Fr Andrew Goodman celebrated a beautiful Low Mass on Sunday 23rd October at St Alphege’s Church in Bath. This Grade II* church, built for the Benedictines of Downside Abbey by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in the 1920s, evokes the early Christian churches of Rome and provides a wonderful setting for the Mass.
There is a stable group of between 30 and 40 people in and around Bath who are attached to the Extraordinary Form. No doubt more would start attending if the Mass were offered on a regular basis. Unfortunately it is unlikely that there will be another EF Mass at St Alphege’s in the next few months, but we hope to establish it more regularly in 2012.
