Lieut.-Colonel the Rev. T. J. McCarthy, recently returned to Canada from England, where he organised the Canadian Catholic chaplain service. He is now to resume his pastorate in Ontario.
Now 50 years old, Fr. McCarthy is a noted Canadian chaplain of the World War. He enlisted as chaplain of the famous "Princess Pat's--the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry—with the rank of captain. The Military Cross was awarded to him for conspicuous bravery at Passchendaele, and at the end of the war he was demobilised with the rank of major.
" The people of the British Isles," Fr. McCarthy said on his return, " are worshipping God in all sorts of buildings. And right here I want to mention the brave servants of God who are ministering to the spiritual needs of our fighting men overseas. The chaplains are rendering an excellent service, and everybody has the same privilege of practicing his religion as he did in his borne town and home church, because every Canadian unit has its own chaplain, and no matter how small that unit may be it 'is under the jurisdiction of a faithful chaplain,"
