Solemn High Mass at SS Peter & Paul

To celebrate the Patronal Feast of the parish EF Solemn High Mass was celebrated this evening.

The celebrant was Fr Michael Brown (parish priest) with Fr David Phillips as deacon and Rev Andrew Bunce as sub-deacon. In choir was Fr Gary Dickson from Thornley.

The Proper of the Mass was sung by the Schola Sancti Baedae whilst the Ordinary was a setting by Palestrina sung by a choir directed by Shaun Turnbull.

The congregation numbered 40+ mainly from the 2 parishes of SS Peter & Paul in Longenton & St Mary's in Forest Hall.

EF Masses were also celebrated today at both Coxhoe and Barnard Castle.

Off to Leeds tomorrow for the Mass with Bishop Rifan.
