Solemn Mass in the Birmingham Oratory and Easter Monday in St Birinus, Dorchester

With Easter and other things I've not had a chance to post my photos of Solemn Mass on Passion Sunday (ie, the Sunday before Palm Sunday), at the Birmingham Oratory, which I attended on my way back from the LMS York Pilgrimage.

The Birmingham Oraotory is a really splendid church; not as grand as the London Oratory, but very impressive, and in a very unusual Romanesque style.

The Birmingham Oratory now has a Traditional Solemn Mass every Sunday at 10.30am. This is the only place in England where this is found. It is well attended, and accompanied by the parish's small choir.

Easter Monday in St Birinus, Dorchester

Fr John Osman's annual Solemn Mass on Easter Monday, accompanied by the Schola Gregoriana of Cambridge, was as splendid as ever, in his wonderful little church of St Birinus, in Dorchester on Thames. The deacon, Fr Guy Nichols of the Birmingham Oratory, preached very well on the appearance of Our Lord to the disciples on the road to Emmaeus, and the Blessed Sacrament.
