100 Orders ready for Belle Vue

pRIESTS, brothers and nuns from more than 100 different orders and congregations from all over the world will take part in the Vocations' Exhibition at Manchester's Belle Vue for a week from May 31.

Several Bishops will be present, and Bishop Beck of Salford will ordain a student for the diocese before thousands of visitors.

Fr. Bernard MeClemon, chairman of the organising committee, said this week: "In this age of propaganda, Catholics should not be lagging behind.

"So much is done nowadays in propagating erroneous doctrines that we who possess the true faith should not be wanting in opportunities of telling the world of the work of the Church. 'Co ye and teach all nations .. .' The exhibition will be a tremendous visual aid in the salutary work of the Catholic Church.

"Girls and boys in their teens should be encouraged to go by their parents. They need to know the Church in the modern ,world exercising works of charity, teaching and doing missionary work."

Fr. McClernon writes in the "Harvest", a diocesan magazine, that children in the diocese are already being prepared for the exhibition by instruction at school. They will come in 'organised parties.

He traces the growth of the exhibition, which was started about 10 years ago in Blackburn with "only a few orders of nuns." And he says that there are many results— vocations, strengthening of faith among Catholics and a return to the Faith by many lapsed Catholics.
