Tonight at 7.30pm Fr Elkin, parish priest of St Mary`s, Barnard Castle, Co. Durham, will celebrate a sung Mass in the Extraordinary Form to mark his Golden Jubilee of priestly ordination. Father returned to celebrating the Mass of his ordination in the 1990`s. He was part of the rota for the Sunday Masses at St Dominic`s, Newcastle for a while and introduced the EF into his parish at Ryhope, Sunderland. He has continued this in Barnard Castle with a Sunday Mass in the EF. Father was also a tutor at the recent, magnificent, LMS training conference at Ushaw where on the second day he celebrated a Missa Cantata.
Ad multos annos!
