As from the first Sunday of Advent (that is next Sunday 1st December) there will be a Latin Low Mass at 5pm every Sunday in the Church of St Wilfrid in York. It will be followed by Rosary and Benediction at 6pm. This replaces the 4pm Mass at the Church of the English Martyrs in York which is now discontinued.
This development follows the arrival of Oratorian fathers at St Wilfrid's Church and the expectation that a permanent Oratory will be erected there. It puts the Latin Mass in York on a much firmer basis, as we can now be sure of there being a priest each week.
Unfortunately, car parking is much more difficult at St Wilfrid's Church. There is a small car park opposite the theatre in St Leonards, which I believe costs £3.50 for two hours. Alternatively, it is possible to use the park and ride service.
At this point, I would like to express gratitude to Fr Bane at English Martyrs' Church for accommodating the Latin Mass in the last few years; and also to our celebrants, Fr David Smith, Fr James Callagan and Fr Strphen Maughan, who have served us very well.
