Arising out of the Huddersfiejd United Christian Front meeting of March 20, when a resolution urging the setting up of a United Christian Council, which should be " referred to the denominations concerned." was adopted without a dissentient, the fast meeting of the new body has been called for Friday, May 9.
The three parties concerned— Catholic. Anglican and Free Church—have each appointed 12 representatives for service on the U.C.C. The Catholic members will be led by the Rev. James Grogan, rector of St. Patrick's. accompanied by the Rev. D McGillicuddy, of St. Joseph's, and the Rev. F. Woods. of St. Brigid's. The remaining nine members are fairly representative of local Catholic laity. .
Recommendations to be dealt with at this initial meeting will include the appointment of a president and two vice-presidents, offices which will be occupied by a member from each party ; and a joint secretaryship on similar lines is also planned.
