BISHOP AT MAYORAL MASS A Benefit for Borough

When East Ham's Catholic Mayor, Alderman E. F. Markey, J.P., attended High Mass with the Mayoress, Town Clerk, and other members of the Corporation at the Church of Our Lady of Compassion, Upton Park, last Sunday, the Bishop of Brentwood, Dr. Doubleday, presided and preached.

In the course of his sermon the Bishop said, "I cannot think but that the election of a Catholic must result in the highest benefit for the we/fare of the Borough of East Hams,"


Dr. Doubleday concluded, " We all watit lasting peace. How we are going to get it is not so certain. But if we all get together to work and to pray for our borough and our country peace will certainly oe brought nearer to many."

He gave his blessing to the Mayor. the Mayor of West Ham, Councillor C. A. Bennett (who was also present), and to the Knights of St. Columba, who formed a guard of honour.
