Pontifical High Mass for the Immaculate Conception

On Wednesday 8 December, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, the Right Reverend Malcolm McMahon OP, Bishop of Nottingham, will celebrate High Mass at the Throne. This will take place in the Dominican Priory church of the Holy Cross, at 7p.m. If you would like to attend the Mass, there are details about the location of the church here.

Mass will be in the Roman rite, with chant propers from the Dominican Gradual, and polyphony by Byrd and Elgar. His Lordship will be assisted by the Prior of Leicester, and other Dominican brothers. Clergy from the diocese will also assist at the Throne and in Choir. This Mass will mark the 10th anniversary of Bishop Malcolm's episcopal ordination.

After Mass, His Lordship will bless a new Shrine to the English Martyrs, which was featured on this blog recently.

It is believed that this will be the first Pontifical High Mass of a bishop in his Diocese for a very long time indeed, and we hope to bring you photos from this Mass in due course.
