Holy Week and Easter 2021

 The Birmingham Oratory has released its programme for Holy Week and Easter which was not available at the time Mass of Ages was published:

Note that the High Mass on Palm Sunday begins half an hour earlier at 10am rather than the usual time of 10.30am, and the Maundy Thursday High Mass is at the earlier time of 6pm to accommodate Tenebrae at 8pm (in previous years this would have been celebrated at 9am on the next day).

Although there is a Mass scheduled for 11.30am at St Mary-on-the-Hill in Wednesbury, please note that this must be booked in advance. Please also note that the usual Friday Mass at Wolverhampton has been moved to Monday this week.

The Solemnity of St Joseph in the Year of St Joseph

As the Solemnity of St Joseph in the Year of St Joseph falls on a Friday, there is a choice of three Masses in the Extraordinary Form that will be offered publicly in the region as follows: the 6.30pm low Mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Wolverhampton (preceded by Divine Mercy devotions and Eucharistic Adoration at 5.30pm), the third Friday Mass at St Dunstan's in Kings Heath at 7pm, and a High Mass at the Birmingham Oratory at 7.30pm which will replace the usual 5.45pm daily low Mass. The music for this Mass is detailed in the graphic below.

Similarly next week there will be a 7.30pm High Mass at the Oratory for the Solemnity of the Annunciation, replacing the usual 5.45pm Low Mass. Directions to all of these Masses are available in the sidebar. 

I am reminded that the third Friday Mass at St Dunstan's last year was one of the last Masses to be celebrated in Birmingham before the cessation of the public celebration of Mass prior to the first lockdown, a couple of days after my father's death. We pray that normality will soon resume.
