There will be a traditional Latin Mass (Low) at Our Lady's, Swynnerton at 6pm., Nov. 1.

As usual there will be a traditional Mass (Low) this Sunday, 30 Oct., for the Feast of Christ the King, but there will NOT be Mass next Saturday morning (5 Nov.) as Fr. Chavasse has a prior engagement.

Friday, 30 September 2016


Fr. Chavasse will be away the next two Sundays (2 & 9 Oct.), but Masses will go ahead at Our Lady’s, Swynnerton as usual at 6 pm.  Indeed, they will both probably be Sung Masses.  They will be celebrated by Fr. Stephen Goodman of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Church in Wolverhampton.  There will be the usual fortnightly Low Mass on Saturday 8 Oct. at 10 am with Fr. Chavasse.

Fr. Goodman will be celebrating a Solemn High Mass at his church in Cannock Road on the Feast of the Holy Rosary , Oct. 7, at 7. 30pm (please confirm before travelling).
There will be the usual First Friday Mass with Fr. Dykes at St. Wulstan's Church, Wolstanton, near Newcastle, at 7pm Oct. 7th, Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.

Unfortunately there are two cancellation this week.  Fr. Dykes is in Valladolid and we have not got a priest for the usual First Friday 7pm Mass at St. Wulstan’s, Wolstanton.  Next First Friday Mass there will be 1st July (please note the following Sunday 3 July is the annual LMS Pilgrimage to Holywell).

Father Chavasse is undergoing more treatment so the Mass this coming Saturday morning is cancelled.  We should have Fr. Stephen Goodman for the 6 pm Sunday Mass (June 5) which may be a Missa Cantata.

Unfortunately there will not be a local Mass for the traditional Feast Of Corpus Christi in the EF form.  There will be Masses in New Brighton (Ss Peter Paul & Philomena) and St Mary’s (FSSP) in Warrington, but I have not found out any times other than the usual morning Mass times as yet.


We may also be struggling for a First Friday Mass on 3 June, though we have a replacement for Fr. Chavasse (further treatment, poor man) for the Mass at Swynnerton on Sunday 5 June.  Almost certainly we will have a Mass for Ss Peter & Paul, June 29.
