The Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Just a reminder that there is a 6pm Low Mass tomorrow at the Birmingham Oratory for the Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

 There are now five resident priests at the Birmingham Oratory which means more masses are possible - this is the latest in a series of 'extra' 6pm EF Low Masses that have been celebrated as a result. Below are some picture from the Mass for the Nativity of Our Lady celebrated on 8th September courtesy of the Birmingham Oratory Facebook page:

I encourage you to attend these extra Masses if possible - who knows, if demand can be demonstrated the Birmingham Oratory may decide to make this extra provision more regular.
