I regret to inform you of the recent death of Fr. Fred Watson of Salmesbury, whose beautiful church was home to the traditional Mass for many years. I remember Fr. Watson when he was PP at St. Patrick's in Walton le Dale and his early days as PP at St. John Southworth's when he first offered his regular Masses under the old indult. May he rest in peace.

On a cheerful note Fr. Henry is offering Mass on Shrove Tuesday at noon for the feast of the Holy Face of Jesus. This will be at his parish of St. Catherine's, Stanifield Lane, Farington, Leyland.
