At the annual meeting and quarterly conference of the Birmingham North District Council of the C.Y.M.S., held last Sunday at St. Augustine's, Handsworth, the Rev. Joseph Boland, Chaplain, and Rector of St. Augustine's, said he thought they must consider whether, having carried on during the first year of the war, they could not push forward during the coming year, within the parochial councils. There would be many pressing social problems to be faced after the war, and Catholic men should be ready to face them. So far as brothers of the C.Y.M.S. and other Catholic men in the Forces were concerned, it was not Sufficient just to send them cigarettes and comforts; why not try and keep the corporate monthly Holy Communion and the daily Mass crusade up to full strength and offer them particularly for the men of the parish on active service who were denied facilities for attending Sunday Mass and Sacraments?— there were many such, even in this country. Here was a way of obtaining for them the special graces they needed at such a time. Fr. Boland also pleaded for a more enthusiastic attendance at meetings and recommended the brothers to " keep an eye " on the Young Christian Workers' movement, which was doing such a valuable work among youths and young men, who should be got into ttie C.Y.M.S.
