Latin on the Isle of Wight

I am invited today by the Latin Mass Society of the Isle of Wight to celebrate Mass at St Mary's, Ryde, founded by the Countess of Clare in 1842. (She also founded St Mary's in West Croydon.)

Tomorrow morning, I will be celebrating Mass in Latin in the new rite at St Cecilia's Abbey, also in Ryde. This thriving community sings the office in Latin each day and Mass is celebrated in Latin with all the texts sung from the Graduale.
