For the first time since the since the liturgical changes the Traditional Mass has returned to Cheltenham Spa a leafy regency town in the centre of England. On 9th August 2008 Fr. Smith celebrated his first public Traditional Mass with 100 people present, which was a very large congregation for a Low Mass at 11.30 on a Saturday! This was followed up with another Low Mass on August 23rd. It is hoped that these Extraordinary Masses can continue to be celebrated every 2nd Saturday.
