Notice for UK Readers : Ordinariate Mass in Portsmouth for Our Lady of Walsingham

This coming Saturday, September 26th, Mgr Keith Newton will celebrate a High Mass in the Ordinariate Rite for the feast of Our Lady of Walsingham. The Mass will be held at the Church of St Agatha on Market Way in Portsmouth, beginning at at 11 a.m. (Click here for information about how to find the church.) As I am sure many of our readers know, Mgr Newton is the prelate of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, the Anglican Use Ordinariate in the United Kingdom.

An address will be given by Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, former Bishop of Rochester and before that Bishop of Raiwind, Pakistan, on the subject of persecuted Christians. The Newman Consort will sing Haydn’s Missa in tempore belli (Paukenmesse), accompanied by an orchestra. Refreshments will follow, and all are very welcome.

Below are some images from the parish website; a Low Mass, the Lady Chapel, and a banner of the church’s patron. St Agatha. Click here to browse their image gallery.
