Mass of Ages Report: February 2010

The High Mass of Requiem for the parish in West Bromwich was attended by over 150 people, mostly from the local area. The guest choir of ensemble 1685 sang the Polyphonic Requiem of Jean Richafort magnificently, with the congregation joining in with plainchant Dies Irae. A DVD/Video is available for £5, please contact me for details. I am looking into having regular Low Masses at this church in the future.

I had the opportunity of attending the installation of our new Archbishop Bernard Longley; he seemed pleased to see a representative of the LMS when I met him afterwards (see page 21).

We managed a Missa Cantata at 4pm on Christmas Eve, which was the first Mass of Christmas at the Oratory and had 170 people in attendance! Numbers at regular masses also continue to increase, with the EF Mass clearly having established itself as a normal part of parish life.

The First Friday Mass at West Heath has started well on our cold dark evenings, with about twenty people attending. Fr George said Benediction on the first day of 2010 with a litany of the Holy Name.
