The Place To Be

The place to be this week is St Mungo’s Church, Townhead in Glasgow.

St Mungo’s is home to a great Passionist community (its confessors are exemplary) and Fr Paul Francis CP of Laus Crucis fame and this week is their Novena in Honour of Our Lady of Sorrows:

Our Lady of Sorrows Novena
The Solemn Novena in honour of Our Lady of Sorrows begins on Thursday, 7 September and continues until Friday, 15 September. The Novena Service, which includes Mass, is at 12.15 and 7.30 p.m. on weekdays, 12.15 and 6.00 p.m. on Saturday, and 12.00 noon and 7.00 p.m. on Sunday. Petition forms and prayer leaflets are available at the church door. During the novena, there is no 6.00 p.m. Mass, except on Saturday.

Details are HERE

The prayers for the Novena are HERE on Laus Crucis

In the midst of this there will be Mass in the Old Rite at 11am on Saturday the 9th September in the presence of His Grace Archbishop Mario Conti. This is organised by Una Voce Scotland who will have their AGM thereafter.

I, alas, will miss this liturgical treat as I will be away with the family and some chums in almost Carthusian seclusion in the family cottage in the Scottish borders. Mass will have to wait until Sunday evening when we get back. Glaswegians are lucky in that there is always the 9pm Mass on a Sunday at St Aloysius', Garnethill. Is this the latest Sunday Mass in the UK?
