The purpose of this blog is to provide an open forum for discussion of the aims of the society; news from the wider Church and details of Masses and events of interest in the diocese. The Latin Mass Society in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough expresses its full filial devotion and loyalty to Holy Mother Church, Pope Francis and Bishop Drainey.

TRAINING OF PRIESTS

The Latin Mass Society is organising a conference at St Cuthberts College, Ushaw at which priests will receive training in the celebration of the Mass in the usus antiquior. It is open to all priests, but priests of the northern dioceses are particularly welcome. Bookings are coming in steadily, but alas, none have been received so far from priests of the Middlesbrough Diocese. This is a great shame because Bishop Drainey is supportive of moves to improve the provision of traditional rite Masses in the diocese.

It is a regrettable fact that in this diocese, we are desparately short of priests able to celebrate Mass in the older form. In fact we are at the bottom of the league. Even smaller dioceses like Hallam, Menevia and Wrexham do better than us in this respect. If you know of a priest who you think might be interested, please suggest to him that he attends the conference. They need some encouragement.

The conference is from Mon 20th to Thurs 23rd April, and the fee for attending is £85. The magnificent St Cuthbert's Chapel will be used for all the liturgies and the rural setting is just perfect.
