On the Friday evening, one of our dear Quinn ‘clan’ will drive Father home to Ystradgynlais; and the following day, Saturday, he will be back at Abertillery to sing Mass at Catrina’s!! A busy week indeed for Father, though much of it fortified by the great love of Moira and her whole family for him.   Dear Rochdale friends, we cannot thank you enough – though we know you want no thanks.


There were nearly 40 people at the Solemn Mass on Saturday, August 14th. The Mass was of the Vigil of the Assumption with commemoration of Saint Maximilian Kolbe. On account of the weather, our intended Garden Party turned  into a Conservatory Party – in the Garden when the sun showed its face and indoors during the showers! But it was a lovely day and, as ever, Bishop Anthony was so happy to be amongst all our Sussex Faithful. Eileen O’Connor brought a car-full from Shepherds Bush and Renee Peterson from Usk was already staying with Angela. The generous collection at Mass and the takings from the Grand Raffle which was held during the Buffet Lunch, were given to Angela (rather against her will) as an inadequate Thank You for all she does for the ArchConfraternity.


to learn more about the ArchConfraternity or would be prepared to assist in the establishment of a new Mission in their area, do please telephone Bishop Anthony on the number at the head of the Kalendar page. The answer phone will cut in, but do please leave your details and we will contact you. Or e-mail.  Thank you.  This is how the Southport Mission started!!


to Father Leslie Saywell, Dame Patricia Earl-Williams and Mrs Marie Argyle for their great kindness last month in sending us most generous amounts of second class postage stamps. These Notes are sent to many people throughout Britain and Central & Eastern Bohemia who do not have internet access. Many thanks also to Mr. Gerald Wilson, Guardian of the Edinburgh Mission, for a recent, generous donation. We do rely on our benefactors and thank you sincerely. Holy Mass is offered monthly for you all.


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 continue to stress, 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 August. Do PLEASE send a September Offering for Saint Michael. 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.

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

There was Solemn Mass at Queenstown Road on Sunday, August 8th at Noon when 17 were present, including Ruth Seagle and three others from Holborn. The later advertised Battersea Mass will be Wednesday, August 25th at 7pm to which our students from three London Missions have promised to come. Thank you, dear Magda, for everything you do. The September Mass is on Thursday, 16th, Feast of Ss Cyprian and Cornelius, at 6pm.   Supper follows. (When doesn’t it? You won’t be hungry if you join the ArchConfraternity!!!)  By then Magda will have returned from a nice week in Sussex with Marie Todd at Worthing and Angela Ullathorne in Midhurst.


This is on Friday, September 24th and is a special day of Devotion for the Conversion of the entire world to the Reign of JESUS. For Mass times please, as ever, consult Clergy and Guardians. This day we combine our intentions with those of Our Lady of Hope at Milton Keynes and Father Emilio, its priest.  Pray please for the triumph of the Catholic Religion in Spain over the infidel. And beseech Our Lady of Ransom for the overthrow of all false creeds in England!     Solemn Mass that evening at 7pm at the Hampstead Oratory, followed by Rosary.




This falls on Tuesday, September 28th and is, of course, an Holyday of Obligation in the Czech Lands. It is also a National Holiday there. So far known is the Solemn Mass at Prague (Bila Hora) at Noon before which the congregation will gather to hear the Cathedral Bells and say the Rosary. [Father Zezulek]  Please consult Czech clergy. Solemn Mass, Hampstead at 7pm.
