Confraternity Mass with Bishop Byrne
As promised, here are some photos from yesterday's Mass with Bishop Byrne at St Edmund's, Ware, for the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy.
Ordinarily, the principal Mass at the Colloquium is mainly in English, but this year, the Bishop particularly asked to celebrate the Mass in Latin. Most of the priests concelebrate, but attending in choro is perfectly acceptable and a number of priests choose to do this. Facilities are available for private Masses (in either form of the Roman rite) before breakfast.
Here are the Fortescue vestments that I wore for Mass yesterday morning:

The vestment press first thing in the morning, when the College's collection of old Missals was in demand:
And an item from the College museum: the original copy of Adeste fideles:
