Ushaw College to Close

Fr Brown has just posted that Ushaw College is to close in 2011. No date is given except that it is said that the current students will complete their year of studies.

The Latin Mass Society has a booking to hold a Priests training Conference at Ushaw next August. It is not clear whether conference bookings beyond the end of the summer term will be honoured or not. We shall have to wait to see what happens.

There is a slightly puzzling paragraph at the end of the press release:

"We have long tried to find a development partner and it would be nice to believe that a partner will still come forward with a viable business plan but unfortunately time is running out and we have to face the realityof the situation we are in."

This would imply that a final decision has not yet been made. Is it possible to put together a group of people who would fill the role of development partner?
