RECRUITING FOR LATIN AMERICA

FR. THOMAS WALSH, founder of the Crusade of the Holy Spirit, an Order which supplies priests to the most needy areas of the Church in Latin America, arrived in London this week to recruit priests and seminarists to help him in his work. He has the backing of Cardinal Heenan and Archbishop Cowderoy.

On a similar visit last year Fr. Walsh recruited several seminarists and two priests, including Fr. Francis Duffy, for many years parish priest of St. Joan of Arc, Bootle. Volunteers for the mission go first to the Order's house in Salamanca, Spain, attending the nearby Theological Institute and Pontifical University and learning Spanish.

Fr. Walsh, who was formerly a priest of the Diocese of San Diego, California, was released by his bishop to do this work. "Today," he says, "the most needy area of the Church is Latin America where there are thirty per cent of the world's Catholics and only nine per cent of the world's priests."

During July Fr. Walsh will be staying at St. Gerard's Church, 166 Boundary Street, Liverpool 5.
