Sectarian Golf

From the UK, a Catholics vs. Anglicans all-clergy golf match scheduled; NT Wright to captain the Anglican side.
Fr Mick Conaty, Parish priest of St Anthony of Padua, Newcastle, is captaining the Catholic team. He said: "I haven't picked the team yet. I don't know who the Anglicans are and what the strength of their team is, and I'm having a difficult time getting the information!"

This is the first time in the North East that teams of clergy of the two Christian churches have met on the golf course. The match came about when both Bishops found they were keen on golf. Catholic Bishop Dunn was vague about his actual handicap but reckoned he could 'get round in about 100.'
May the best stroke win.
