Celebration Everywhere

On Friday 14th September, the feast of the Exhaultation of the Holy Cross, I had to decide which Mass at attend. I could have gone to Scunthorpe where Fr Cahill offered a Massa Cantata; but decided to go to St Chad's in Manchester for a Solemn High Mass to a Mozart setting. At the end we sang the Te Deum. It was marvellous with a very respectable congregation of about 100.

On Saturday 15th, I drove to Walsingham for the Latin Mass Society's pilgrimage. We said the full rosary as we walked from the village to the Catholic Shrine at the Slipper Chapel. Then there was a Solemn High Mass in the Chapel of Reconsiliation with plainsong setting, Cum Jubilo, followed by another Te Deum.

This evening I shall be going to the Church of the English Martyrs in York, where Fr Hudson will be celebrating a Missa Cantata, followed by the singing of Christus Vincit.

Of course, there have bee celebratory Masses all over the place, most notably at the Brompton Oratory.
