24th January – Septuagesima

While the secular world talks about “dry January”, Catholics attending the Old Rite were reminded that an altogether more fulfilling period of fasting and abstinence is shortly upon us. Septuagesima Sunday called for violet vestments and no Gloria – as Fr.Alldrit reminded us, the Gloria will now not be heard until the Easter vigil. A very good blog about is is here; my photos of the 49 people at the 830 Mass are somewhat less good, but hopefully they give […]

Good news for 2016!

From 3rd January 2016, confessions will be heard every Sunday before Mass (from 8:15) and for another 15 minutes after Mass. That’s half an hour each Sunday! Fr. Patrick has been extremely generous to agree to adding this to his usual Sunday commitments, and it will be a great help to many. From Pope Francis’s Year of Mercy letter The forgiveness of God cannot be denied to one who has repented, especially when that person approaches the Sacrament of Confession with […]

FSSP Mass in Warrington

This falls slightly outside the remit of a “Bedford Latin Mass” blog, but we were lucky enough to have Fr de Malleray and Marcus Williams here in Bedford a few weeks ago – they are now opening the latest frontier of the FSSP, in Warrington. More details of the inaugural Mass are here, along with some beautiful photos: http://www.lmschairman.org/2015/11/fraternity-of-st-peter-are-installed-in.html  

Dominican Rite, 22nd November

Fr. Thomas Crean OP, from the Dominican priory in Leicester, was kind enough to say Mass on 22nd November. The Dominican rite is slightly different from the Extraordinary Roman Rite (see here for more details) and thanks also to go Nicholas for serving expertly! And while we are talking about serving – classes are available for anyone who would like to learn – please just contact us for more details. Fr. Crean returns on 13th December. Mass takes place every […]
