Ampleforth boys in Russia

APARTY of boys from Ampleforth College, 45 strong, left on Tuesday on an Easter pilgrimage to Russia, with three Benedictine monks who teach at the school and 13 parents.

Dom Noel Barry, the headmaster, said last week that the school had arranged many visits abroad, but this was the first to Russia. Today they were to visit the great Abbey of Zigorsk, outside Moscow, and offer prayers for the reunion of East and West at the tomb of St. Sergius, the abbey's founder.

Tomorrow they fly to Leningrad where, at the invitation of Metropolitan Nikodim, they will assist at the Easter Vigil in the cathedral. They are taking a letter to him from Cardinal Heenan.

The number of Catholics in the Greater New York area increased last year by 182,573, to 7,325,916, according to figures published in the Catholic News. There were 126 more priests, at 7,102; an increase of 185 Brothers, at 2,920, and 1,002 more Sisters, at 23,961.

A united service for Catholics, Anglicans and members of the Free Churches is being held today in Westminster Cathedral. Cardinal Heenan, Dr. Stopford, the Bishop of London, and Dr. M. Barnett of the Methodist Church will take part and a Salvation Army band will accompany the singing.
