Una Voce: The History of the Foederatio Internationalis Una Voce 1964-2003

Leo Darroch has produced a substantial and fascinating volume on the FIUV, commonly known as Una Voce International, from its beginnings up to the end of the presidency of the late Michael Davies. Davies’ predecessor, Eric de Savanthem, was President for 30 years, from the early days of the organisation, so the book revolves around these two remarkable men.

Black cope wanted

We have been asked by a priest serving in a Mission Station in South Africa if we could source a black cope for him to use.

Fr Gregory has a set of black vestments, which enabled him to offer 3 consecutive Low Masses on All Souls Day, but, so that he can perform absolutions at the catafalque in the future, he is in need of a cope. It doesn’t matter if the cope is in need of repair, he can arrange for this to be done, as he has done in the past with vestments.

If you are able to help, please contact Stephen Moseling, the General Manager, at the LMS Office.

Michael Campbell OSA, Bishop of Lancaster, in the Shrine Church of St Thomas of Canterbury and English Martyrs, Garstang Road, Preston PR1 1NA.

November - the Month of the Dead

A reminder that our Annual Requiem Mass will be celebrated in Westminster Cathedral this Saturday, 4th November, at 2.30pm.

To assist in praying for the dead throughout Novemeber, The Latin Mass Society is selling the perfect collection of prayers: Traditional Prayers for the Faithful Departed, taken from the Raccolta, the old official manual of indulgenced prayers, which was filled with prayers for all occasions authorised and encouraged by the Holy See.

LMS Ordo 2018

The LMS Ordo for 2018, for use with the Roman Missal of 1962 and Breviary of 1961, is now available.

Includes guidance (confirmed by the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei) regarding Holy Day celebrations in the Traditional Rite.

St James's, Spanish Place

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.
