There will be a Sung Latin Mass in the Usus antiquior at 7.30pm on Tuesday 2nd February at the Church of the Most Holy Sacrament, Marton, to mark the Feast of Candlemas. Marton is a hamlet about seven miles to the northeast of Hull, and well off the beaten track. The postcode HU11 4LN may be useful for those trying to find it by satnav.
The church was built in 1789, and is the second oldest in the diocese. It replaced various rooms and buildings around the Burton Constable Estate which were used for the celebration of Mass during penal times. The modest church was built three years before the Second Catholic Relief Act of 1791, and attached to the back of an existing farm house so that it could not be seen from the road. It also had a moat for additional security.
The celebrant will be Fr Mark Drew who has recently been appointed as Priest in Charge of the parish of the Sacred Heart in Hornsea, which includes the Marton church.
