I have received the following from the Chairman of the Latin Mass Society, who is also the Oxford representative, Dr Joe Shaw:
Just a reminder about this Saturday, our annual local pilgrimage.
Mass will be at 11am (not 11.30 as has found its way into some places), in Blackfriars (in St Giles).
It will be a Solemn Mass in the presence of Archbishop Longley, accompanied with polyphony by the Schola Abelis.
There will be a procession from Carfax at the centre of Oxford starting at 2pm, led by the Archbishop. It will go to Oxford Castle where he will bless a plaque in honour of Bl George Napier, a priest who was executed in 1610. (The plaque is being installed this afternoon.)
The procession will return to Blackfriars, and the proceedings will conclude with Benediction, at 3pm or later (depending on how long the procession takes).
Please make your best effort to join us!
