Welcome to the site for News, Events and up-to-date Information on Traditional Catholicism in the West Midlands (UK). I am one of the Diocesan Representatives for the Latin Mass Society of England & Wales for the Promotion of the Traditional Roman Rite.

Corpus Christi Thursday

Corpus Christi Thursday is the only holyday of obligation not restored to its proper date, so Masses for this are only available in the Extraordinary Form (it is the feast of the Visitation in the Ordinary Form). In this region, there will be a 6pm low Mass at St Mary on the Hill in Wednesbury, and a 7.30pm High Mass at the Birmingham Oratory which will be followed by an indoor procession and benediction (please note this replaces the usual 5.45pm low Mass).

Please also note that the First Friday Mass at Solihull which should take place on 2nd June has been postponed until the following week (9th June). It will be High Mass for the Feast of the Sacred Heart.

Bank Holiday High Mass

There will be a High Mass on Bank Holiday Monday at the Birmingham Oratory for the transferred Feast of St Philip Neri, the founder of the Oratories. His feast is actually the 26th May,  but in the Extraodinary Form calender this falls within the Octave of Pentecost so would need to be transferred to the Monday after Trinity Sunday. This is the first time the principal Mass of the founder of the Oratories has been held in the Extraordinary Form so please do your best to attend if you are at a loose end on the Bank Holiday.

First Mass in the EF

Catholics attached to tradition have just witnessed the ordination of Brother Dominic by his fellow Oratorian Bishop Robert Byrne C.O. Tomorrow his first Mass will be High Mass in the Extraordinary Form at 10.30am. There cannot have been many occassions since the reforms that an newly ordained priest has celebrated his first Mass in the EF without being in a exclusively old rite order. First blessings will be available after Mass.

Oratory Music List May 2018

There will be no first Friday Mass at St Augustine's in Solihull this week - however the "third Friday" St Dunstan's Mass is being brought forward to the second Friday (11th May).

There will be a low Mass at St Mary on the Hill Wednesbury at 6pm for the Feast of the Ascension, which has returned to being a holyday of obligation, alongside the 7.30pm High Mass at the Birmingham Oratory.

The Oratory has published its music list for EF Masses in the month of May.
