Call by Bishop of Southwark

The Bishop of Southwark, addressing the Southwark Evidence Guild at its annual meeting on Sunday, said he wishes to sec far more priests on C.E.G. platforms.

Mgr. Cowderoy added that he intends to deal with this matter in a pastoral letter on the priesthood.

He urged too that members of religious orders should engage in this work, recalling that in many instances the primary reason for their foundation was the taking of the Gospel into the highways and byways.

Presenting the annual report, the Master, Mr. W. J. Fancily, stated that 340 outdoor meeting were conducted from 11 platforms in Brighton, Croydon and South London.

Outdoor missions to non-Catholics, each of eight days' duration, were given at Brighton and Earlsfield.

Extensions are planned for 1950, but the speaking strength is small11 priests and 27 lay speakers-with the help of six more priests who speak occasionally.
