New Year's Masses

New Year's Day falls on a Friday this year, which has a few implications for the celebration of the EF in the area:

1) The first Friday Mass Acocks Green will NOT take place

2) The usual 6.30pm Friday Mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Wolverhampton has been moved to 7pm on Christmas Eve. This was announced at late notice and does not appear in the church newsletter published over the weekend.

3) There will be a High Mass at 12 noon at the Birmingham Oratory, replacing the usual Octave 9am Mass.

I wish you all a Happy and Holy New Year.

Christmas Masses 2020

Most churches are taking bookings for Mass over Christmas due to the restrictions on numbers that have been placed on the church buildings. The Oratory will have four Latin Masses over Christmas as detailed above - 9pm on Christmas Eve (Sung), and 12 midnight (High), 9.30am (Low) and 10.30am (High) on Christmas Day. Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Wolverhampton and St Mary-on-the-Hill in Wednesbury usually have an Extraordinary Form Mass early in the morning on Christmas Day but you will need to check and book with the priest at the church in question if you are planning on travelling to these Masses, which may not take place this year and for obvious reasons priority will probably be given to parishioners.

I will take this opportunity to wish all readers to this blog a happy and holy Christmas and hopefully a better New Year in 2021.
