SS Peter and Paul and the Most Precious Blood

The 10.30am High Mass today was a celebration of the External Solemnity of SS Peter and Paul. There will be a Missa Cantata tomorrow at 6pm for those who wish to celebrate the feast on the traditional date.

There will also be a Missa Cantata at 6pm on Wednesday for the Old Rite Feast of the Most Precious Blood.
I was lucky enough to be present for the ordination of Kevin O'Connor to the permanent diaconate today at St Chad's Cathedral. Kevin set up the monthly last Friday Mass in his parish of St Augustine's in Solihull, and has been a great help in keeping the 2nd Wednesday Mass at Maryvale going after the departure of Fr Paul Lester. There will be a thanksgiving Mass (OF) at St Augustine's tomorrow at 7pm if you missed the ordination.

Please note, due to holidays, there will  no last Friday Mass in Solihull in July, but it should return in August.

Fr Ian Verrier FSSP at the Birmingham Oratory

Fr (then Mr) Ian Verrier (Credit: Path Less Taken)
Earlier today Fr Ian Verrier FSSP celebrated his first High Mass at St James, Spanish Place in London. Fr Verrier is a former Anglican convert who was born in Birmingham - Mary O'Reagan of the Catholic Herald wrote an excellent article about him here.

I was pleased to hear earlier today (hence the late notice!) that tomorrow he will be celebrating High Mass at the Birmingham Oratory at 10.30am, and first blessings will be administered in the Newman Shrine afterwards. Another FSSP priest and two seminarians will also be in attendance. As Fr Ian is a former Music student, I am sure it will be a very beautiful celebration so do try and attend if you are able.
