Staffordshire Neighbours Appeal

Paul Boston is trying to get a regular Tradiitonal Mass in a village near Stafford. He is seeking support to present to his parish priest (do not have to be villagers), and has set up a contact email address: He would welcome any interest, and for the establishment of Latin masses in mid- and south Staffs.

Fr Kazimierz Stefek's Order

In the LMS Mass of Ages magazine just out, the Report for N. Staffs refers to Fr. K., the parish priest of St. Augustine's, Meir, newly celebrating a weekly Old Rite Mass, as belonging to the Order of St. Paul the Hermit, the OPSEE, which should in fact be the OSPPE. Apologies, and looking forward to Fr. K. next celebrating in his church at 7pm 26 Aug. when he returns from visiting family in Poland (The OSPPE run the National Marian shrine of Jasna Gora there).

Masses at Meir in August

There is a traditional rite Mass this Wednesday at 7pm, but there will not be Wednesday evening Masses at St. Augustine’s Meir on the 12 and 19 Aug., as Fr. Kazimierz is away.  They will resume the following Wednesday, 26 Aug. at 7 pm.

Fr. Tynan Has Died

Some sad news: Fr. Joseph Tynan whom most will remember well and fondly, has died (Sat. 25 July) at the nursing home by Oulton Abbey.  He served lovers of the Traditional Rite well for years, introducing a regular Sunday Mass to his parish church (The Good Shepherd) in Blurton, though the church has since closed.  He lived to the age of 88, having been a priest since 1962, ordained on St. Patrick’s Day.  There will be only a limited number of mourners allowed when the funeral in the Abbey chapel takes place (Aug 5).  A later archdiocese organised funeral is intended.  Dates unknown as yet, and a helpful contact might be his housekeeper Sally Buckley (07740-760906), whose mother was previously his housekeeper for thirty years.
