Latin Mass training proves a global draw
Priests, deacons and altar servers converged on Prior Park College, Bath last week, to learn how to say or assist at the Traditional Mass.
One priest flew 4,000 miles from his Carribean island parish. Others came from Poland, Ireland and across the UK for the Latin Mass Society’s 11th annual training conference.
Delegates practised around side-altars in the college’s stunning Grade 1-listed chapel then put their learning into practice during a programme of traditional liturgy throughout the week, with musical backing from a specially assembled choir and schola versed in sacred music.
Conference organiser Paul Waddington said: “Prior Park has proved an excellent venue because of the very beautiful chapel and the number of side chapels we’ve been able to use for practice.
