FSSP Chaplaincy in Northampton Diocese moves church

From Fr de Malleray FSSP. I hope this important apostolate flourishes in this new venue.
The FSSP Sunday Mass is moving south:

from Sacred Heart Church in Flitwick

to Sacred Heart Church in Luton
148 Ashcroft Road, Stopsley, Luton, LU2 9AY

10mn off the M1, Junction 10: follow signs for Airport.
Same time, same church name, same priests, same diocese -
only 2 junctions further south on the M1

 From Sunday 10 February 2013. 

As usual Holy Mass will be offered at 5pm every Sunday, with confessions before Mass and refreshments after. By kind permission of Fr Chris Whitehouse, P.P. and with the approval of Bishop Peter Doyle, the priests of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (i.e. FSSP) will serve this apostolate.

On 19 July 2011, Bishop Peter Doyle established a Gregorian Chaplaincy for members of the faithful throughout the diocese who wish to worship according to the older form of the Roman liturgy in Latin. He appointed Fr Armand de Malleray, FSSP as Chaplain. Priests of the FSSP have offered Mass every Sunday in various locations across the Northampton Diocese for 7 years. Since December 2008, Mass was offered at Sacred Heart Church in Flitwick. We thank wholeheartedly Canon Denis McSwiney, P.P. for his great support and hospitality in his parish church over the past years as well as the parishioners at Flitwick. Please note: our last Sunday Mass in Flitwick is this Sunday 3 February 2013.
Our moving further south to a larger urban centre with improved facilities will hopefully make it easier for more members of the faithful to experience that form of the Mass. All are welcome, even without any particular experience of the traditional Latin Mass. God bless you.
