On Saturday 8th July 2017 the First Archdiocesan Trustees met at St George’s Cathedral in London to agree the Constitution of the soon to be formed Archdiocesan Charity. Although the meeting was lengthy and, for the most part, technical, it established a firm foundation for the Archdiocese’s activities as covered by charity law. Several amendments to the Charity Commission’s basic template were considered and either approved or dismissed. The process now begins to get the charity approved and registered at the Charity Commission. It will probably not be before the end of the year that this process is complete.
