From the Revd Paul S. Williamson

Sir, — With regard to the Accounts and Expenditure of the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament (Editorial note, Letters, 5 August), I refer to copies forwarded to the Church Times.

On the second page of the Minutes of the AGM 2010, Section 11: “it was possible that CBS had done its work so far as it could be done in the Church of England.”

The Annual Report of the Trustees to 31 January 2011, page 2, states in its Objectives that the CBS exists “for the advancement of the catholic faith in the Anglican tradition”, and lists among its Activities organising services and meetings, publishing the Manual, giving “grants of vessels and vestments to parishes”, and “includes efforts to ensure that there will continue to be priests ordained in accordance with traditional Catholic order and sacraments on which Catholics can rely within the Church of England.”

The Report from the Superior-General on the Ordinariate grants states at (1) that this was initiated in December 2010, with the comment at (4) that “a substantial grant might be a helpful signal to others contemplating offering financial support to the Ordinariate.”

These reports are attached to the Accounts and form part of the explanation of the Accounts as required by law.
