It has recently been announced that the Church of St Joseph in Pakington Street, Bradford, is to become the principal church in the Diocese of Leeds for the celebration of Mass in the Extraordinary Form. Making the announcement, Bishop Marcus Stock said that he had made the decision in response to numerous requests for a regular Extraordinary Form Sunday Mass at an easily accessible location in the Diocese.
It is expected that the new arrangements will start in September, and that there will be a sung Latin Mass every Sunday at 12.30pm. It is probable that a roster of priests will be drawn up to celebrate this Mass, and it is not clear yet what impact the new arrangements will have on Latin Masses currently being celebrated in the diocese. Neither is it clear whether the church will be used for other traditional devotions besides the Sunday Mass.
