On the 2nd February I went over to New Brighton to visit the members of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. At the invitation of Bishop Davies, the Institute have taken over the care church of St Peter and Paul, New Brighon. In due time the church will become a place of Eucharistic Adoration in the diocese.
There is much work to be done. Please keep Canon Meney and Abbe Montjean in your prayers as they begin their ministry in New Brighton.
To mark the Solemnity of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary there was a High Mass.
Celebrant: Fr. Ian O'Shea
Deacon: Fr. Francis Wadsworth
Subdeacon: Abbe Cosme Montjean
Here are a few pictures from the Mass
