The ideal of Hinsley House, the memorial to the late Caidinal, was described by the Archbishop of Westminster in a sermon last Sunday in the following terms: " It is to be a centre where his name will ever remain: and it is to be a centre of information where we can give information, where we can collect information from other countries and from other Catholic • centres, where people coming over to this country from abroad can meet and exchange views and discuss mutual problems.
" I have realised • several limes since T came here how handicapped we have been through noehaving such a centre. If, for instance, we had had some representation between the Catholics of this country and Switzerland we could really have done a magnificent work during the war. If we had had some organisation joined up with other organisations, say, in France, Belgium, Holland, there is no knowing what great work could have been done."
In his sermon Mgr. Griffin gave a moving account of the life and character of the late Cardinal saying " that Cardinal Hinsley did more for the people and the ,Church in this country than any living Churchman since the time of the Reformation."
Of the E25.000 needed to establish' the memorial, £14,250 has already been oollected. There are fifty-nine founder members.
