Mass Suspended Because it is Too Popular

The Winter issue of Mass of Ages has been published, and it includes a good number of news items.  One that caught my eye concerns Prinknash Abbey in the Diocese of Clifton.  For some years, a Latin Mass has been offered at Prinknash Abbey on Saturdays and due to demand, this became a Sunday Mass.

Of course, this Mass was suspended during the first lockdown, but resumed when the restrictions were eased.  However, the Mass proved so popular that the numbers wishing to attend could not be accommodated, especially with social distancing.  Consequently, the Mass had to be suspended again, this time because it was too popular!
