Lancaster Jubilee

Preparations for the celebration next month of the 50th anniversary of the formation of Lancaster diocese are being made by a committee headed by Mgr S. Monaghan, the s Vicar-General.

The Lancashire Record Office is mounting a large Golden Jubilee Exhibition to be shown at the Harris Library in Preston, of many records and exhibits of all kinds.

These constitute (according to the Lancashire County archivist, Mr Sharpe France) the most extensive records of any in the country outside the great repositories such as that at Westminster. Fr Leo Harrison is representing the diocese in arranging the exhibition. There is to be a Concelebrated Mass of Thanksgiving in the Guild Hall, Preston, and a CapituIar Mass in the Cathedral on Sunday, September 29, followed by z buffet banquet.

Mgr B. O'Neill is bringing out a substantial brochure describing the 50-year history of the diocese. A spokesman said: "The diocese is proud of the fact that it has during its existence been able, more than any other, to contribute priests to national work, to work in other dioceses at home and abroad, and generally has been exceptional in its number of vocations to the priesthood and religiOus life."
