SIR,-May 1, through the courtesy of your columns, appeal to your readers to help
the work of the Church in South Africa.
The Archbishop of Durban, the Most Rev. Denis Hurley, 0.M.I., D.D., has recently stressed the fact that, due to the policy of "apartheid", all financial aid to Catholic mission schools has been stopped. The Oblate missionaries in this Archdiocese are, of course, continuing their valiant work among the Zulu people over 11,000 children attend their schools. The priests are assisted by Zulu lay teachers, who are now receiving less than half of their former salaries.
If any of your readers could possibly spare ten shillings. one pound, or two pounds 1 feel certain that such a gift would be deeply appreciated. Donations should be addressed to: The Most Reverend Denis E. Hurley, 0.M.1., Catholic Cathedral, Cathedral Road. Durban, South Africa.
For those who would care to enclose a Mass intention with their gift Masses will be offered for the benefactors of the missions at the Shrine of the Madonna of the Zulus commencing on the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, August 15, 1961.
213 Abbey Hey Lane, Gorton,
Having recently been in touch with the Archbishop. we can most heartily recommend this appeal to all our readers.-DrIOR, "
