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.

St Margaret Clitherow and the Martyrs of York

The Latin Mass Society will be holding its annual pilgrimage in honour of St Margaret Clitherow  in York on Saturday 29th March.  As usual, it will begin with Mass at St Wilfrid's Church at 1.30pm and be followed by a procession through the streets of York, taking in The Shambles and Ouse Bridge. 

Rather than continue to the Church of the English Martyrs as in previous years, the procession will return to St Wilfrid's for Benediction at about 4pm.  This change is in response to comments that the procession has been too long in previous years, and will shorten the distance walked considerably.

Another innovation is to include all the Martyrs of York in the dedication of the pilgrimage.  York, as a city, has more Catholic martyrs associated with it than any other in England, and it is appropriate that these should not be forgotten.
