8 Dec: Solemn Mass at the Cathedral of Southwark

I was very happy to receive the news that Solemn Mass will be sung at St. George’s Cathedral in Southwark (UK).  Here are some of the details:

Solemn High Mass (Traditional Rite)

11am, Saturday 8th December, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception

St George’s Metropolitan Cathedral,
Lambeth Road
LONDON SE1
(www.southwark-rc-cathedral.org.uk)

Mass sung to chant by the Gentlemen of the Cathedral Choir

Nearest tube – Lambeth North (Bakerloo line); Waterloo tube and BR; numerous bus routes. See Cathedral website for further directions.

I will be in Rome during that period.  I am hoping that His Holiness will pontificate with the older rite on either 2 or 9 December.  However, maybe I ought to pop up to the sceptred isle for this event. 

I am so pleased for my priest friends, fellow bloggers and non-bloggers, of Southwark.  This is a great benchmark for them all!

If you are anywhere within striking distance of Lambeth on 8 December, consider attending!  I will!

    Thank you so much for this information. It does seem ironic to learn of this event from USA.

  2. There is a Mass in the old form in Lancaster Cathedral, England, next Sunday.

    There will be a sung Requem Mass on Sunday 11 November 2007 (Rembrance Sunday in England) at 12 midday.
