Welcome to the site for News, Events and up-to-date Information on Traditional Catholicism in the West Midlands (UK). I am one of the Diocesan Representatives for the Latin Mass Society of England & Wales for the Promotion of the Traditional Roman Rite.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel updates/ Eastertide News

I trust all the readers of this blog had a Holy and Happy Easter.

The May first Monday Mass at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in neighbouring Redditch will take place on the second Monday (12th May) instead - this is because the first Monday is a Bank Holiday. I have also been asked to mention that the Church will be holding Divine Mercy devotions from 3pm on Sunday 27th April. Although not strictly EF, I understand there will be Latin hymns for Benediction so anyone familiar with these will be welcome to join in and help evangelise their fellow non-Latin speaking Catholics!

There were around a dozen people at the Low Mass on Easter day held at St John Fisher in West Heath, including some non-parishioners. I did not attend the Oratory High Mass but I am sure it would have been as well-attended and beautiful as usual.

A final request - please keep in your prayers the LMS pilgrimage to St Chad's Cathedral on Saturday 17th May and do your best to attend and invite anyone else who might be interested if you possibly can.

Holy Week Mass Cancellations

We enter a rather barren period for the Extraordinary Form in Birmingham over Holy Week. Please note the following Mass changes:

The Mass at Halesowen tomorrow (16/04/2014) has been cancelled and should resume next week. Please phone before travelling though (telephone number available in the Mass listing in the sidebar).

The 6.30pm Friday Masses at St John Fisher in West Heath have been cancelled for the next two weeks (this week because it is Good Friday and next week because Fr George is not available). The regular Mass will return on the 2nd May. There will however be an additional Low Mass at 8.30am on Easter Sunday.

There will of course be no Masses on Good Friday or the morning of Holy Saturday at the Oratory. Normal service will resume with High Mass on Easter Sunday at 10.30am.

Similarly, the Friday Mass at Wolverhampton will not be taking place on Good Friday.

Finally, a date for your diaries. There will be a pilgrimage to St Chad's Cathedral in Birmingham City Centre on 17th May with High Mass at 12 noon. Please attend if you are able and keep the project in your prayers. More details will be published when available.
