The Octave of Christmas 2019/20

For the first time since I have been representative of the area, and probably since the reforms, there will be Midnight Mass in the Extraordinary Form at the Birmingham Oratory in addition to the Mass of the day at 10.30am. These form two of four Masses in the region on Christmas Day itself, along with Masses at Wolverhampton at 8.00am and Wednesbury at 11.30am. As usual, during the Christmas Octave, and this year also on Christmas Eve, the weekday evening 5.45pm Mass at the Oratory moves to 9am in the morning. There are also several additional Masses in Wednesbury as detailed in the schedule below. I wish all readers of this blog a happy and holy Christmas 2019 and New Year 2020!
