SIR,—We should like to draw the attention of all Catholic nurses in this country to the existence of the Catholic Nurses' Guild of England and Wales. and to urge them all to belong to it.
This Guild exists to cater for the spiritual, professional and social needs of nurses, and to help them with the moral problems which they meet in their work. It is essential that it should be strong if it is to achieve its object, and every Catholic nurse should join. There arc at least 25,000 Catholic nurses in this country, but less than one tenth of that number belong to the Guild. What a pity that all our Catholic nurses do not value the good work that is being done for them by this Guild. Catholic nurses we urge you all to throw off this apathy and do something positive for Christ today, by writing for details of membership to: The Secretary, Catholic Nurses' Guild of England ad Wales, Bevendean Hospital, Brighton 7, Sussex.
+George L. Craven Bishop of Sebastopolis, Ecclesiastical Adviser to the Catholic Nurses' Guild.
North Cassidy National President.
John A. Byrne National Chaplain.
