I travelled to St Mary's Church in Warrington yesterday for the first Solemn Mass of Fr James Mawdsley. It was a great occasion with a good sized congregation, and very good singing of Byrd's Mass in Five Parts.
Afterwards food was laid on in the rectory garden, which provided the opportunity to talk to several interesting people. Among them were four FSSP seminarians, from England and Wales. It really is a joy to meet these young men who, deus vult, will one day be serving as priests in England. I also had an interesting conversation with Fr de Malleray.
