Good News from Australia
Archbishop Denis Hart of Melbourne has erected a personal parish for the traditional Mass community in his archdiocese. It is based in Caulfield, which is a suburb of Melbourne. The parish will formally be designated the Parish of Blessed John Henry Newman and Fr Tattersall will be appointed Parish Priest. The church has hitherto been under the patronage of St Aloysius and is a fine building in the neo-gothic style. Two Latin Masses are offered each Sunday. In this regard, Australia is ahead of England, as no personal parish for the traditional rites has been erected here. The nearest that we have is a shrine church in New Brighton, but this is not a parish.
