Developments in Hull

I am pleased to announce that regular Latin Masses are to be established in Hull. Following discussions with Bishop Drainey, it has been decided that there will be a Low Mass on the first Wednesday of each month at 6.30pm in the Church of St Charles. This is the principal church in Hull and is in a central location. The celebrant will be Fr Peter Mulholland. This provision will start on Wednesday 6th May, so there is a little time to wait. Fr Mulholland has celebrated Mass in the usus antiquior on a few occasions at the Church of St Francis of Assisi, and many years ago I attended a Mass of his at Ugthorpe in the north of the diocese. Bishop Drainey has said that this Mass will be provided ad experimentum for a period of six months. By this I understand that he intends to review the provision later in the year, in the light of the reports he gets of how many people are attending. Thus it is essential that this Mass is well attended if it is to continue in the longer term. My ultimate objective is to achieve a regular Sunday Mass in Hull. At the moment this looks difficult, as the diocese is not able to supply a priest with time to say a Mass on Sundays. In all probability, the priest would have to travel from some distant location, and this could only be justified if there was a sizable congregation. On way to prove the demand for a Sunday Mass would be to have good numbers at the weekday Masses, so it is over to you.
