Evensong of the Octave of the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels
From the House of the Sacred Mission,
FOUNDED in 1890 by the Rev. H. H. Kelly , who was its first director and is still on the staff at Kelham, the Society of the Sacred Mission (now directed by the Rev Reginald H. Tribe , M.C.) is a brotherhood of priests and laymen of the Church of England who spend their lives under the vows of poverty, celibacy and obedience. Its first and chief work is the training of men for the Ministry, and, since its first small beginnings in a house in Brixton, this work has developed until the Society has now become the largest Theological College in the Church of England. The supply of candidates is practically unlimited and, though the strictest selection is exercised, there are now some 130 students in training, and it is hoped to increase the College to 300. As, however, candidates are selected solely on the grounds of their qualifications, apart from their financial position, and the students are drawn from every class, from pit boys to University graduates, the cost of maintaining tho majority of them falls upon the resources of the Society, and necessarily limits the work. A large chapel is now being built, specially suited to the plain-chant singing in which all members of the Community take part, and it is expected that this will, when it is finished, be recognized as one of the most striking modern buildings in the country.

Appeal on behalf of the Stepney Infant Welfare Centre by the Rt. Hon. Sir WILLIAM JOYNSON-HICKS, Bart., M.P.
THIS Infant Welfare Centre, which was the second to be founded in London, includes a nursing home with beds for nine babies, a dental clinic for mothers, and an ultra-violet ray clinic. During the past twelve months it has dealt with 4,500 cases, and, although half the running expenses are paid by the Ministry of Health, the Centre is in urgent need of funds to enable it to carry on its work.
Contributions should be sent to [address removed]
