I am pleased to report that there was a Solemn Mass sung in Southwark, at the Cathedral of St. George.
There are some very nice photos!
The feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary was celebrated in Southwark Cathedral with a Traditional Latin High Mass, by permission of His Grace Archbishop Kevin McDonald and the Dean, Canon James Cronin. The Mass was followed by singing the Te Deum.
It is understood that this is the first time that a High Mass in the Traditional form has been celebrated at the Cathedral since the introduction of the Novus Ordo Mass following the Second Vatican Council.
The clergy were:
Celebrant – Fr Andrew Southwell
Deacon – Fr Patrick Hayward
Subdeacon – Fr Christopher Basden
Canon James Cronin, Dean of the Cathedral, preached.
Fr Anthony Logan was in Choir whilst several other clergy were amongst the congregation which numbered around 800, comfortably filling the nave.
