Mass for Sunday 10th June

Next Sunday's Mass will be at the church of St Therese of Lisieux at Sandfields near Port Talbot at 5pm

Last night saw a Sung Mass at St Joseph's Cathedral for the Feast of Corpus is an account of it:

The Feast of Corpus Christi in Wales

Last night, at St Joseph's Cathedral, Swansea, on the Feast of Corpus Christi, Sung Mass 
was celebrated by Father Jason Jones together with the Newcastle Emlyn Schola.

Some forty souls attended, a small number in Cathedral terms but very large when compared
 with how things were five years ago before Summorum Pontificum.

Then we would have been fortunate to have five in the congregation.

In another five years, I hope that we will have 100 plus attending Mass and fulfilling their
 obligation on this great feast.

The following clip is Byrd's Agnus Dei from last night's Mass.

It is pleading and plaintive:

"Have mercy on us O Lord and speed  support for the Holy Father in restoring tradition
 to our liturgy and Faith"
