Lest anyone hadn`t realised this Saturday, 20th November, there will be a Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form at St Mary`s Cathedral in Newcastle at 11.30am. Many thanks to the Dean, Fr Leighton, for giving his permission. The celebrant will be Fr Swales, Fr Phillips will be deacon and I will be subdeacon. There will be clergy in sitting in choir too so if any priests would like to join them do bring the requisite gear. The music will be by the Jarrow Schola and the choir of St George`s, Cullercoats (who will sing Victoria`s O Quam Gloriosum` Mass). Many thanks to the local LMS for their help in organising this Mass.
We hope for a good turnout for this Mass in the newly refurbished cathedral. The picture above is from the previous Extraordinary Form Mass held at the cathedral a few years ago.
