There is an interesting development concerning the Latin Mass in the hamlet of Withermarsh Green, which is in the south eastern corner of Suffolk. Bishop Alan Hopes of East Anglia has invited Fr Henry Whisenant to set up a Latin Mass Chaplaincy based at the very small church of Our Lady Immaculate and St Edmund. The church and presbytery were sold by the diocese more than a decade ago, and are now privately owned. By good fortune, they were purchased by Catholics, and the church remains a consecrated Catholic Church, albeit little used.
I understand that Fr Whisenant will be saying a Mass there on the Feast of the Assumption (Sat 15th August) and that there will be a weekly Sunday Mass. No doubt, daily Masses will follow.
This is the first time in England and Wales that a bishop has allocated a diocesan priest to be a Latin Mass Chaplain exclusively to promote the Latin Mass in his diocese. Fr Whisenant is a relatively young priest and an enthusiast for the Latin Mass, so there is every prospect of the venture being a success.
The church, which is a Grade II Listed Building, is of a fairly basic design, but none the less very attractive. It remains unaffected by Vatican II innovations, but I understand lacks many of the items required for the traditional liturgy. It looks like this inside:
