Important event in London this Saturday

This Saturday, May 28th, a newly ordained FSSP priest, Fr. McCarthy (who was ordained only a few days ago in the seminary of Denton, Nebraska), will be celebrating his first Solemn High Mass at St James, Spanish Place in London.

 More photos and some videos of the ordinations can be found here.

Obviously for Bristol readers this is a bit of a treck, but it is an important event to show support for. There are so few English priests ordained at all these days, least of all those who celebrate according to the older liturgical books.

It will be a spectacular event, with excellent music; all in quite the most beautiful church in England. For those interested, Fr de Malleray FSSP is also providing a guided tour of the nearby Wallace collection, while there will also be prayers at the Tyburn martyrs' memorial near Marble Arch station. Please get in touch if you would like more details.

If you are unable to make it to London, do please keep Fr McCarthy FSSP, and his confreres in your prayers; and continue to pray for vocations of such men to the priesthood and consecrated life.
