IN his evaluation of Billy Graham's continuing mission to this

country last week, Fr John Medcalf bemoaned the fact that the Catholic bishops of England and Wales had not publicly endorsed the venture along with other church leaders.

We would like to point out that Cardinal Basil Hume has held full and friendly discussions with Dr Graham during his visit, and that Bishop Charles Henderson, auxiliary in Southwark, has been co-ordinating Catholic involvement in Mission '89. On March 3, the archdiocese of Westminster issued a statement urging "prayer and cooperation" with Mission '89.

However, that statement was not widely disseminated to the media at the request of the Mission '89 organisers. They were concerned following threats to Dr Graham's safely from extremist Protestant evangelical fundamentalists, issued principally because of Roman Catholic involvement with Mission '89.

We apologise to the bishops' conference for any misunderstanding in this matter.
