Fr John Saward of SS Gregory and Augustine here in Oxford has sent me details of three Low Masses in the Extraordinary Form this coming week at his church.
They are the usual Wednesday and First Friday Masses at 6, but also an additional one on Thursday August 5th at 6 for Our Lady of the Snow.
He says he is thinking of making these First Thursday evening Masses a regular part of the programme. During the Year for Priests, the Holy Father encouraged parishes to revive the tradition of praying for priests and vocations on First Thursdays. This devotion is associated with Pope Pius XI, who instituted the Votive Mass of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, and that Mass will be offered whenever calendrically possible.
Do please mention these Masses to friends.
Fr Saward also reminds people of the weekly day of Eucharistic Adoration, on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This concludes with Traditional Latin Benediction at 5.
