St Walburge, Preston

I traveled to Preston on Sunday to attend the Pontifical Low Mass celebrated by Bishop Campbell.  Bishop Campbell will soon reach retirement age, so there may not be many more opportunities to see Bishop Campbell in action.  As one would expect, the Mass was exactly as one would expect a Pontifical Low Mass to be, although the choir did sing some hymns and there was exemplary organ playing.

After Mass, Bishop Campbell was available to talk to anyone who approached him, and most did.  He gave the impression of being really pleased to be at St Walburge's.  Indeed, I would not be surprised if it the church of the diocese that he likes visiting most.
