Church of St Charles in Hull

I attended the Latin Mass held on the Feast of the Ascension at St Charles' Church in Hull.  According to my count, the congregation numbered 41, which I thought was good.

A great deal of money has been spent on the church recently to repair the roof, which had been leaking for years, and causing further damage. The exterior of the church is now looking well, but it is evident that there is plenty more work to be done on the inside.  Much of the plaster in the side aisles is decayed and falling away.

The parish priest, Fr Benfield, said to me that he thought that it was the perfect setting for the Latin Mass.  

It is a fine church, with very elaborate decorations in the centre of Hull.  Let us hope that the money can be found to fully restore it, and that there will be many more Latin Masses there.

Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to visit this beautiful church but here's hoping as the Covid restrictions become less stringent.
