The Latin Mass Society of England and Wales (LMS) is organising a residential training conference for priests wishing to learn the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite (Traditional Latin Mass) at Ushaw College, Durham.
The conference will run from Monday 12 April to Friday 16 April 2010 (i.e. Low Week) and will feature traditional liturgies in Ushaw’s magnificent neo-Gothic St Cuthbert’s Chapel together with a Gregorian Chant schola and polyphonic choir.
Expert tuition in the celebration of Mass in the Usus Antiquior will be provided on a small group basis. There will be tuition in Low Mass, Missa Cantata and Missa Solemnis with streams for beginners and more advanced students. A keynote lecture and 1962 Missals and altar cards will be available.
There will be opening and closing High Masses, daily Mass and Devotions, and Rosary. There will also be a closing Conference dinner with guest speaker.
The subsidised fee to participants is £115 which includes all accommodation, meals and training materials. There are limited places and priests are asked to register as soon as possible.
Further details and registration forms can be obtained from the LMS office (Tel: 020 7404 7284, e mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) or from the conference organiser, Mr Paul Waddington (Tel: 01757 638027, e mail: email@example.com).
Paul Waddington said: “This is the second time the LMS has organised such a training conference at Ushaw College and we are delighted to be going back. I hope the laity will tell their priests about this wonderful opportunity to learn the Usus Antiquior in the setting of one of England’s finest Catholic seminaries.”
