CARE COMMITTEE SIR, — There must be in London to-day

many hundreds of Catholic men and women who would like to undertake some form of practical Catholic Action. I have often, after meetings or discussions, heard the remark, " I should love to do something, but I can only spare one evening (or a few hours or an afternoon) a week ! It is primarily to these Catholics that this appeal is addressed, for I believe that in Care Committee work there exists an outlet for their energies which will prove tremendously rewarding and which represents a most creative form of Catholic Action. For Care Committee work has as its aim the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of children.

Care Committee work is undertaken by voluntary workers under the direction of the London County Council, and for Catholics there exists a Catholic Care Committee Workers' Association. Training for voluntary part-time workers is provided by the paid organisers of the L.C.C., and it should be emphasised that any time devoted to the work is valuable and acceptable provided it is regular. There are three chief categories of work—medical care, general care and the following up of the work done in the school by After Care, through which contact is maintained with the children during their first years at work.

I do, therefore, most earnestly appeal to all Catholics who have time to devote to the service of their Lord, Who loved little children and would not have them turned away, to consider whether Catholic Care Committee work is not the form of Catholic Action for which they have

been looking. Offers of help will be most gratefully received by Mrs. Fitzgerald, C.C.C.W.A., The Convent, Carlisle Place, London, S.W.1.

It is my most earnest hope that this appeal will not go unanswered.


Brettenharri House, 15 Lancaster Place, London, W.C.2.
