Upcoming Masses

Traditional Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord
Solemn High Mass
in the Extraordinary Form
of the Roman Rite ('Tridentine')
Birmingham Oratory

8pm - Thursday, May 21st 2009

VIRI Galiǽi, quid admirámini aspiciéntes in cælum? allelúia: quemádmodum vidístis eum ascendéntem in cælum, ita véniet, allelúia, allelúia, allelúia.

YE men of Galilee, why wonder you, looking up to heaven? alleluia. He shall so come as you have seen Him going up into heaven, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Here is the perfect opportunity to observe this important feast of Our Lord on the day it is properly intended. Tailored Mass books and full translations are provided, which will make it perfect for newcomers to the Traditional Latin Mass.

Also: there will invariably be Low Mass every Saturday at 9:30am in St Philip's Chapel (adjacent to the Sacristy, entrance next to the Sacred Heart Altar). Adoration happens in the main church every Saturday morning 8.30-10.45, ending with Benediction. So this little Mass is an excellent way to extend this devotion. Please check with me (07967 729168) before travelling, to avoid disappointment, the night before!

Of course, the Sunday Low Mass at 9.30am continues, with new tailored Mass booklets available soon, along with a propers sheet every week.

I hope to expand the Latin Mass a bit further afield from Birmingham Oratory, which may take some time. In the meantime, it has been suggested we have pilgrimages, and I think a good idea would be one to Harvington Hall for the feast of St John Wall when there will be a Missa Cantata. This will probably be the first Sunday in September, which is a long way away. Please let me know any other suggestions.
