Yesterday, being the first Wednesday of the month, there was a usus antiquior Mass at the Church of St Charlers Borromeo in Hull. The attendance was slightly down, but nevertheless there were still more than 20 there, which was not too bad. Maybe it was the lure of Christmas shopping that kept some people away, or it might have been that some people simply forgot about it.
It is important that a good attendance is maintained, as it is my intention, before too long, to make the case to Bishop Drainey for a regular Sunday Mass in Hull. It is likely that Bishop Drainey will require evidence that any Sunday Masses in the usus antiquior will be well attended, and a good track record of attendance at weekday Masses would be one way of doing this.
