Clergy in Schools
If the shortage of pastoral clergy is as serious as we are told it is, why are secular clergy withdrawn from pastoral work to teach in schools?T. P. MULLINS, 55 Hacton Drive, Horrichurch, Essex.
The secular clergy only teach in a few diocesan secondary schools where fees are relatively low. Such fees could not be Maintained if the staff were all lay.Editor, Csatione Hearten.
We are now using the enclosed Family Consecration form to propagate devotion to The Immaculate Heart of Mary in accordance with the wishes of Our Lady of Fatima.
In our spare time we make the necessary frames so that when we visit a house it is possible to write the names of those members of the family on the form. who promise to do what is asked. The form is then inserted in the frame and hung on the wall of the living room before we leave. We also use other leaflets to further the cause.
Should any other society or group' wish to take part in this work, the forms and leaflets are available on application at a nominal charge.THE APOSTOLATF. OF FATIMA, M. CaArrosi, "Villa Formoso," 18 Crown Terrace. Scarborough.
