Two patronal feasts will also be celebrated in the 1962 Missal locally. Firstly, the Feast of St Dunstan coincides with the third Friday Mass at St Dunstan's church in Kings Heath on the 19th May: a Missa Cantata will be celebrated on this occasion. A week later, on the 26th May, is the Feast of St Philip Neri, founder of the Oratories. High Mass will be celebrated at the Birmingham Oratory at 7.30pm, replacing the usual 5.45pm Low Mass. Again, the music is detailed in the poster below.
