Last Mass

The first Sunday of August this year marks our last at St Joseph's, Castleford. Since the inception of the Mass each Sunday at 3.00 p.m. and at Bishop Roche's request it has become increasingly clear that a more central location was required and as I reported earlier this year Bishop Stock has named the parish of St. Joseph's in Bradford as a regular place of particular worship at Mass according to the books of 1962 and in addition to the regular and growing scedule . Sadly this means a change of direction and I am sorry that the faithful of  Castleford will be deprived of the form of Sunday worship they have sought out.

Pentecost XII will also be the regular sung 11.30 a.m. Mass at Broughton Hall's Sacred Heart chapel near Skipton.

As I have holiday time next week I shall soon be able to give details of the new schedule for the EF Latin Mass in this diocese from September.

Already I have received inquiries about baptism, first confession, confirmations, marriage and have heard interesting nonsense about the bishop trying to sabotage the whole Latin Mass thing in the diocese.
There is no truth in this ugly rumour.
I believe the Bishop is the last person in the diocese to disapprove of his priests celebrating the Mass in the Extraordinary Form.
