Latin Masses in Bristol

There has been a rumour going around that a Traditional Latin Mass is to be celebrated at St Bonaventure's Church in Bristol this Sunday, 4th June. Father Tom Smith, the Parish Priest, would like to make clear that this is not the case.

Negotiations are still under way to start a new regular Latin Mass in Bristol. We hope to be able to make an announcement in the near future.

Final Mass at Holy Cross


As previously announced, the Parish Church of Holy Cross, Bedminster, Bristol, is to close this Sunday, 26th February 2017. The final Mass in the church will be the regular 12:30pm Traditional Latin Low Mass. All are welcome to attend.



It is fitting that the very first, and very last, Masses to be offered in this beautiful church will have been in the timeless Traditional Form of the Roman Rite. A strong regular congregation has built up at this Mass in recent years, and we would like to thank Fr Andrew Goodman for his service, and also the parishioners for making us welcome in their parish.

By the grace of God, the Traditional Mass at Holy Cross has led one congregant, Seth Phipps, to discern his vocation to the Sacred Priesthood. Seth has now been in formation at the Seminary of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Denton, Nebraska, since 2011, and was recently ordained to the subdiaconate. God willing, he will be ordained to the Priesthood next year.

At the parish meeting on Thursday 9th February, Bishop Declan Lang confirmed that he is carrying out negotiations with a view to continuing provision of the Traditional Mass at another church in the city. We hope to have more news on this soon.

In the meantime, Fr Alexander Redman, parish priest at Our Lady of Lourdes, Weston-Super-Mare, has announced that he is to begin offering the Latin Mass at 12 noon every Sunday, at his parish church (28 Baytree Road, Weston-Super-Mare, Bristol BS22 8HQ). We are grateful to Fr Redman for offering this opportunity, and hope that many of you will be able to attend.

Update on Latin Masses in Clifton Diocese

Given the situation at Holy Cross Church in Bristol there have been some discussions about the future of the Extraordinary Form Mass in Bristol and the nearby area among the Diocese, priests and also the faithful who attend these Masses.

We are very encouraged that the Diocese and our Bishop are keen to ensure that Extraordinary Form Masses in Bristol will be continued on Sundays, and also agreeing to more permanent Masses in the area. Here is the update so far. Please also be patient whilst these discussions and review are being carried out. Visit this website for updates. 

Bristol 
The last Latin Mass at Holy Cross Church will be on Sunday 26th February. At the parish  meeting at Holy Cross on 9th February 2017, Bishop Declan informed us that he is carrying out negotiations regarding the continuation of Traditional Masses in Bristol. An announcement is expected shortly.

Weston-super-Mare – Weekly Sunday Mass is now confirmed.
Following consultation with the Bishop, we are pleased to announce that from the beginning of March the Latin Mass will be offered every Sunday at 12 noon, at Our Lady of Lourdes, 28 Baytree Road, Weston-super-Mare BS22 8HQ. 
We expect these Masses to continue even after the Bristol Mass is confirmed. We are grateful to Bishop Declan and to Fr Redman for this new arrangement  for Masses in Weston-super-Mare.
