|Fr Patten's habit of calling his first issue of every year the 'Winter' number, together with the irregularity of publication, can cause confusion, and does so particularly in the years 1947-1948. The last 1946 edition is the Autumn Number, followed by Winter Number 1947, Spring/Summer Number 1947, Autumn and Winter Number 1947-8, Spring Number 1948, Summer Number 1948, Autumn Number 1948, Winter & Spring Number 1949.|
The work at Walsingham increases each year and has become so exacting that it is impossible for two priests to cope with it. We are still waiting for God to move suitable priests, and for them to answer the call to give their lives to the work of rebuilding the ancient Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham.
The Whit-Monday Pilgrimage – This seems to be assuming importance as an annual event. Coaches can be booked to start from Churches in the London area by writing to the Shrine Office. The cost is £1.1s. per person if a 32-seater bus is taken. Why not organise a contingent from your parish? If you live in the provinces it will be necessary for you to charter a bus from some local firm; all you then need is a pilgrimage badge (price 1/6) for each pilgrim. A buffet lunch will be provide for those who book beforehand, at 2/- each, and tea at 1/3. The preacher is to be Father Colin Gill, of St. Martin’s, Brighton.
We are pleased to tell our readers that the Orthodox Chapel has a resident priest, Dr. Najdanovich, who is now living in Walsingham. Dr Najdanovich is a Serb who is in exile from his country for religious reasons. At various times the strains of the Orthodox Liturgy intermingle with the singing of the College Chapter Mass. We ask our readers to pray that God will bless Dr. Najdanovich’s ministry here, and that those of the Orthodox faith who are exiles in this country may come to know our Lady under her ancient title of Walsingham.
