Carols In Trafalgar Square But No Crib

Once again a party of Catholic carol singers have been given permission by the Ministry of Works to sing beneath the great Christmas tree from Norway, in London's Trafalgar Square. On the night of Friday, December 23. the singers will gather under the fairy lights and Christmas greenery and for two or three hours will give a concert of carols old and new. It is very regrettable that the Ministry of Works have thought fit to ban the standing of the Crib in the Square, and it is hoped that a reverse decision will be forthcoming before the date of the concert. Reason

given for the ban was that letters were received by the Ministry last year expressing disapproval. The singers hope to raise a large sum for the Crusade of Rescue--in fact they hope to beat last year's grand total of £265. which was the result of the efforts of the Kyrie Chill, St. Francis' Ramblers. The Grail, etc.. and many others.

All Catholics who would like to take part in this year's Carol singing are invited to attend rehearsals at the Sodality Hall, 114 'Mount Street, W.1, each Wednesday at 7.30 p.m.
