AN APPEAL FOR THE DIOCESE OF GIBRALTAR WE commend to
our readers the appeal issued by the Bishop of Gibraltar for his Diocese, which includes the countries of Southern Europe and stretches to the east of the Mediterra- nean. The Diocesan funds and those of its Mission to Seamen have always depended largely upon collections made during the winter and spring among the. British visitors to the Riviera and elsewhere. These will obviously be greatly reduced.this year. Some small reduction of expenditure may be possible in the Chaplaincies for hivernants (which generally. support themselves), but the work in the permanent colonies of British residents employed abroad commercially or otherwise must go on, and the invaluable work of the Mission to Seamen in the ports must not be curtailed. Many who have enjoyed time spent within the Diocese in the past but are staying at home this year may be glad to send donations to :—The Office Secretary, Gibraltar Diocesan Office, 35 Wood Street, Westminster, S.W. 1.
