Classical Rite parish for Liverpool


Mark Greaves at the Catholic Herald has given a good write-up for the story on the first parish in Britain to be given over to celebrations of the Classical Roman Rite. (Cf Diocese to create first parish for traditional Mass)

Archbishop Kelly of Liverpool has appointed Fr Simon Henry to the Church of St Vincent in Liverpool's Toxteth. St Vincent's is an 1856 Pugin Church that has not been wreckovated. It has only 25-30 people attending Mass there each week. There is a Sunday afternoon Mass in Liverpool served by a rota of priests and attended by 40-50 people in a less accessible location. I wish Fr Henry every success in this new initiative which will put the traditional liturgy into the mainstream of the life of the diocese: a "treasure for the whole Church" as Cardinal Hoyos has said.
