FSSP Mass in Warrington

This falls slightly outside the remit of a “Bedford Latin Mass” blog, but we were lucky enough to have Fr de Malleray and Marcus Williams here in Bedford a few weeks ago – they are now opening the latest frontier of the FSSP, in Warrington. More details of the inaugural Mass are here, along with some beautiful photos:

Dominican Rite, 22nd November

Fr. Thomas Crean OP, from the Dominican priory in Leicester, was kind enough to say Mass on 22nd November. The Dominican rite is slightly different from the Extraordinary Roman Rite (see here for more details) and thanks also to go Nicholas for serving expertly! And while we are talking about serving – classes are available for anyone who would like to learn – please just contact us for more details.

Fr. Crean returns on 13th December.

Mass takes place every week at 830am. Tea, coffee (and cakes) are in the hall next door to the church afterwards. All are welcome!

Some directions:

– There is ample car parking space, and it’s easily reachable both from the north and the south (MK42 0SP for sat nav devices)

– Christ the King is a brisk half hour walk from Bedford Mainline station, or else a short taxi. If you need a lift, please get in touch – bedfordlatinmass@gmail.com. Someone will always be able to give you a lift back to the station.

We were delighted to welcome Fr. Cyril Law to Bedford for the first (but hopefully not the last!) time. He celebrated a Requiem Mass for Remembrance Sunday, of which some pictures are below.

Weekly Latin Mass in Bedford – going strong!

After less than three months in existence, the Traditional Latin Mass in Bedford is going very well indeed.  57 people were at Christ the King Church, Bedford, on Sunday 26th October.

We were delighted to welcome Fr. Armand de Malleray FSSP, who is on his way to Warrington to establish the next FSSP outpost.

He was joined by Seminarian Marcus Williams, who is the 6th FSSP cleric in the UK. More are on the way! http://www.fssp.org/uk has all the details, as well as the excellent magazine “Dowry“.

And all the Sundays until the end of the year are now filled – Deo Gratias! So do please spread the word and join us in this growing community. Fr. Patrick and the congregation have been extremely welcoming and our heartfelt thanks go to them as well as to Bishop Doyle.

Latin Mass in Bedford!

With the kind permission of Bishop Peter Doyle, and welcomed by parish priest Fr. Patrick Hutton, from August 16th 2015 there is now a weekly Traditional Latin Mass every Sunday at 8:30am, at Christ the King Church, Harrowden Road, Bedford MK42 0SP.

Tea, coffee (and cakes) are in the hall next door to the church afterwards. All are welcome!

Some directions:

– There is ample car parking space, and it’s easily reachable both from the north and the south (MK42 0SP for sat nav devices)

– Christ the King is a brisk half hour walk from Bedford Mainline station, or else a short taxi. If you need a lift, please get in touch – bedfordlatinmass@gmail.com. Someone will always be able to give you a lift back to the station.

We address especially the young people: In an epoch when in some areas, as you know, the Latin language and the human values are less appreciated, you must joyfully accept the patrimony of the language which the Church holds in high esteem and must, with energy, make it fruitful. The well-known words of Cicero, “It is not so much excellent to know Latin, as it is a shame not to know it” [Non tam praeclarum est scire Latine, quam turpe nescire (Brutus, xxxvii.140)] in a certain sense are directed to you. We exhort you all to lift up high the torch of Latin which is even today a bond of unity among peoples of all nations.
