Archbishop Amigo and the Children

The evacuation of so many schools to safer areas, the danger from bombing raids and the very ad destruceon of St. George's Cathedral were all mentioned by Archbishop Aenigo as reasons which had, to his great sorrow, prevented until this year the holding of the usual Good Shepherd service. Children from many of the South London schools presented to His Grace the money collected in the schools during Lent for the orphans and destitute children. Fr. Healy, the secretary of the Southwark Catholic Rescue Society, told the children that ee felt that it woukl be too much to hope that last year's record of £3,344 could be equalled this year, but he did know that throughout the diocese in very difficult times the children and teachers had worked enthusiastically to make the collection a success.

The children presented to the Archbishop £1,124, and as £1,154 had already been received by post, the total so far received is £2.278.
