Low Mass at Bury and sad news

I was relieved to arrive in good time for Mass tonight at St. Marie's in Bury. A solid congregation of 25 in this remarkable church along with a very engaging sermon brought the memory of the Dominican and Confessor, St. Raymond to life. (The good saint himself lived to be a hundred years old from 1175-1275).

On a sadder note Fr Wadsworth informs me of the death of a Latin Mass Society member, Mr. Joseph Peter Schofield, beloved husband and father of four. Mr. Schofield was a parishioner of St. Ann's, Ahton under Lyne and a friend of Father Wadsworth.

Most fittingly the Requiem Mass (Tridentine) will be offered at St. Ann's, Burlington Street, by Fr. Wadsworth at St. Ann's on Thursday 29. January at 10.00a.m. to be followed by burial at Dukinfield Cemetery.

May he rest in peace.
