LMS Holds Annual Requiem Mass in Westminster Cathedral
LMS Announces Its 8th Priest and Server Training Conference, Belmont Abbey, Hereford, 16-19th April 2012
To meet the continuing and growing demand for the Extraordinary Form, the Latin Mass Society will be organising another in its series of much-praised residential training conferences for priests and servers wishing to learn Mass in the usus antiquior. On this occasion, it will be held at Belmont Abbey, Hereford, HR2 9RZ. This will be the eighth such conference organised by the LMS since 2007, which has now trained well over 100 priests in the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. Bookings have already started to come in for the Belmont event.
Tuition, which will be given by experienced priests, will be tailored to suit the needs of each priest. The conference will also be open to servers who wish to learn or improve their skills with the older form of the Mass.
The fee for attending is £120, inclusive of board and lodging at Hedley Lodge, which is adjacent to the abbey. There is a concessionary rate available of £60.
