Popular priest confessed to child abuse before he died
BY ED WEST
THE ROSMINIAN order is facing a multi-million-pound lawsuit after four of its priests admitted to sexual and physical abuse of boys while running two schools in the 1960s.
Among them was Fr Christopher Cunningham, the popular rector of St Etheldreda’s in Holborn, London, who died last December aged 79.
Fr Cunningham, who taught at St Michael’s school, in Soni, Tanzania, in the 1960s, is alleged to have sexually abused six boys as young as eight, alongside three other priests from the order, officially known as the Institute of Charity: Fr Bernard Collins, Fr Douglas Raynor and Fr William Jackson. All confessed to abuse in signed letters witnessed by the Rosminian provincial Fr David Myers. Fr Collins and Fr Raynor also physically abused the children, who described them as “sadists”.
The victims spoke out in a BBC documentary, Abuse: Breaking the Silence, broadcast on Tuesday.
The 22 men who have taken legal action also include 11 former pupils of the Rosminian-run Grace Dieu Manor prep school in Leicestershire.
Fr Collins had worked at Grace Dieu where he sexually abused nineyear-old Donald MacFaul. When Mr MacFaul’s father raised a complaint with the school, he was told that Fr Collins would not return after the holidays. Instead, he remained for another term and was then transferred to St Michael’s in Soni.
Mr MacFaul, now a barrister in Newcastle, said that until 2009 and the revelations from Soni he had assumed that Fr Collins had been sent away from children. He said: “I found that to be appalling. That was quite distressing. Essentially they harboured this nest of vipers.”
Francis Lionnet, a former Grace Dieu pupil, recalled that Fr Collins used to whip and on some occasions fire a rifle at boys. He said: “I have spoken to men in their 50s and 60s who have broken down in tears talking about what happened. There have been suicides linked to these schools.”
Mr Lionnet added that just one former pupil from either school was still a Mass-going Catholic.
Martin Marriott, who was sexually abused by Fr Cunningham, said it “troubled me all my life” and that, like many pupils, he was “furious” that Fr Cunningham had received an MBE.
“It was difficult to describe the feelings of fear at the school. There was no one to turn to, even our parents didn’t believe us because they thought priests were good.
“We were absolutely furious that Collins had been transferred. When he arrived at Soni he found kindred spirits but he had a very strong intellect, very dominant. The masters were as terrified of him as we were.”
The allegations became public after a group of former Soni pupils met via a website forum. It quickly transpired that, on top of the violence in the school, sexual abuse had been widespread too.
In September 2009 they approached Fr Myers with the dossier of claims relating to the two schools and in November were invited to St Etheldreda’s, where Fr Cunningham had been rector for almost 30 years.
Fr Myers contacted the four priests, who all admitted to abuse and wrote letters to some of their victims. Fr Rayner, now 92, admitted to using excessive force and to groping pupils, and accepted that he would have to leave his current parish. Fr Cunningham wrote to John Poppleton, now 53, to say: “It is with deep shame that I write to you to ask forgiveness for inappropriate actions that I did to you. It has been on my conscience ever since and the thought of what I did has often preyed on my mind these last 40 years.”
Fr Cunningham was a high-profile and popular figure in London, often called the unofficial chaplain of Fleet Street, as well as being the founder of the Westminster diocesan newspaper and chaplain of the Catholic Writers Guild. He wrote regularly for The Catholic Herald. He also worked as a prison chaplain and was active in helping the homeless.
Fr David Myers, head of the Rosminians in Britain, said: “I apologise without reservation on behalf of the Rosminian brethren in the UK to all those who have suffered. Such abuse was a grievous breach of trust to them and to their families. We are appalled by what was done to them.
“I and all my brethren are deeply shocked at what has happened and acknowledge our inadequate response. We are committed to the pastoral care and support of those who have suffered abuse and to the procedures laid down by the National Catholic Safeguarding Commission.” Mary Kenny: Page 12 Editorial Comment: Page 13
Archbishop Nichols views relics on show at the British Museum
Archbishop commends new relics exhibition to Catholics
BY DAVID V BARRETT
ALL BRITISH Catholics should try to visit the new exhibition of relics and reliquaries at the British Museum in London, Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster has said.
