The next is about the first Masses of Fr Harkins:
· Cardinal Primate to attend First Solemn High Mass of newly ordained British priest Fr Simon Harkins, FSSP, in St. Mary's Metropolitan Cathedral, Picardy Place, Edinburgh, on Saturday 5th June 2010, at 1pm. His Eminence Keith Patrick Cardinal O'Brien will be in attendance and will preach the homily. This is the first time in the UK and possibly in the world that a Cardinal Primate will attend a First Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite in his own diocesan cathedral and preach. The St Andrews Camerata will sing Joseph Haydn’s ‘Missa in tempore belli’ also known as ‘Kettledrum Mass’. Very Rev Frs Josef Bisig and Franz-Karl Banauch, Rectors of the international seminaries of the Fraternity of St Peter in America and in Europe, will be in attendance, as well as many other clergy.
· If you live too far south the Hadrian‘s Wall, you are welcome in London instead on Saturday 12th June 2010 at St James, Spanish Place, 22 George Street, W1U 3QY, where, kindly welcomed by Parish Priest Fr Christopher Colven, Fr Simon Harkins, FSSP will offer his first Solemn High Mass in England – starting at 3pm. Director of Music at St James Spanish Place Dr Terry Worroll will conduct Tomás Luis de Victoria’s ‘Missa Simile est regnum coelorum’ and the ‘Gaude Virgo Maria’ motet also by Victoria. Refreshments afterwards. Nearest underground: Baker Street, Bond Street. Please come and pray in thanksgiving for a new British priest (formed according to the usus antiquior). Deo gratias.
Thanks to Fr de Malleray for the news. I look forward to seeing the pictures of these Masses.
