The Secretary of the Una Voce Federation (FIUV), Dr Joseph Shaw, has issued the following press release:
The FIUV notes with regret the letter, dated 10th June, from Fra’ Giacomo Dalla Torre, Grand Master of the Sovereign Military and Hospitaler Order of St John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes, and of Malta (the ‘Order of Malta’), forbidding the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass (the Extraordinary Form) in the context of the Order’s liturgical life.
It is with sadness that we announce the death of Dom Aidan Doyle OSB (aged 64), a monk of Belmont Abbey, after a long battle with cancer. Dom Aiden used to offer the Old Rite in Abertillery / Brynmawr before his appointment in Leominster and was Deacon / Subdeacon at so many of our High Masses through the last 15+ years. Details of his funeral have yet to be announced but it is hoped that a Traditional Rite Requiem will be organised in the coming weeks.
