This is worthy of note, given how hard it is to get Summorum Pontificum going in England:
Dear Fr Z,
Our small community at English Martyrs’ Parish in York, England is always grateful for your work and regular readers of your blog. We normally celebrate two EF Masses a month but we have a special Mass this coming Saturday. We will celebrate a Solemn Mass in the Extraordinary Form in honour of Our Lady as part of our October devotions and a local schola, the Rudgate Singers, will provide music. Would it be possible for you to post details of this Mass, which are below? We are trying to reach out to as many people as possible who may be unaware of the EF in York, and we pray that this Mass will encourage more people than usual to celebrate with us.
Thank you again for your excellent work and encouragement, and we keep you in our prayers.
