Vespers Gaining in Popularity

A record number of people attended Vespers at St Wilfrid's Church in York yesterday.  The attendance has gradually grown since Vespers were introduced.

For the first time polyphonic music was introduced to Vespers yesterday, with alternate verses of the hymn being sung by the choral scholars.

I would urge anyone who is not familiar with Vespers to go along and  experience it.  It is at 6pm every Sunday, and is followed by Benediction.

Next Latin Mass in Hull

The next Latin Massto be held in Hull will be on 6th April.  Fr Mulholland will be away at that time, so Fr Mark Drew will be the celebrant.  I shall also be away, but there will  be a server.

The Mass will be at 6.30pm at the Church of St Charles in Jarratt St.
