Study Day for Priests with Dr Alcuin Reid in Hexham and Newcastle

I am pleased to be able to forward this information:

The local Latin Mass Society is organising a study day on the Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum, of Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday 24th October in either Newcastle or Gateshead. The main speaker, we are very proud to say, is the distinguished liturgical scholar, Dr Alcuin Reid author of `The Organic Development of the Liturgy` (Click here for a review of the book by the then Cardinal Ratzinger.)

We would like to invite you all to this day. Numbers will be limited and we do require names no later than Thursday 20th September.
Provisionally, the day will run from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. There may be a small charge for lunch/refreshments as a contribution towards expenses.

I am only sorry that I won`t be able to make it.

UPDATE: 13.09.07 a comment on the Fr Zuhldorf`s blog reads:
There is no one better to lead such a seminar than the Rev. Dr. Reid. No one else combines his encyclopedic knowledge with such a gentlemanly, unpretentious demeanor. This man has forgotten more than most of us who love the Extraordinary Form will ever know. Priests should run to sign up for this opportunity.
