Changes to Mass of Ages Mass Listings for All Saints and All Souls

All Saints falling on a Monday has caused a few problems, with the Bishops of England and Wales (but not Scotland) transferring the Feast to Sunday. However, in the 1962 calendar, this is the Feast of Christ the King, and because feasts of Our Lord Jesus Christ trump all other Masses, this was the Mass that was celebrated today at 7.30am and 10.30am at the Birmingham Oratory - usually an External Solemnity of All Saints would be offered for the transferred Feast. Please note the schedule for All Saints and All Souls which differs from the Mass listings in Mass of Ages:

All Saints (Monday 1st November)
5.45pm Birmingham Oratory (Missa Cantata) n.b. no High Mass at 7.30pm as published in Mass of Ages
6.30pm St Mary-on-the-Hill Wednesbury (Low Mass)
7.30pm Our Lady of Perpetual Succour (High Mass)

All Souls (Tuesday 2nd November)
5.45pm Birmingham Oratory (Low Mass)
6.30pm St Mary-on-the-Hill Wednesbury (Low Mass)
7.30pm Birmingham Oratory (High Mass)

So although there is no High Mass at the Birmingham Oratory tomorrow, there will be one at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Wolverhampton. Directions for all these parishes are available in the sidebar.
