Young Catholic Adults: "The Traditional Mass Returns to Cheltenham"

The following came into my inbox while I was away in Budapest from a Catholic Young Adults group in Britain which is attached to the usus antiquior:

For the first time since the since the liturgical changes the Traditional Mass has returned to Cheltenham Spa, a leafy regency town in the centre of England. On 9th August 2008 Fr. Smith celebrated his first public Traditional Mass with 100 people present, which was a very large congregation for a Low Mass at 11.30 on a Saturday! This was followed up with another Low Mass on August 23rd. It is hoped that these Extraordinary Masses can continue to be celebrated every 2nd Saturday. A few months previously, Young Catholic Adults had gathered over 50 names requesting the Extraordinary form of Mass be celebrated at St. Gregory’s.

Here is an image of the event:
