I have received this message from Richard Hawker, Sacristan of Holy Cross, the Dominican Priory in Leicester.
The Prior and community of the Dominican Priory of the Holy Cross Leicester are pleased to announce:
PONTIFICAL SOLEMN HIGH MASS AT THE THRONE
Celebrant: Bishop Malcolm McMahon, OP, Bishop of Nottingham
The Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Wednesday 8th December, 2010 at 7pm
Followed by the consecration of a Shrine to the English Martyrs.
I think I am correct that this will be the first Pontifical High Mass of a Bishop in his Diocese for a very long time indeed! It would be wonderful to have as many people as possible attend this.
Clergy are invited to sit in choir. Please bring Cotta and biretta, and stole if receiving communion. Please could you inform me at the e-mail address below.
If any clergy or servers who feel they would like to be part of the sanctuary party, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. They would need to be free to attend a few rehearsals.
Sacristan & Master of Ceremonies,
Priory of the Holy Cross,
