April's Solihull Mass tomorrow

Pugin Altar, St Augustine's. Solihull
I have just been informed that the usual first Friday Mass at Solihull last week did not take place because Fr Daniel Horgan was away and will instead take place tomorrow at 6.30pm.

The Pugin altar above is sadly not the one that is used - there is not enough room around it so Mass is celebrated at the newer main altar. Bizarrely, this older altar faced south west, and no-one is sure why it was built this way. St Augustine's is described as Pugin's first church and it is certainly the oldest of Pugin's existing churches, even though the church has been modernised several times to accomodate greater numbers, For more on the history of the church, please see this link.

Wolverhampton High Mass for the Feast of the Annunciation

The Annunciation by Edward Burne-Jones
There will be a 7.30pm High Mass tomorrow at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Wolverhampton (Cannock Road, WV10 8PG - directions in the sidebar) in honour of the Feast of the Annunciation. It will be celebrated by Fr George Grynowski, formerly of St John Fisher in West Heath and Fr Douglas Lamb, who celebrates EF Masses in Kidderminster, will deliver the homily.

I have had no word from the Oratory but I assume there will be a low Mass, possibly a Missa Cantata, at the normal time of 5.45pm.

The painting of the Annunciation on the left is by Edward Burne-Jones and is located at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
