Please pray for the repose of the soul of William Tomlinson, who died on Monday 10th February 2020. Bill was an employee of the LMS for a number of years, and helped establish the Office when it moved to Macklin Street. He was a life-long supporter of the Traditional Mass, and an altar server both man and boy. He regularly served the Monday evening Mass in Maiden Lane, our annual Masses in Westminster Cathedral and the Sacred Triduum in London. Pray also for his wife, Lucy, and family.

It was good to see a packed church yesterday evening (Monday 6th January) for our celebration of the Epiphany of the Lord. The setting was Corpus Christi, Maiden Lane - the Westminster Diocesan Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament. The Celebrant was Fr Gabriel Diaz, with Fr Peter Littleton as Deacon and Fr Stuart Foster, Subdeacon; the music was provided by Cantus Magnus. The LMS organises a Sung Mass in Corpus Christi each Monday at 6.30pm and it was very kind of Fr Robinson to allow us to have High Mass on this occasion.
The Latin Mass Society's Office will close on Friday 20th December 2019 for the Christmas holiday, it will re-open on Thursday 2nd January 2020.
For those who live in London, there will be a High Mass in St Mary Moorfields Church on Christmas Eve at 6pm, see here. For details of Masses in other parts of the country, see here.
The boat belonging to the monks (Sons of the Holy Redeemer) who live on Stronsay, an island in Orkney, Scotland, was smashed to pieces in a freak storm. To get on and off the island they are now reliant on the charity of local fishermen; they also need a boat in order to go fishing, a mainstay of their diet.
Bishop Michael Campbell OSA, Bishop Emeritus of Lancaster, celebrated a Pontifical Requiem for departed members of the LMS in Westminster Cathedral on All Souls Day. Fr Michael Cullinan was the Deacon and Fr John Scott was the Subdeacon. Canon Scott Smith ICKSP was the Assistant Priest. Canon Vianney Poucin de Wouilt ICKSP and Mr Richard Pickett were the MCs. Before the Mass, a wreath was laid on the tomb of Cardinal Heenan in thanksgiving for the part he played in preserving the Traditional Mass in England and Wales.
