I am delighted to say that there will be an evening offering an introduction to plainchant at St Bede`s, Catholic Road, Jarrow, (NE32 3LX) on May 18th 7-9pm. This is being run by our diocesan liturgist, Fr Adrian Dixon, parish priest of St Joseph`s and St Wilfrid`s, Gateshead. Fr Dixon took over in 2005 saying the weekly Sunday Mass in the extraordinary form which I had introduced, with the then required permission of bishop Ambrose Griffiths, as parish priest in that parish.
I hope there is a good turn out for this event as it`s encouraging to see such things coming from the diocesan liturgy office. Congratulations also to Fr Dixon who celebrated his silver jubilee of ordination on 20th April.
