Today when I arrived at St. Joseph's, Bradford, the parish Priest told me that one of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal from the nearby St. Pio friary was waiting to have a word with me. He introduced me to Fr. Franciszek who was ordained in May and has since being a minister at a solemn Mass and has said the old Mass on many occasions since his ordination. Fr. had already contacted the bishop to seek permission, which he duly received, to say the Mass. He wanted to know if he might join the rota - and so we now have six or seven regular celebrants who are willing and able to celebrate the Mass for us on Sundays at St. Joseph's and in their parishes. It was very moving at the end of Mass for the people to kneel individually to receive his first blessing. Ad multos annos Fr. Franciszek. Originally from Nebraska, Fr. trained for the sacred priesthood in New York. We wish him God's blessing in his priestly ministry.
This week there will be Mass as follows:
Tuesday, St. Ignatius, Ossett, 6.00 p.m.
NO MASS on Wednesday at St. Winefride's
Thursday, St. Anthony's, Clayton, 9.30 a.m.

Friday, St. Austin's, Wakefield, 7.30 p.m.
