Fr Matthew Goddard FSSP writes: 'It is our great joy to announce that on 8 September 2018, the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Bishop Philip Egan, the Bishop of Portsmouth, established our Reading Mass Community as a personal parish, under the patronage of St John Fisher.
We are delighted to announce that the Monday Missa Canata at Corpus Christi, Maiden Lane will resume on Monday 10th September at 6.30pm, with Confessions from 6pm.
Due to other commitments, Fr Patrick Hayward asked us to find another priest to offer these Masses and Fr Gabriel Diaz has kindly agreed to do so.
We take this opportunity to thank Fr Hayward for his dedication in offering the Monday Mass over the years and we also thank Fr Diaz for taking them over.

A number of people have approached Fr James Bradley at Holy Family, Southampton, and asked about the possibility of a regular Latin Mass on Sunday. Fr Bradley already offers a Mass in the Extraordinary Form on Thursdays at 7-30 pm. He has indicated that he would be very willing to hear from those interested and, if a stable group of the faithful can be formed, he wants to help make this provision.
Members of the Latin Mass Society gathered in Westminster Cathedral Hall on Saturday for the AGM.
