Mass with Fr John Berg, Superior General of the FSSP, in Reading, England

On Sunday the Very Rev Fr John Berg celebrated a Solemn Mass at St William of York, Reading. A short time ago the house recently purchased by the FSSP in Reading was given official canonical status by Bishop Crispian Hollis of Portsmouth, and Fr Berg was here to bless it and invite the faithful to its official opening.

But first, the Mass. As the first Sunday of October, we celebrated the Feast of Holy Rosary, on which Fr Berg preached very movingly. Fr Armand de Malleray FSSP was deacon, and Fr Simon Leworthy FSSP subdeacon.

The church of St William, though long denuded of its ornaments, looks really rather splendid thanks to the tireless efforts of Fr de Malleray and the faithful to create the necessary steps, provide a carpet for them, to make a gradine for the candles and so on. It is a great tribute to the hard work for the restoration of Tradition going on in this community.
