The Translation of St Chad and Wednesbury Masses

The Tuesday after the fourth Sunday after Easter is the Feast of the Translation of St Chad in the Archdiocese of Birmingham, which is unique to the Extraodinary Form. Five years ago we held a High Mass at St Chad's Cathedral in Birmingham on the closest Saturday (see photo below). This year Fr Anthony Dykes will be celebrating a low/ sung Mass at Holy Cross Church in Upper Saint John Street Lichfield starting at 7pm on the feast itself (Tuesday 21st May 2019).

The following ad-hoc Masses will be celebrated at St Mary-on-the-Hill in Wednesbury over the next few months and were advertised in the most recent copy of Mass of Ages:

Oratory May Music List

The Oratory has released its music list for May. Please note that the daily low Mass tomorrow will take place at 9am rather than the usual time of 5.45pm because of the Bank Holiday.

Please also note there will be a votive sung Mass of Our Lady at St Dunstan's this Friday (10th May) because the third Friday this month coincides with the patronal feast of the parish.
