Father C. C. Martindale, S.J., and Dom Bernard McElligott, 0.S.B., are teaming together for the first time on Saturday, February 18, to give a week-end course on the Liturgy and the People. The course is to take place at the Convent of the Sacred Heart, 212, Hammersmith Road, W.6.
Fr. McElligott has just returned from Liverpool; he has been giving a Liturgical Mission for the Seel Street parish, which is run by Ampleforth Benedictines.
Fr. MeElligott is himself an Ampleforth monk. For many years he was choirmaster at Ampleforth where he was educated.
