Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”

THURSDAY MASSES - LEARNING THE NEW ENGLISH TEXTS AND MUSIC

from The Roman Missal Copyright ICEL 2010
To assist in learning the texts of the new English translations of Mass, the Thursday 6.45pm Masses in the Lady Chapel at Spanish Place, from now until the first Sunday of Advent, will be celebrated in English.

In order to promote the sung form of Mass, as expressly encouraged by our Holy Father Pope Benedict and the English Bishops, the Masses will be sung as often as numbers attending allow.

Booklets with all the texts and music contained in the new Missal have been specially prepared.

This project was begun at the instigation of Fra' Freddy, the late Grand Prior, who would have encouraged you all to come along to these Masses, not only for the opportunity they afford member of the Order, Companions and friends to attend Mass regularly together, but also to learn the new texts.

Fr Dominic Robinson SJ will be celebrant this first week, 15th September. Thereafter our Chaplain Father David Irwin will preside.
