Some Good News Stories from the Fraternity of St. Peter in England

Given on Friday 5th December 2008, Reading.

Portsmouth Diocese:
Bishop Crispian Hollis of Portsmouth has kindly allowed for a second FSSP priest to come and live with Fr de Malleray in Reading. Fr Simon Leworthy, an Australian priest holding a British passport, has studied in Rome and served in Germany and in Australia. He is due to arrive in January.

Northampton Diocese:
Statement from Bishop’s House, Northampton, on Saturday 29 November 2008:
“Having in view the spiritual good of the faithful attached to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman rite, Bishop Peter Doyle has approved of the relocating of the Sunday Mass offered by priests from the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP) from Bedford to Flitwick where better facilities are available (e.g. car park, parish hall). Bishop Doyle thanks the priests from the FSSP for their ministry in that part of the Northampton diocese over the recent years, as well as the parish priests in Bedford and Flitwick who have welcomed this worshipping community. Lastly, Bishop Doyle assures all the faithful attending the EF Mass in Flitwick (starting on the first Sunday of Advent 2008) of his pastoral solicitude and of his prayer.”
