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.

New Era in York

As from the first Sunday of Advent (that is next Sunday 1st December) there will be a Latin Low Mass at 5pm every Sunday in the Church of St Wilfrid in York.  It will be followed by Rosary and Benediction at 6pm.   This replaces the 4pm Mass at the Church of the English Martyrs in York which is now discontinued.

This development follows the arrival of Oratorian fathers at St Wilfrid's Church and the expectation that a permanent Oratory will be erected there.  It puts the Latin Mass in York on a much firmer basis, as we can now be sure of there being a priest each week.

Unfortunately, car parking is much more difficult at St Wilfrid's Church.  There is a small car park opposite the theatre in St Leonards, which I believe costs £3.50 for two hours.  Alternatively, it is possible to use the park and ride service.

At this point, I would like to express gratitude to Fr Bane at English Martyrs' Church for accommodating the Latin Mass in the last few years; and also to our celebrants, Fr David Smith, Fr James Callagan and Fr Strphen Maughan, who have served us very well.

Just a quick note to add to the information re car parks. There is also a council car park on Esplanade just the other side of the River Ouse, literally by the riverside near Lendal Bridge. This is only a few minutes walk away from the church. Also only a few minutes away on the West/South bank of the river is Limited (as in spaces, not time) parking on Tanner Row and further up North Street.

A further note re car parks. If you're lucky enough to be a York resident. Get yourself a residents badge from the council. You will only have to pay for parking (reduced rates) up to 6pm. Parking after this time is free for badge holders.
