I am very pleased to announce that we have two Masses scheduled over the summer months at Markenfield Hall just south of Ripon in the beautiful medieval chapel. The postcode is HG4 3AD.

The first Mass is later this month on July 12th at 6.00 p.m. and will be a missa cantata. The celebrant for this Mass is Fr. Parfitt.

On August 18th at 11.00 a.m. there will be the annual sung Mass of Requiem for the members of the Markenfield family who suffered terribly for the Faith following the Rising of the North in 1569. As usual the celebrant for the Mass will be Fr. Creighton-Jobe of the London Oratory with the chant provided by monks of Ampleforth Abbey.

The family again extend a warm welcome to those wishing to attend these Masses. You can read more about the Hall at the website http://markenfieldhall.com/

Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

This Litany in honour of Jesus in His Most Precious Blood was drawn up by the Sacred Congregation of Rites and promulgated by Pope John XXIII on February 24, 1960. The devotion to Jesus in His most Precious Blood was first popularized by Saint Gaspar del Bufalo (1786-1837, feast Dec. 28) who founded the Missioners of the Most Precious Blood. A partial Indulgence is granted to the faithful who recite this litany.

Ad multos annos Father Phipps!

The priestly ordination of Seth Phipps FSSP will take place at St Mary's Church, Warrington, at 11am on Saturday 9th June.  Archbishop Malcolm McMahon of Liverpool will be the ordaining bishop.

A year ago, at the same church, Archbishop McMahon ordained two new priests for the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter.  These are now both working in the USA.  In recent years, there has been a steady trickle of ordinations of Englishmen (and Scotsmen) in the FSSP, although, before last year, all took place abroad. 





Please note that I have copied and pasted the above from the latinmassmiddlesbrough blog.

Pentecost II


Picture
Thank you to all those who made this evening's Solemn High Mass for the Feast of the Sacred Heart  such a beautiful occasion, including Revv Smith, Aladics and Crawley and the St. Austin singers. The whole occasion was most memorable and the singing superlative. We are planning a Solemn Mass for All Souls in November


We are back to the green of post-Pentecost period, a colour which suggests life and in the Eastern Church the colour of the Holy Ghost - the Lord the giver of life. The Gospel recalls the man who invited many to his great supper - redolent of the spiritual banquet which is the Mass.




We have two Masses on Sunday:


11.00 a.m. Sacred Heart, Broughton Hall, Skipton
12.30 p.m. St. Joseph's, Pakington Street, Bradford (missa cantata)

The Mass at St. Joseph's will be followed by the baptism of young Dominic James Illingworth of Bradford who is one of the youngest members of the TLM attendees at this church. Congratulations to him and his parents. Fr. Michael Hall will be the minister conferring this great Sacrament and the celebrant at the Mass beforehand.

Friday is the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and there will be a Solemn High Mass at St. Ignatius, Storrs Hill Road, Ossett at 7.30 p.m.

It would be wonderful to see a turnout similar to the one there was for the feast of Candlemas in February at St. Austin's in Wakefield.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!
