by the time this is published the great National Pilgrimage at Whitsun

Depicted in a medallion to the right of Our Lady and Holy Child is the Shrine Church built under Father Hope Patten's direction. To the left is a medallion of the Holy Well. Beneath are two other windows, memorials to departed members of this Parish; one of St Augustine of Hippo, the Patron of this Parish and also the Patron of the College of St Augustine of which Father Hope Patten was Superior for several years. The other window is of St Monica, the Mother of St Augustine. The windows also depict Augustine as a youth stealing pears, symbolising the evil life from which his Mother's prayers and the Grace of God saved him; and the Baptism of St Augustine by St Ambrose of Milan.
We think the picture and this information might be of interest to English readers, showing that the life, work and devotion of Father Hope Patten will not be forgotten ont this side of the Atlantic.

at which blessing water from the Holy Well at Walsingham will be used.
