From. Our Own Correspondent
Last Sunday, January 28, was observed In the Diocese of Hercharri and Newcastle as Press Sunday.
Because of the Arctic conditions outdoor arrangements had to be abandoned and in most parishes the observance was confined to expressions of gratitude from the pulpit to the workers who carried the Catholic Press to the parishioners. The S.V.P., Legion of Mary, Apostles of the Preset and boys' dubs have done yeoman service.
MONASTERY NEWSAGENCY At a Wearside monastery a section of the cloisters was set out as a miniature newsagency, and our correspondent was shown the efficiency of organisation, which was complete even to the possesion of " newebags " for the workers.
At one Tyneside church at least the parish priest personally supervised the sale of Catholic newspapers.
The arrangement Was by expressed wish of Mgr. Joseph McCormack, Bishop of Hexharn and Newcastle, and was supervised by a committee representative of the Catholic weeklies and the various Catholic societies.
