80,000 IN PERPETUAL SUCCOUR CONFRATERNITY

Keywords: O'reilly

On Sunday last, marking the thirtieth anniversary of his first Mass, Canon Reginald O'Reilly, D.D., for some twenty years rector of St. Peter's, Birmingham. was honoured by a large gathering over which Mr. Frank Wain, K.C.S.G., presided in the schools. On behalf of many societies, of which he is chaplain, friends subscribed to a cheque of £356, and a spiritual bouquet contained in an illuminated address. The presentation was made by a little Child of Miry of the parish; following a series of eulogies made by Fr. Hodgson, who succeeds Canon O'Reilly as rector, by Professor T. Bodkin, by Sir Patrick Hannon and by Mr. Ralph Bland.

In voicing his thanks, Canon O'Reilly spoke of the joy that had been given him in erecting the shrine and Confraternity of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour at St. Peter's, and he hoped that it would be for ever preserved by those who realised the efficacy of prayer and, devetion.

Members of the Confraternity now number 80,000.
