Trad. Mass Feast SS Peter & Paul

Trad. Mass Feast SS Peter & Paul

There will be a Mass in the Trad. Rite at Our Lady’s, Swynnerton at 7 pm on Thursday June 29, the Feast of Ss Peter & Paul.  Our thanks to Fr. Paul and the Scorey boys who will be serving.

Yesterday, details were sent out about the Confirmations in the Trad. Rite at Our Lady’s Shrine, Warrington.  There, at (to-be) Fr. Alex Stewart’s first Mass in the EF on the Sunday following (11 am, 18 June), Alison and Richard Cotton’s son Jude will be making his first Holy Communion.  A wonderful combination of events.

Busy Few Weeks Ahead

This is an update for a busy few weeks ahead.  As regards our main Church for Masses in the Trad. Rite, Sunday Masses at 6 pm will go ahead as usual.  There is a change to the Saturday 10 am Low Masses at Our Lady’s Swynnerton.  There will not be a Mass this Saturday (see message below*) as Father Paul will be attending confirmations in the Traditional rite in Our Lady’s Shrine, Warrington (Buttermarket St.), beginning 11 am.   The Mass, if you will, is transferred to the following Saturday, 10 am 24 June.  The fortnightly Masses continue as normal from the following scheduled Mass (1 July).  The day after, Sunday 2 July, there is the option of going to the annual LMS Holywell Pilgrimage Mass & Procession to the Well, 2 pm.  Three weeks later there is the annual LMS Summer School, at Pantasaph, viz:

2017 Summer School, for boys and girls aged 11-18 - Sunday 23rd July to Sunday 30th July 2017. This will be held once again at the Franciscan Retreat Centre in Pantasaph, North Wales   

*Some further details:  Dan Hitchins mentioned the ordinations in the Traditional Rite by Abp McMahon OP, next Saturday in his article in the current Catholic Herald.  The rector, whom I’ve known for some years (did an article on him for a ‘Universe’ magazine 4/5 years ago), Fr. de Malleray, has asked me to do an article on the event (includes a local lad from the Wirral whom I know, Deacon Alex Stewart.  The article will also cover his first Mass on the Sunday, 18 June, in the EF rite, first blessings, and the Corpus Christi procession following in the afternoon.  As I understand it, my own diocesan Bishop, Mark Davies, will be at the event after confirming a number of confirmandi in the traditional rite on the Wednesday, 7 pm, June 14, at Ss PPP (‘The Dome of Home’) New Brighton.
