More on the Margaret Clithwerow Procession

One of the things that impressed me about the procession through the streets of York, was the respect shown by bystanders, most of whom would probably never have seen such a procession before. Many were obviously tourists, and they were easily identified by their keenness to take photographs. With very few exceptions, the general public were extremely courteous, usually moving out of the way to allow the procession to pass through the very narrow streets. Of course, the procession passed a number of pubs, and it was outside these that the odd cat call or mocking remark was heard. Very close to the end, the procession passed in front of the door of a pub, temporally blocking the entrance. As I was passing, a rather hefty and heavily tattooed man was emerging who appeared a little the worse for drink. I expected trouble, but was surprised to see that he, and a woman who was with him, held back in the doorway and joined in saying the rosary.

I attended the tridentine Mass at St. Wilfrid's in York recently and noted that there were 2 other LMS Masses in the city. Could you please tell me how much provision there is in York or thereabouts for regular Tridentine Masses and where these take place?

Many thanks, Irene.

In York itself, the only Masses are at St. Wilfrid's. These take place every Sunday at 5pm and traditional Holy Days at 6pm.
