Correction to list of Masses at Blackfen

The latest Mass of Ages magazine from the Latin Mass Society continues the high standard established by the new editor. It is well worth subscribing to; if you are a parish priest, you might want to get a few copies to put at the back of the Church.

This list of Masses is now incorporated into the body of the magazine rather than being enclosed as a supplement. I like to look through the list and see where others are celebrating the Mass of Ages.

Since people do rely on this, I thought it would be helpful to post here a correction to the times at Blackfen. They are all correct except the entry "Mondays 8pm Low Mass." We do often have a Low Mass on Monday evening - but usually at 7.30pm. This is a private Mass, said when I have the opportunity after teaching at Wonersh. Sometimes I'm not around (for example this Monday I'm travelling to Exeter to speak to the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy.) So this Mass should not be listed.

Sometimes I will say an extra Mass on another day/time. If you are in the area and want to know when there will be a Mass at Blackfen on Monday evening, or any other extra Masses, you can email to be put on a mailing list.

The regular public usus antiquior Masses at Blackfen are as follows:
  • Sunday 10.30am Missa Cantata
  • Saturday 10.30am Low Mass followed by exposition, confessions and Benediction at 12noon (Missa Cantata on the first Saturday of the month, followed by Benediction)
  • Holydays (on the traditional day) 8pm Missa Cantata
We will have Solemn High Mass at Midnight for Christmas, with carols beforehand from 11.20pm.

Families with young children are always welcome. If they make a bit of a noise, you will be in good company. Your three year olds can learn the Salve Regina from their peers.
