The purpose of this blog is to provide an open forum for discussion of the aims of the society; news from the wider Church and details of Masses and events of interest in the diocese. The Latin Mass Society in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough expresses its full filial devotion and loyalty to Holy Mother Church, Pope Francis and Bishop Drainey.

There will be a sung Mass at 6pm at St Wilfrid's Church in York on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. I understand that this will be the last occasion that the choral scholars will be singing before the Christmas break, which is a very good reason for attending.
The annual Requiem Mass for Bishop Wheeler, Bishop of Leeds from 1966 to 1985, will take place in St Anne's Cathedral, Great George Street, Leeds, LS2 8BE on Saturday 19th November at 3pm. It will be a Sung Requiem followed by absolutions at the catafalque, with music provided by the Schola Gregoriana. Fr Michael Hall will be the celebrant.
Bishop Wheeler did a great deal to support the Latin Mass in the Leeds Diocese in the years following the Second Vatican Council, at a time when provision on other dioceses was scant or non-existant.
