At 2pm on Saturday 2nd March, Mgr Gordon Read, National Chaplain to the LMS, will be celebrating a Solemn Mass in Westminster Cathedral. It will be the Votive Mass, pro eligendo Summo Pontifice (for the election of a Pope).
Although a Mass at Westminster Cathedral on this date has been planned for some time, the resignation and Pope Benedict, and the expected calling of a conclave for later in March, has given the event added significance. Furthermore, I understand that there is a possibility that the Mass will be televised, and therefore reach a wider, possibly worldwide, audience. The Latin Mass Society will do all that it can to make this a memorable event.
Please consider attending this Mass if it is at all possible.
