RANSOM NOTES

I met a priest the other day who, with some friends, had gone on a cycling tour through Wales, One evening theaasaw, by a little path from the country road they were on, a notice: " To the Catholic Church."

So they dismounted and went up the path to find the church. All they could see was a statue of Christ the King and a little old house; a woman corning by asked what they were looking for. and being told, said, " Oh, there is no church, but this is where the priest lives. and if you go round to the back and up the steps there, you will find our chapel on the top floor."

Doing as directed they found that three bedrooms had been converted into a tiny chapel, and they found also the priest.

He told them that his parish was 400 square miles in extent, that he goes two miles to a small town to say Mass on Sundays in a cold and comfortless ham for a small body of Catholics, besides ministering to the handful who came to the chapel in his house. He has secured a site for a church in the small town and lacks the funds necessary to build.

My friend, whose parish is in a town. had his interest aroused in our church extension work by this experience.

Consequently, I strongly recommend all oty readers who live in a town to lake their holidays cycling in the country of England and Wales, so that they may see for themselves the need for ttte Million Pound Fund.
