Father Stephen Maughan

News is spreading that Father Stephen Maughan will be leaving York shortly to become the parish priest of the combined parishes of Loftus, Brotton and Staithes. The date of his move is not yet known. I am sure that everyone that has attended the Sunday evening Masses that Fr Maughan has said or sung for us at the Church of the English Matryrs in York will wish him well in his new appointment.

Nothing has been said officially, but it is rumoured that Bishop Drainey wants the usus antiquior Masses in York to continue. It is probable that Fr Maughan will visit York on at least one Sunday each mouth and that some other provision will be made on the other Sundays. We must be grateful to Bishop Drainey for his concern for the followers of the traditional Mass.
