45 WILL BE ORDAINED AT WESTMINSTER Momentous Day for Missions

On Saturday, July 9, at 8 a.m., in Westminster Cathedral, there begins the biggest ordination of missionaries ever held in this country.

Forty-five students of St. Joseph's College for Foreign Missions, Mill Hill, are to be ordained by the Cardinal. At present they are taking part in a retreat under the direction of Mgr. Goodier.

On the day after ordination they will receive notice of their appointments. Twenty are going to East, Central, and West Africa, and the others are going to Borneo, to the Philippines, to India and to the Maoris of New Zealand.

Since the foundation of St. Joseph's Society for Foreign Missions by Cardinal Vaughan, the number of its members has increased steadily to over 600 at the present day.

Saturday will be a momentous day in its existence; and indeed in the whole Catholic life of England.

After the long ceremony, which will last between three and four hours, the Cardinal will leave by the four o'clock train from Victoria for the opening of Rheims Cathedral.