Treasures of Heaven: saints, relics and devotion in medieval Europe opened in the historic Round Reading Room at the museum on Thursday.
“I think this is a very, very unique and remarkable exhibition. There are objects here, for example the Mandylion, the face of Christ, which will never leave the Vatican again,” the archbishop said.
“I would just urge Catholics in England and Wales and from further afield to make the effort to come to the British Museum some time between now and October to take up this very unique opportunity. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime, and it’s well worth the journey.”
Many of the reliquaries – richly inlaid gold crosses and caskets – date from the 11th to 13th centuries, but some go back as early as the fourth and f i f th centuries.
Most are of saints, but a few relate to Jesus himself. Included in the exhibition are three separate thorns from the Crown of Thorns, a fragment of the True Cross, breast milk from the Virgin Mary and the Mandylion of Edessa, a cloth supposedly laid over the face of Jesus and bearing his image.
The importance of these relics lies in their spiritual and emotive power rather than whether they are historically genuine, Archbishop Nichols said.
“It’s perfectly clear that relics are a very important part of the expression of religious faith as well as of cultural importance in the way that people cling to a souvenir from a person they’ve loved or a place that they’ve been to. And what that conveys is the connecting of this moment with the treasured moment of the past. And if that connection is made through an object which maybe forensically won’t stand up to the test, that’s of secondary importance to the spiritual and emotive power that the object can contain, and does contain.
“I think that’s where the setting of the relic is as eloquent as the relic itself. If you look at a lot of these reliquaries you don’t actually see the relic. The relic is, as it were, at the end of an inner journey. So what they’re looking for is the viewer to really enter their own soul to understand how they enter into the value of the treasure of the relic that is before them.
“So it’s a spiritual dialogue that takes place between this object and the person themself.
“That’s why they’re called ‘Treasures of Heaven’, because it is through the spiritual that our hearts are raised to heaven.”
Preparation for the exhibition began in December 2008 following earlier discussions with the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore.
“It’s been three years solid in the making,” said James Robinson, the exhibition’s curator. “It was a major achievement to get all of these objects here. Most of these objects have such significance in the institutions that they’re from that it’s very difficult to negotiate their loan.”
He said he was most proud of exhibiting the reliquary of the early 12th century True Cross from Zwiefalten in Germany.
“It has a provenance which goes right back to the First Crusade, so we’re fairly secure that that was collected in Jerusalem from the relic that was believed to have been discovered by St Helena.
“So it’s a really strong connection to that very early relic-collecting period of the fourth century.”
The exhibition runs from June 23 to October 9 and admission is £12. The British Museum will also be holding talks, films and workshops linked to the exhibition.

Brewery defends decision to give pub a new name Equality chief: Christians are the most militant
BY MADELEINE TEAHAN
THE OWNERS of the pub favoured by visitors to Westminster Catholic cathedral parishioners, The Cardinal, have defended their decision to change the establishment’s name.
They said the original name was not The Cardinal and that the land on which the pub was built does not belong to the Catholic Church.
In a letter published on the Independent Catholic News website Mark Butler, the company secretary to Samuel Smith’s brewery, said that much research and thought had been invested in the decision to change the pub’s name to The Windsor Castle.
Mr Butler explained that the pub’s name was originally The Windsor Castle but was changed to The Cardinal in 1963, on the recommendation by the landlord because of its newly refurbished scarlet decor.
“We studied the plans and old leases for the property and the land has never belonged to the Roman Catholic Church and, contrary to popular opinion, it would seem has never had any connection with Cardinal Manning who, because of his hate of alcohol and the evils of it, protested against the opening of public houses in the 19th century,” wrote Mr Butler.
The letter goes on to say that “the pub was rebuilt as the Windsor Castle in 1897 and in our current refurbishment we have restored the interior based on the physical evidence of the original layout and structure which was revealed on site following the stripping out of the premises and on the plans in the 1897 building lease”.
