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.

USA Sets an Example

I read in New Liturgical Movement that the Sacred Heart Seminary in the Archdiocese of Detroit will be holding a four day workshop on the Extraordinary form of the Mass.  Members of the Society of St John Cantius will be presenting the workshop which will be open to senior seminarians, seminary staff and priests of the diocese.

It is interesting to see that seminary staff are specially mentioned.  One presumes that this is to enable the Extraordinary Form to continue to be taught to seminarians in future years.

This follows the example of Bishop Morlino of Maddison, who has expressed the desire that all priests of the diocese should be able to offer the Mass in the Extraordinary Form.

The bishops of the USA, or at least some of them, do seem to be leading the way.  Maybe, one day, the bishops of England and Wales will follow.
