Cardinal IIinsley, Archbishop of Westminster, was present at the celebrations held on Sunday last, July 9, at the church of St. Mary, Everingliam, Yorks, the ancestral home of the great Catholic family, of Constable-Maxwell.

On that day the present church celebrated the centenary of its opening In 1839, ten years only after Catholic Emancipation, Mgr. Thomas Shine, Bishop of Middlesbrough, celebrated the Mass of Thanksgiving corane cardinali.

Everingham has been a Catholic centre in unbroken succession from the reign of Edward VI to the present day. The church which celebrated its centenary was he gift of William ConstableMaxwell (Lord Herries), and his wife.

The Cardinal said: " A last word in tribute to the Lord

Henries who built this church. His memory demands our prayers, which may not be needed by him, but might be offered to him that he may intercede for us in these days so critical and uncertain.

"He died in 1876. A note he left reveals the depth of his faith and of his love of Our Lord and Saviour. 'I do not wish a coronet on my coffin,' he wrote, ' but, if not thought presumptuous, I would like a crown of thorns."

In the afternoon the Duchess invited the tenants and parishioners to the Hall to meet the Cardinal and the Bishop of Middlesbrough. In the evening Bishop Shine presided at Solemn Vespers, and the Cardinal gave Benediction.
