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.

Priest, Deacon and Server Training
Bookings are now open for the Priest, Deacon and Server Training Conference to be held at Prior Park College near Bath from 9th to 12th April. These conferences, organised by the Latin Mass Society, have been held most years since 2007, the year of Summorum Pontificum. Over this period hundreds of priests, deacons, seminarians and laymen have been introduced to, and learned the rubrics of the Latin Mass.
Tuition in celebrating Mass in the Extraordinary Form is given to priests (and soon to be ordained seminarians) in small groups by experienced priests. Low Mass, Missa Cantata and Solemn Mass can be studied according to the requirements of each student, although priests are expected to master Low Mass before moving to the more complicated forms.
Servers are also instructed in small groups according to requirements, and again, they are expected to master Low Mass before progressing to Missa Cantata and Solemn Mass. Most tuition is around an altar, to give a hands on experience.
Prior Park has a beautiful chapel with several side chapels that are well suited to Mass in the Extraordinary Form. There will be a resident choir so that the daily Mass and the other liturgies can be examples of best practice.
Accommodation is in single rooms (not en suite) conveniently located close to the chapel and the dining room. The fee for attending is £120, although there are concessions and seminarians are can attend entirely free. Fuller details and the booking form can be found on the website of the Latin Mass Society. Places are limited so early booking is advised.
