Farewell High Mass for Fr Bede Rowe

St Bede the Venerable - Patron of Historians

The scheduled Mass at St Dominic's, Dursley next Sunday, 7th September, at 5:30 pm will be a High Mass celebrated by Fr Bede Rowe with refreshments afterwards.  This will be Fr Bede's last Mass in the Clifton Diocese for the foreseeable future, apart from the LMS Glastonbury Pilgrimage on the next day, so please do come along to bid him a fond farewell.  As many of you will know Fr Bede has been on secondment for the past three years at Chavagnes International College in France.  He returned in July but at the moment there is no role for him within the Diocese.  Fr Bede is a great exponent of the Latin Mass and during his time at St George's in Warminster became something of a rallying point for the priests within the Diocese who celebrated the Latin Mass.  He will become the private chaplain in Great Swinburne in Northumberland and will be going to Durham to take a PhD, he will be sorely missed.  Please pray for him and for all our priests who courageously bring us the Latin Mass.
