St. Mary's, Newport, C.Y.M.S. on Sunday honoured two of its members who had become priests at the Catholic Institute, when the president of the branch, Councilor W. F. E. Smith, who is Mayor of Newport, presented cheques subscribed by the members to Fr. Thomas Lenane, Inst. Ch.. and Fr. Sydney Stanley of the White Fathers.

Fr. Denis Honan, Inst. Ch., Chaplain, presided.

The Mayor referred to his membership of the society, which had indirectly led to Fr. Lenane embracing the priesthood. Upon Councillor Smith's return from his • studies at the Catholic Workers' College. Oxford, he organised a social study class under the auspices of the branch, which was attended by Bro. Lenane who took advantage of the means thus afforded of entering the college himself; during the time there he found his vocation.

In the coming struggle between the forces of paganism and the Catholic Church, he said, the branch might be proud of having given two priests to assist in the combat.
