Low Mass in Bath, 23rd October

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.

LMS Ordo

The 2012 LMS Ordo is also available for sale.

The Ordo is a day-to-day liturgical guide for the Missal of 1962 (Extraordinary Form).

It gives liturgical details of every Mass for every day of the year for the universal calendar. It also gives detailed information for the Dioceses of England and Wales (the only Traditional Ordo, that we are aware of, that offers this extra information). It is an indispensable guide for priests, servers and laity.

Includes guidance, confirmed by the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei regarding Holy Day celebrations in the Traditional Rite. 98 pages, including 22 pages of liturgical notes and full discussion of Indulgences.

It costs £6.50.
