ANGLICAN BENEDICTINES HEAR OF ST. THOMAS'S IDEA OF THE CHURCH To a crowded meeting of the Aquinas Society, at which members of the Anglican Benedictine community of Nashdom were present, Pere M-J. Conger, 0.P., on Tuesday, April 11, lectured in English on " The Idea of the Church in St. Thomas."

St. Thomas, said Pere Conger, conceives of the Church before all else as a body living by a divine life, whose soul is the Holy Ghost.

This divine life is that of the theological virtues.

The ecclesiology of St. Thomas is deeply Christological, but St. Thomas gives an immense role also the institutional elements of the visible Church. He conceives of the Church in her visible phase (1) as the very mode of existence of the Mystical Body and of the new life in Christ; and (2) as a great Sacrament or ministry of salvation obtained by all humanity in Christ Crucified.

C.Y.M.S., North Watford


The St. Helen's Catholic Young Men's Society (North Watford) held their second annual dinner and dance on Saturday last. Among those present were Bro. E. G. Richards (president), the Rev. C. Walsh (chaplain), the Rev. C. Mercer, S.D.S. (chaplain, Abbots Langley branch), Bro. Ralph Manners (secretary, Westminster Archdiocesan Council), Bro. R. K. FitzPatrick (president, North West District Council), together with about 70 members and friends.

The President of the branch gave a résumé of the work during the course of the past year.

He referred to the study circle which had been set up, and also to the prominent part the branch had taken in the First Pilgrimage to the Birthplace of Pope Adrian IV, Nicholas Breakspear, at Abbots Langley.

He referred also to the increasing number of boys who, after leaving school, gave up their practice of religion. To assist in solving this problem, a Junior Section of the Society was being established. The President also expressed his thanks to Fr. Walsh for his spiritual assistance, and to members of the Council for their loyal co-operation.