The letter added that the owners hope that their scheme will be viewed as “a careful and sensitive restoration of the pub’s Victorian splendour. It was on this basis that we felt it only appropriate to return the pub to its historic name.”
The change of The Cardinal’s name has been a particularly sensitive topic for parishioners of Westminster Cathedral who frequent their local after Sunday Mass. So strong is the sense of ownership by local Catholics that the change in name has promoted a growing campaign with almost 200 Facebook supporters and public backing from Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster.
Dr Gemma Simmonds of Heythrop College, a supporter of the campaign, said she was “extremely unhappy” with the owners’ response. She said: “When many pubs are closing for lack of clients, the brewery might be interested in the feelings and opinions of the people who actually patronise their pub, and might support a collaborative approach to this question.”

CHRISTIANS are more militant and intolerant than Muslims, and hold beliefs more likely to “clash with mainstream views”, Trevor Phillips has said in a controversial interview.
The head of the £80 million-a-year Equality and Human Rights Commission said that Muslims were better at integrating into society, while Christians often claimed that they were treated in a a biased way for cynical political reasons.
Dismissing claims that recent equality laws discriminated against Christians, he said: “I think there’s an awful lot of noise about the Church being persecuted but there is a more real issue that the conventional churches face – that the people who are really driving their revival and success believe in an old-time religion which, in my view, is incompatible with a modern, multi-ethnic, multicultural society.
“Muslim communities in this country are doing their damnedest to come to terms with their neighbours to try to integrate and they’re doing their best to try to develop an idea of Islam that is compatible with living in a modern liberal democracy.”
He added: “The most likely victim of actual religious discrimination in
British society is a Muslim, but the person who is most likely to feel slighted because of their religion is an evangelical Christian. There are a lot of Christian activist voices who appear bent on stressing the kind of persecution that I don’t really think exists in this country.”
Mr Phillips said he understood why religious people felt under siege, and conceded that equality laws should “stop at the door of the church or mosque”.
But he also said that in return for religious people being protected by anti-discrimination laws, religious groups would have to fall in line with the views of a society as a whole.
He said: “Churches, mosques, temples, religious organisations of all kinds now have to some extent protection under the law but they also have to obey the law including anti-discrimination law because they are charities, because they offer a public service.”
He defended the Government’s decision to refuse Catholic adoption agencies an exemption on equality rules. He said: “Catholic Care was a clearer and simpler case. You’re offering a public service and you’re a charity and there are rules about how charities behave.” Charterhouse: Page 20

Bishop hails sectarianism Bill THE BISHOP of Motherwell has welcomed a new bill that would outlaw sectarian abuse in Scotland.
Bishop Joseph Devine issued a letter ahead of the passage of Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Bill in which he said that, although the bishops would have preferred to have time to examine the legislation, “we recognise, however, the importance of having the legislation in place prior to the start of the new football season. For no one wishes to see a repeat of the disgraceful scenes and sickening incidents of last season that shamed Scotland across the world.”
The bill is seen as a way of finally ridding Scottish football and society of sectarianism. Under the plans football fans could be jailed or fined for singing “God Save the Queen”, “Rule Britannia” or “aggressively” making the Sign of the Cross. Bishop Devine said: “Every Scot should get behind the Scottish government’s exemplary initiative.”
Catholic Care appeal refused CATHOLIC CARE, an adoption agency based in Leeds, has been refused permission to appeal against a ruling that it cannot exclude gay couples as potential adopters.
Alison McKenna, a charity tribunal judge, said she could not see any “errors of law” made in the ruling in April. If approved, the appeal would have been the charity’s fourth legal bid to challenge gay rights laws.
Mosque plan is rejected PLANS to redevelop a former Catholic school in Surrey into a mosque have have been rejected by a planning inspector.
The former St Gregory’s School in Camberley was closed in 1986 and bought by the Bengali Welfare Association, which has used it as a mosque since 1996.
But their plans to replace the listed building with a new domed mosque and minaret were rejected.
