This blog is offered as a forum within which events to promote and celebrate the Traditional Catholic Latin Liturgy can be organised in the North of England. The idea emerged during conversations at the 2010 Low Week Latin Mass Society training course at Ushaw College.

Recollection and Douai Martyrs

This Saturday is the feast of the Douai Martyrs. There will be a High Mass at St Joseph`s, Gateshead at 12 noon. This feast has an added poignancy this year given the uncertainty over the future of Ushaw college, the northern successor of Douai. The celebrant will be Fr Simon Leworthy FSSP.

Preceding the Mass there will be a morning of recollection for lay people given by Fr Leworthy. This will start at 10am and will include time for confessions. Other parts of the country have days of recollection organised by the LMS but this is the first time we have attempted this in the North East. If you are coming you may like to bring a packed lunch for after the Mass. Many thanks to Fr Adrian Dixon, the parish priest of St Joseph`s for letting us use his church for this event.

St Joseph`s, Gateshead is very easy to reach by public transport: it is immediately opposite Gateshead Metro station.

Pontifical High Mass at the Throne at Holy Cross Leicester

The Prior and community of the Dominican Priory of the Holy Cross Leicester are pleased to announce:
Celebrant: Bishop Malcolm McMahon, OP, Bishop of Nottingham
The Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Wednesday 8th December, 2010 at 7pm
Followed by the consecration of a Shrine to the English Martyrs.
I think I am correct that this will be the first Pontifical High Mass of a Bishop in his Diocese for a very long time indeed! It would be wonderful to have as many people as possible attend this.
Clergy are invited to sit in choir. Please bring Cotta and biretta, and stole if receiving communion. Please could you inform me at the e-mail address below.
If any clergy or servers who feel they would like to be part of the sanctuary party, please contact me at They would need to be free to attend a few rehearsals.

Sacristan & Master of Ceremonies,
Priory of the Holy Cross,
