Sunday 18th January

Next Sunday will be a special occasion for the Parish of St Wilfrid in York. The mid-day Latin Mass will commemorate Fr Joseph Vaz, the Oratorian priest canonised by Pope Francis earlier this week in Sri Lanka. Fr Richard Duffield has been in Sri Lanka for the canonisation, and I am sure that he will have plenty to say about his experiences there.
