To keep you upto date

It so happens that the previous posting's Mass was, presumably, the last Mass at Ashton-under-Lyne as Fr. Francis Wadsworth has been posted to St. Marie's, Bury.

I wish Fr. Francis every joy and happiness in his new parish. And I hope it isn't too long before he starts offering the TLM at St. Marie's.

This evening I had a very nice chat with Fr. Hilton of Bolton, (Breightmet) who is offering a regular Thursday evening Mass at St. Osmund's at 7.15p.m. On the third Thursday the Mass is followed by Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

I also had a very pleasant conversation with Fr. Farrell, the Parish Priest at St. Joseph's, Longsight who offers an Ordinary Rite Latin Mass every Friday evening. Father was very encouraging.

Mass for the First Friday of the month will be offered at St. Chad's, Cheetham Hill Road, Manchester, at 7.30p.m.

On Sunday there will be the usual regular Mass at Holy Name, Oxford Road at 4.00p.m.