Monk denies child abuse charges A DOWNSIDE monk has pleaded not guilty to sex offences alleged to have taken place in the late 1980s. Richard White, 65, denied one count of indecently assaulting a boy under 14 and four counts of indecency against a child.

Conference cancelled following criticism of speakers
BY MARK GREAVES
A CATHOLIC conference was cancelled last week because of controversy over guest speakers who had been arranged after a senior Vatican cardinal pulled out.
The event, organised by the group Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice, was scheduled for Saturday but was cancelled by the Methodist conference centre only days beforehand.
At least one Catholic had phoned the Methodist Central Hall, Westminster, to raise concerns about speakers booked at the last minute following Cardinal Raymond Burke’s unexpected withdrawal.
One speaker, Robert Sungenis, a US Catholic apologist, has disputed the evidence that six million people died in the Holocaust. The other, Fr Paul Kramer, a retired priest based in London, has reportedly said that Vatican II liturgical reforms were part of a plot by Freemasons. He also appears to believe that the Third Secret of Fatima was suppressed by the Vatican.
Daphne McLeod, chairman of Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice, said both speakers had promised they would not touch on anything controversial.
She said after the cancellation of Cardinal Burke she had “rang round frantically for several days” until Fr Kramer and Mr Sungenis
Archbishop Stack is installed in Cardiff agreed to fill in. She said: “I explained to both at some length that we are not a pressure organisation in any sense – we only aim to get children taught the faith more effectively. None of the dozens of talks given at our [Methodist] Central Hall conferences over the last 15 years have been in the least controversial.”
She said Mr Sungenis was going to talk about Christ’s life in the New Testament and Fr Kramer was to address the message of Our Lady at Fatima – “but not pushing the Third Secret”.
She explained that she went to Methodist Central Hall on Saturday to explain what had happened to 20
or so people who had not heard about the cancellation. Several hundred people were expected to attend the conference, an annual event since the 1990s.
Mrs McLeod is likely to lose about £3,000 in advertising, printing and postage costs, but not the £4,000 booking fee, which the centre will refund in full.
Methodist ministers said the conference was cancelled because they could not ensure that it “would be in accord with Methodist and mainstream Catholic teaching”.
The Rev Tim Swindell, executive chairman of the centre, said: “It is a Methodist church as well as a conference centre, so while we try to be generous in terms of the events we hold, nevertheless we need to maintain propriety and [ensure] nothing is preached that we may be concerned about.”
Meanwhile, the Rev Martin Turner, superintendent minister, said he made the decision to cancel the booking despite “a considerable loss of income” to the centre.
He wrote in an email: “When this booking came in I made inquiries – the then main speaker was a cardinal... When the programme and speakers changed we again, acting responsibly as we always do, checked as to what might be said, and as a result decided that it was not appropriate
BY ED WEST
ARCHBISHOP George Stack of Cardiff has called for Catholics to challenge “the structures of injustice” in society.
At an installation Mass at Cardiff Metropolitan Cathedral the former Auxilliary Bishop of Westminster, said that “one of the greatest Christian virtues is hope... a living faith that even in turmoil and confusion there is a meaning and a purpose to existence which cannot be fully explained in the here and now, a conviction that nothing is wasted in the sight of God.”
The archbishop gave a summary of his homily in Welsh, which was received with loud applause by the congregation.
He also echoed Archbishop Vincent Nichols’s call for a renewed commitment to the “common good” and for Catholics to work harder to get their message across in the society at large.
“Pope Benedict XVI gave us an inspirational example in his speech at Westminster Hall when he explored the essential partnership between faith and reason.” he said. “He set out a path to help us navigate the social, economic and financial crises being faced by the western world. Whilst continuing to care for those who are poor in any way, and the support of the alienated and dispossessed, we must also have the courage to challenge those structures of injustice which deprive people of the ‘tools for conviviality’ which are essential if every person is to make a proper contribution to a civilised society.
