Visit of Bishop Rifan

Bishop Fernando Rifan, leader of the Apostolic Prelature of St John Vianny in Campos Brazil, will be visiting the British Isles during the Summer.  We are fortunate that he will be celebrating two Masses that may be convenient for people living in the north of England.

At 3pm on Saturday 30th June, there will be a Pontifical High Mass at the Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Harrogate Road, Moortown, Leeds, LS17 6LE.

The following day, Sunday 1st July, Bishop Rifan will celebrate a Pontifical High Mass as part of the Latin Mass Society's annual pilgrimage to Holywell.  The Mass will be at 2.30pm in the church of St Winifrid and will be followed by a procession to St Winifrid's Well, where there will be devitions.  The day will end with Benediction in the church.

Bishop Rifan will then be travelling to Scotland and Ireland, before returning to London to attend and address the AGM of the Latin Mass Society on Saturday 7th July.  He will be celebrating Mass in St George's Cathedral, Southwark at 11am and the AGM will follow after a buffet lunch in the Amego Hall.  More about this later.
