Rorate Masses and the Immaculate Conception

Due to the Immaculate Conception falling on a Saturday this year, the Rorate Masses usually celebrated at the Birmingham Oratory on Saturday mornings at 7.30am during Advent will start on 15th December with one more on the 22nd. Instead, on 8th December, High Mass will be celebrated at 11am. There will additionally be a low Mass at the same time in Wednesbury at St Mary-on-the-Hill.

The Immaculate Conception is the patronal feast of the Oratory in Birmingham and so first Vespers will also be celebrated on 7th December at 7.30pm. The music list is as follows:

Deus in Adjutorium Padilla
Magnificat I Palestrina
Ave Maria a 5 Morales

This year, Rorate Masses will also be taking place at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Wolverhampton every Thursday in Advent (6th, 13th and 20th December) at 7am. This is in addition to the weekly 6.30pm Friday Mass.
