Farewell High Mass for Fr Bede Rowe


St Bede the Venerable - Patron of Historians

The scheduled Mass at St Dominic's, Dursley next Sunday, 7th September, at 5:30 pm will be a High Mass celebrated by Fr Bede Rowe with refreshments afterwards.  This will be Fr Bede's last Mass in the Clifton Diocese for the foreseeable future, apart from the LMS Glastonbury Pilgrimage on the next day, so please do come along to bid him a fond farewell.  As many of you will know Fr Bede has been on secondment for the past three years at Chavagnes International College in France.  He returned in July but at the moment there is no role for him within the Diocese.  Fr Bede is a great exponent of the Latin Mass and during his time at St George's in Warminster became something of a rallying point for the priests within the Diocese who celebrated the Latin Mass.  He will become the private chaplain in Great Swinburne in Northumberland and will be going to Durham to take a PhD, he will be sorely missed.  Please pray for him and for all our priests who courageously bring us the Latin Mass.

Pictures of the LMS High Mass held in Westminster Cathedral on the Feast of St John Gualbert, Abbott


The Latin Mass Society held its Annual General Meeting on 12th July '14 in London.  This was followed by a High Mass on the High Altar at Westminster Cathedral.  The Mass was celebrated by the Rev Anthony Glaysher, Regional Chaplain of the LMS. The Mass was sung by the Lay Clerks of Westminster Cathedral.  The Gospel reading was Matt 5: 43-48.  The Mass was very well attended.

Pictures of Chartres Pilgrimage 2014 (Part 3)







Pictures of Chartres Pilgrimage 2014 (Part 2)






Pictures of Chartres Pilgrimage 2014 (Part 1)


The annual Paris to Chartres pilgrimage took place over the Pentecost weekend 7 - 9 June. There appeared to be a better turnout than last year and the British chapters were up in numbers, including several from the Clifton Diocese.  We were fortunate to have two priests per chapter with the National Chaplain Fr Martin Edwards and Fr Gerard Byrne with Our Lady of Walsingham (adult) chapter and Fr Mark Withoos and Fr Alex Redman (from St Dominic's, Dursley) with the Juventutem (youth) chapter under the patronage of Saint Alban. Fr Bede Rowe the Chaplain at Chavagnes International College, France and also from Clifton Diocese led the Chavagnes Scouts chapter.  The LMS President Dr Joseph Shaw and Jamie Bogle President of Una Voce International were also on the pilgrimage.

The weather was mixed over the three days with periods of bright hot sunshine and temperatures in excess of 30 degrees Celsius, hail showers, thunder and lightning and storms with torrential rain. Doubtless to say it made walking difficult at times especially through the mud!

Overall, however, the whole experience was spiritually uplifting and many graces were received during the pilgrimage.

Please see below some of the photographs of the pilgrimage and who knows you might be inspired to go next year?

Please keep Fr Kevin in your prayers.

 

The Mass due to be held on Saturday 21st June 2014 at The Holy Redeemer Church, Salisbury has had to be cancelled, but has been re-arranged for Saturday 28th June 2014 at 11.30 am. Any inconvenience is regretted.
