A suggestion has been made for a change in the timings of Sunday morning Mass at St James's. These currentl are at 8.30 OF, 9.30 EF Low Mass, 10.30 Sung Latin OF, and 12 noon OF. There is often little or no gap between the 9.30 and 10.30 Masses, to the detriment of both. How would those who regularly attend the earlier Masses feel about revised times of 8.15 and 9.15? Please give your views to LMS Rep, Roger Wemyss Brooks by email.

A new foundation for the ICKSP in the U.K.: after a new Shrine Church, a House for the Sisters Adorers of the Royal Heart of Jesus!
