This year’s High Mass in the Extraordinary Form was on the Feast of St Alban, the proto-martyr of England.

The celebrant was, as usual, Dom Boniface, and we are grateful to the servers and other ministers who came to assist, as well as the St John’s Festival Choir from Bath and Fr Philip Thomas, from SS Joseph and Teresa in Wells.

The congregation came from far and wide, and were very welcome. Low Mass is celebrated at Downside on the first Sunday of each month in the crypt chapel at 11:15am. All are very welcome. Look out for the next High Mass next year!
