What The Bishops Did Next
Many were out in parishes which were celebrating jubilees, a couple were going away on diocesan or society pilgrimages, the Bishop of the Forces was away doing military things, Bishop Conry was at a CAFOD residential weekend, and quite a few had no engagements listed, which probably means that they said Mass in their Cathedrals. Bishop Budd doesn't seem to send his engagements in any more, and Bishop Lang wasn't listed this week.
I was struck by Archbishop Smith, who could leave Southwark for the day to preach at the service of the annual meeting of the Christian Socialist Movement at Manchester's Anglican Cathedral.
Archbishop Nichols issued a clarion call to the faithful of Westminster. The Archbishop of Birmingham and the Bishop of Menevia offered Masses of Thanksgiving for the visit.
Next week it will filter down to parish level.