“Perhaps we do not articulate our passion and compassion for the Common Good as well as we could. Perhaps we are misunderstood when we seek to contribute to the public discourse to the ‘civilisation of love’ spoken of by Pope Paul VI. Perhaps the role of faith in re-forming our varied communities is sometimes distorted or deliberately misunderstood.”
The seventh Archbishop of Cardiff was born in Cork in 1946 and attended school in north London, and was ordained in 1972. In 1990 he was appointed vicar general for Clergy in Westminster Diocese. He was responsible for pastoral care in Hertfordshire and in education.
He said at the installation that living in St Albans he was inspired by the third century martyr after whom it was named.
Pointing out that martyr means witness, he added: “Bearing witness to something greater than ourselves has always been a challenge. It is a demanding, challenging and difficult thing to do both personally and also as a community of faith which is the Church. We seek to bear witness to the truth about the human Archbishop George Stack leaves Cardiff cathedral after his installation Mazur/catholicchurch.org.uk to continue with the booking. Although this represented a considerable loss of income we followed our usual practice of putting conscience first,” he said.
The original main speaker, Cardinal Burke, cancelled unexpectedly just two weeks before the conference. He was scheduled to give a talk on the restoration of Church discipline and evangelisation.
He explained in a letter to Mrs McLeod that his speaking at the conference was being construed as a “direct criticism” of the bishops of England and Wales. He wrote: “It is not right for me to give a presentation in any place which in any way would reflect the lack of respect for the office of bishop in that place.”
Robert Ian Williams, a Catholic who contacted Methodist Central Hall last week, said Pro Ecclesia’s choice of speakers was “disturbing”, and that there were “serious questions” to be asked about the direction of the group.
He wrote: “I am not proud of my actions but I believe I acted honourably, and for the best interests of the Catholic Church, Westminster Central Hall, and the authentic message of our Lady of Fatima.” Letter to the Editor: Page 13 Charterhouse: Page 20
Nick Clegg may send sons to top Catholic school BY MARK GREAVES
NICK CLEGG, the Deputy Prime Minister, is reportedly seeking to send his three sons to a top Catholic state school despite his party’s pre-election pledge to dismantle the faith school system.
Mr Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democrats, was accused of “rank hypocrisy” after taking a tour of the London Oratory school in Chelsea, south-west London.
He and his wife, Miriam González Durántez, who is Catholic, live closer to several other schools, including a Catholic school, in Putney, but may try to enrol their children at the London Oratory instead. He defended he and his wife’s interest last week, saying that even though he was atheist, his children were being raised as Catholics.
Mr Clegg said: “”My kids are more precious to me than anything else in the world and the fact [is] that my wife is Catholic, I married in the Catholic Church and my children have been brought up by Catholics and go to a Catholic state primary school.
“It therefore shouldn’t be entirely surprising that maybe, just maybe, my wife might consider, we might consider as parents sending our children on to a state-funded Catholic secondary school.”
Mr Clegg’s interest in the London Oratory follows a Lib Dem manifesto last year that promised to stop Catholic, Anglican and Jewish schools from selecting pupils on the grounds of faith.
The policy was strongly criticised by Bishop Malcolm McMahon of Nottingham, who said at the time that Catholics should think seriously before voting Lib Dem.
The manifesto stated: “We will ensure that all faith schools develop an inclusive admissions policy and end unfair discrimination on grounds of faith.”
Bishop McMahon, chairman of the bishops’ conference Department for Education, said the policy undermined an agreement between Church and state enshrined in the 1944 Education Act.
The Lib Dems, he said, were “looking at changing the fundamentals of education policy, which is going to be very damaging for the Catholic Church”.
The London Oratory, where Tony Blair sent his children, is one of the top-rated comprehensive schools in the country. Earlier this year it amended its admissions policy so that, from September next year, parents of prospective pupils can be asked about their involvement in parish life. It is expected to convert to academy status later this year. Keith Porteous Wood, of the National Secular Society, accused Mr Clegg of hypocrisy.
He said: “As his wife Miriam is a Catholic it is understandable they would want a Catholic school. But he should not haul his children across London to go to the best. It reeks of elitism and goes against just about everything he has said about faith schools.”
