Two High Masses for the Epiphany on 6th January

There will be two High Masses in the region for the Feast of the Epiphany celebrated on Saturday 6th January, both at 11am at the Birmingham Oratory and Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Wolverhampton. The Mass in Wolverhampton will be for the repose of the soul of Pope Benedict, who passed away just over a year ago.

This differs slightly from the Mass Listings disseminated with the most recent Mass of Ages which said the Epiphany would be celebrated as Low Mass at the usual time of 9am on Saturday and as an External Solemnity at 10.30am on Sunday - in fact, the 9am Mass will be in English and the Masses on Sunday will be the Masses of the second Sunday following Christmas, which in the 1962 Missal is of the Holy Family.
