I'm honoured to be the celebrant for High Mass this Saturday at St Wilfrid's Church in York, home of the Oratorian Community there, in the shadow of the great Minster. It is the annual Latin Mass Society pilgrimage to honour St Margaret Clitherow. Long wanted to get along there ever since the pilgrimage started but this is the first time I have managed it. Many tell me it is always a great occasion, so come along if you can. Mass is followed by a procession through the streets, which is a wonderful witness for the Faith in these days.
Saturday, 30th April
Solemn Mass at 1.30pm
followed by a procession through the streets of York,
via the shrine of St Margaret Clitherow in The Shambles,
the Ouse Bridge, site of her martyrdom,
returning to St Wilfrid's for
Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
The St Wilfrid's Rectory Garden
will be open the same day for viewing the late spring flowering,
from 12 noon until 4pm.
