The Leeds LMS blog`s had a post a few days ago concerning a training conference for the Extraordinary Form to be held at Ushaw in February from Tuesday 17th. - Friday 20th. Apparently this will not be instead of the Oxford training conference.
I`m glad something is happening on this front after the one day conference planned for last year was cancelled. In many ways Ushaw is an ideal setting and with its many side altars should make priests` Masses easier than at Oxford. I can think of a good number of well-qualified priests from the Northern Province who I hope will help out.
Let`s hope it will appeal to priests who are at present curious about the EF but uncertain as to how to proceed.
Here`s what the Leeds LMS blog says:
The LMS Committee agreed today to sponsoring its first Northern Conference to train Priests in offering the 1962 Rite of Mass. Mr. Waddington, who acknowledged my own input in the proposal presented the paper which was received enthusiastically for a variety of diverse reasons.
The Conference is scheduled to take place in February in one of the most northerly English Dioceses. Issues and suggestions raised by the clergy who attended Merton in the Summer will be addressed at this Conference as good practice demands.
This Conference is not instead of the Oxford Conference but in addition to it.
