Mass in Coventry

Fr Mark Higgins has contacted me to say that he will be celebrating an EF Mass at St Joseph the Worker, De Montfort Way, Cannon Park, Coventry CV4 7DU on Tuesday 1st December at 7.00pm. If you read the most recent copy of Mass of Ages you will be aware that there is currently no regular Mass in the whole of Coventry and Warwickshire and indeed currently there no LMS representative for the area. If you are in the area please try to support this one-off Mass and please inform anyone else who might be interested.

November Devotions for the Dead at the Oratory

With all the excitement over the first High Mass at St Augustine's in over one hundred years, I forgot to mention the additional High Mass for All Souls Day at the Birmingham Oratory. There were also five low Masses held during the day at 8.00am, 8.30am, 9.00am, 9.30am and 5.45pm. The 5.45pm time is significant: the Friday Mass at the Oratory has moved to this time from 6pm - during November this will be followed by Stations of the Cross for the Dead - and there is an additional low Mass at this time every Monday during November followed by Sung Vespers of the Dead. However, the last Monday (30th) will be part of the Novena preceding the Immaculate conception where there will be a daily Mass at 5.45pm followed by Pontifical High Mass presided by oratorian Bishop Robert Byrne at 7pm on the Feast itself. I will post details closer to the time.

Photos from the Solihull High Mass

Below are a few photos from the Solihull High Mass on Friday, believed to be the first High Mass at St Augustine's Church since 1939 when it was celebrated by Archbishop Williams for the hundredth anniversary of the church.

The recently (over the summer) ordained permanent deacon Kevin O'Connor performed the role of Deacon for the first time. St Augustine's is his home parish where he helped introduce a monthly last Friday Low Mass.

The Mass was celebrated by Fr Daniel Horgan, a Columban who is based in Solihull who celebrates the monthly last Friday Mass in the church.

The choir and servers, except for the MC and Subdeacon, were all trained by Deacon Kevin O'Connor from within the parish. The MC and Subdeacon are both from the Oratory parish, which holds a weekly High Mass at 10.30am on Sunday.

A full set of photos is available here. Unfortunately the quality of the photos is not very good- I am going to blame the age of the camera.
