Latin Masses in Hedon

Starting on 10th December 2017, there will be a monthly Sunday Mass at the Church of St Mary and St Joseph in Hedon, to the East of hull.  It will be at 5pm on the second Sunday of each month, with Fr Mark Drew as celebrant.

This has been made possible because Fr Drew will be moving to Hedon in October.

It is to be hoped that this new venture will be sufficiently well supported to justify an increase in the frequency.

It has been my ambition for a long time to to have regular Sunday Masses in the Hull area, but the lack of priests willing and able to say Mass in the extraordinary form has prevented this up until now. We must be very grateful to Fr Drew for providing this opportunity.

Walsingham Pilgrimage

The Latin Mass Society's annual pilgrimage to Walsingham will be taking place over the August Bank Holiday weekend.  Those intending to walk from Ely to Walsingham (58 miles) will assemble at Ely on the evening of Thursday 24th August, where overnight accommodation is provided.  The walk takes two and a half days, with pilgrims arriving at the shrine in Walsingham at about noon on the Sunday.

There will be Solemn Mass at 2pm in the Chapel of Reconciliation, followed by a procession along the Holy Mile to the Abbey grounds where there will be further devotions, which will end at about 5pm.

Bookings for the walking pilgrimage are made on line via the Latin Mass Society website.  There is no need for anyone wishing to attend only the Solemn Mass and Procession in Walsingham to book.

Supporters of the Latin Mass are encouraged to make their own way to Walsingham on the Sunday.
