There will be no Lain Mass at St Francis Xavier, Hereford on the Last Sunday of March 2015. This is because of Palm Sunday. The regular Friday Mass will still continue every Friday evening, with the exception of Good Friday of course.

The monthly Sunday Mass will resume in April 2105.

On Saturday 7th June 2014, the Committee of the Latin Mass Society of England and Wales appointed both Marion Luscombe and Shaun Bennett as Assistant Representatives for Herefordshire.

I am looking forward to working with Marion and Shaun as we continue together supporting priests, parishes and our members for the promotion of the Traditional Roman Rite (Extraordinary Form) in the Archdiocese.

I will (with the help of God) continue to look after the rest of the Archdiocese.

To contact any of the representatives, go to our ‘Contact Us’ page.

Please keep us all in your prayers.

Coaches for Pilgrimage to Holywell 2014

holywell

There will be a coach leaving from Belmont Abbey to Holywell. The cost is £20 per person and for those who are not too mobile it will pick up from the Shrine so there will only be the downhill Rosary to manage. There will also be a stop on the way for those needing facilities. Please contact me if you wish to go on the Belmont coaches.

At the moment there has been very little interest in the South, with only 6 names come forward to go. At the moment we have a coach booked, but more names will need to come forward to make this pilgrimage viable. If you are interested in going from Bridgend, Cardiff, Merthyr, Newport, Cwmbran, Pontypool or Abergavenny, please contact me as soon as possible either by clicking here of by using the ‘Register for Holywell 2014’ form on the right side of this page.
