Listowel, Wednesday.—This beautiful and edifying form of devotion was opened today in the exquisite chapel of the Presentation Convent in this town. The Rev. A. Moynhan acted as celebrant at the solemn High Mass, assisted by Fathers Crimin and Gooly as deacons, while Father Foraun acted as master of ceremonies. There was a large number of the clergy and laity of the district present. After High Mass a procession of the clergy, members of the Confraternity, the nuns and children of the schools marched around the Convent gardens. There was a new feature observable in the procession, this time, in the shape of exquisite banners, with sacred mottoes, while the music and singing were more than usually impressive and effective. The decorations of the chapel, as well as the order of the procession, reflected the highest credit on those who had charge of the arrangements.—Correspondent.

PADIHAM : PRESENTATION TO FATHER DALY.—Father Mortimer Daly, assistant priest at St. John’s, Padiham, was presented with a gold watch on the 17th inst., by the Men’s Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament, of which he is the director. The presentation, which, besides being a recognition of what Father Daly has done for the men and boys of the parish since his advent among them, was also intended to mark his recent birthday, took place in the schoolroom. Father A. M. Van Tomme, in making the presentation, paid tribute to the work which Father Daly had accomplished for the social and spiritual welfare of the men and boys. He wished Father Daly many happy years to continue the good work he was doing at St. John’s. Father Daly said, though the watch was valuable to him, still more valuable were the good will and kindly feelings of the parishioners.
