Welcome to the site for News, Events and up-to-date Information on Traditional Catholicism in the West Midlands (UK). I am one of the Diocesan Representatives for the Latin Mass Society of England & Wales for the Promotion of the Traditional Roman Rite.

The Guild of St Clare in Wednesbury

 A parishioner at St Mary-on-the-Hill in Wednesbury is hoping to start a local chapter of the Guild of St Clare; there will be an exploratory meeting this Saturday 24th September 2022 at 11am in the church hall. Directions are available in the sidebar.

The Guild of St Clare was founded in Oxford in 2009. Its purpose is to repair and make the liturgical vestments necessary for the celebration of the traditional liturgy of the Catholic Church, to pass on the skills necessary for this, and to promote domestic sewing.

The Guild today runs two Sewing Retreats each year, where liturgical sewing is combined with spiritual talks and liturgy, one in the spring and one in the autumn. 

It also runs Vestment Mending Days in London on Saturdays.

There are local chapters around the country.

Everyone is welcome at Guild events: appropriate tasks can be found for all skill levels.

The Guild is affiliated with the Latin Mass Society, which was founded in 1965 to promote traditional Catholic liturgy. The Latin Mass Society is a registered charity, number 248388.

The Guild’s spiritual patron is St Clare of Assisi, who, like many female religious over the centuries, made liturgical vestments.

The Exaltation of the Holy Cross

High Mass will be offered at the Birmingham Oratory for the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross at 7.30pm, replacing the usual 5.45pm low Mass.

Please note that Mass at Our Lady of Perpetual in Succour on Friday is cancelled - this is bad luck as there are a couple of priests who cover the Mass who are also unavailable. It is the only time Mass has been cancelled in nearly ten years since the 1962 Missal has been offered at the church.

The third Friday Mass at St Dunstan's in Kings Heath is going ahead as normal and is a possible alternative, albeit on the other side of Birmingham, along with the 5.45pm daily Mass at the Oratory of course.
