St Edward the Confessor

In addition to the regular 9am Saturday low Mass at the Oratory, there will be two additional low Masses in the region to celebrate the Feast of St Edward the Confessor.

10am Holy Cross, Upper Saint John Street, Lichfield, WS14 9DX
11am St Mary on the Hill, St Mary's Road, Wednesbury, WS10 9DL

Holy Cross is very close to Lichfield City Railway station, and St Mary on the Hill is just off junction 9 of the M6 (see sidebar for directions) so both are relatively easy to get to regardles of which form of transport you are using.
