Bank Holiday Mass/ Holiday Mass Reports

There will be an additional 9.30am EF Mass at the Birmingham Oratory on Bank Holiday Monday.

The Redditch Masses at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in neighbouring Worcestershire now take place on the second Monday of the month. In September, this will coincide with the eighth anniversary of Summorum Pontificum coming into force, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. There was a good turnout at this Mass in August, with around fourteen people turning up despite the fact it was in the middle of the holidays and some regulars were not able to make it.

Due to the holidays, the August  2nd Wednesday Maryvale Mass took place away from the usual location of the Maryvale Chapel and was celebrated at the neighbouring parish church of Our Lady of the Assumption instead. This is the second time the parish church has held the Mass: we also celebrated Mass there in April we could not contact the Bridgettines to let us into the chapel! It was perhaps apt, given it fell in the same week of the Feast of the Assumption, traditionally celebrated on the 15th August but transferred to the Sunday this year.

Assumption of BVM

There will be two EF Masses for the Assumption at the Birmingham Oratory: you can either celebrate a Missa Cantata at the regular 9.30am Saturday Mass on the traditional date, or attend the High Mass as an external solemnity on the Sunday to which the feast has been transferred by the Bishops of England and Wales.
