Priest and Server Training

In Low Week, the Latin Mass Society will be organising its tenth conference for the training of priests and servers wishing to study the older form of the Roman Rite.  It will run from Tuesday 29th April to Friday 2nd May, and be held at Belmont Abbey, near Hereford.

Separate courses will be run in Low Mass, Missa Cantata and Solemn Mass, so there will be something for all levels of ability, including complete beginners.  For priests attending the conference, tuition will be given by priests who are experienced in celebrating Mass in its usus antiquior form, and the teaching of servers will generally be undertaken by laymen.

Seminarians will be especially welcome at the conference, with those in the more junior years learning to serve and more senior students studying the roles of sub-deacon, deacon and celebrant.  This year, seminarians will be able to join the conference completely free of charge.

For priests and other laymen, the fee has been set at £100, with a concessionary rate of £50 for full time students.  These rates include full board and lodging.  For further details and application form, go the website of the Latin Mass Society.
