News from Rome


Earlier today it was announced in Rome that the Holy Father has lifted the excommunications on the four bishops consecrated by the late Archbishop Lefebvre in June 1988.

I know a lot of good people who hear Mass in SSPX churches and chapels and I am delighted for them at this news.

I have recently learned that Mgr. Wach of the Institute of Christ the King will be visiting England on Sunday 1st March, and accompanying Fr. Hudson on his Sunday rounds. I am sure Father Hudson would appreciate a good turnout.
I shall be posting news of this momentous occasion to members in the vicinity and reminding you by way of updates over the next few days.

I have also received wonderful news that there will be a day of prayer at the Holy Name for vocations starting with the 11.00a.m. Ordinary Form Mass to be followed by exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and concluding with Missa cantata in the Extraordinary Form at 4.00p.m. on Sunday 13th. February. This will be the third Sunday of February.

I must confess to not being able to upload pictures of last night's Mass at Bury, I will keep trying.

Reminder that there is Mass on Thursday at St. Osmund's , Long Lane, Breightmet, Bolton at 7.15p.m.

God bless Pope Benedict XVI
