A New Regular TLM in Belgium

Beginning on Sunday, January 1st, the feast of the Circumcision, a traditional Latin Mass will be held every first Sunday of the month in the Basilica of Our Lady of Dadizele, Belgium. The Mass will be celebrated at 9 a.m. by Fr de Martin of the Institute of Christ the King.

Dadizele is a small village about 15 kilometers from Ypres, the site of two major battles of the First World War. The origins of the Marian shrine at Dadizele date back to the 15th century; the present neo-Gothic basilica was designed by the English architect Augustus Welby Pugin, and built in honour to the Immaculate Conception after the proclamation of the dogma in 1854.
