Mass for the Ascension in St Birinus, Dorchester on Thames
Last Thursday Fr John Osman as usual celebrated a Solemn Mass for Ascension. With some wonderful polyphony provided by Andrew Knowles it was a truly splendid occasion.
The deacon was Br Lawrence Lew OP and the subdeacon Br Gregory Pearson OP, both of the Oxford Blackfriars.
If you don't know this church, it really is unique in the Oxford area and well worth a visit, especially when Fr Osman, who has done so much for its restoration and embellishment, is celebrating one of these special liturgies. He also says EF Low Mass every Saturday morning at 9.30am. Dorchester is between Oxford and Reading; see here for more details.
