Today I received an email with information about a retreat for priests `to celebrate the Year of the priesthood with St John Mary Vianney, Curé of Ars`. The theme is `The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and our priestly identification to Christ.` It starts on Monday 13th July 2009, 3pm and ends at 12 noon Thursday 16th July 2009. It is organised by Fr de Malleray of the FSSP and priests will be able to celebrate their Masses in the Extraordinary Form.
This blog has been rather quiet since the Ushaw meeting which had a profound affect on me and, I know, on others. This looks like a good event to follow on from that conference although this is purely a retreat and not a training session for the Extraordinary Form.
Any priests interested in going can book by sending a £15 cheque made payable to ‘FSSP England’ to : Fr Armand de Malleray, FSSP, 179 Elgar Rd, RG2 0DH, Reading, Berkshire, UK.
The full cost is £107 - to cover:
1-Accommodation: single room with en-suite bathroom, full board: £92, full board, including VAT.
2-Retreat Master’s expenses: £15.
