Friday Low Mass

For well over a year Fr George has celebrated weekly Low Mass at West Heath. Yesterday Fr Philip Cleevely kindly offered Mass for the Nativity of St John the Baptist, one of the only Saints to have a 'Birthday' other than the Feast of their rising to Heaven.

Fr George is thinking of bring the Mass forward to 6pm. What do you think?

Provision of Extraordinary Form Latin Mass at St John Fisher, West Heath

Solemn Patronal High Mass 9th July 2011 at 12 noon

Since the summer of 2009, Mass has been celebrated on First Fridays at 7 pm. Last year the decision was taken to provide a Low Mass every Friday at 7 pm, and that is the current provision, plus occasional Solemn Masses.

Attendance at the Low Masses fluctuates somewhat, with an average attendance of about 12-14. The question has arisen whether it would be better, especially during winter, to celebrate this Mass earlier.

Requests have also been made for the provision of a Sunday Mass. Because of Fr’s workload and current agreements in the Deanery about Sunday Mass times, it would not be possible to provide a Sunday Mass earlier than 5.30 pm. 

A desire has been expressed that a Sunday Mass be a Missa Cantata.

Consequently, you are invited to let Fr have your views on the following questions:
1.       Would you prefer the Friday evening Mass to be celebrated at 6 pm instead of 7 pm? This might encourage people to come straight from work without going home first.
2.       Would you be prepared to support a Mass on Sundays at 5.30 pm?
3.       Would you be willing to sing in a schola at a Missa Cantata at 5.30 pm on Sundays?
4.       If you have expertise in chant, would you be prepared to train a small schola to sing at a Sunday evening Mass?
5.       Would you be willing to serve at a Sunday evening Mass?

Fr George would be prepared to say a Sunday evening Mass if upwards of 15 people are prepared to commit themselves to assist at it. Initially it would be on an experimental basis for say two months.
Thank you: your views are appreciated.

St Joseph's, Burslem

The Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate took over this poor parish church a couple of years ago, and now offer a sung Latin Mass (EF) every Sunday at 6pm.

On the first Sunday of the month there is a family afternoon preceding it at 2pm with lots of refreshments and activities for the whole family (today three age groups).

I would heartily recommend any Catholic Family to make the trip to Staffordshire once per month. This afternoon we had Adoration and Benediction with the Novena to the Holy Ghost for Pentecost.

V./ Sacred Hearts of Jesus & Mary,
R./ Bless up and keep us.

For Pentecost Sunday it will be a Solemn High Mass.

West Heath will have it's fifth annual Solemn High Mass for it's Patron St John Fisher, & St Thomas More, on Saturday 9th July 2011 at 12 noon. It will as ever be followed by food, in the new garden weather permitting.
