Sunday 13th November


There will be a Low Mass at the Church of the English Martyrs in York at 4pm on Sunday 13th November.  Fr Maughan will be the celebrant.

The attendance at the last York Mass, celebrated by Fr James Callaghan OSB on 23rd October, was good with a very respectable collection.   We need to keep this up, so please come if you can and encourage others to do the same.
