LMS Pilgrimage to Caversham 20th Feb

The annual Latin Mass Society Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Caversham will take place on Saturday 20th February, the Ember Saturday of Lent, 11:30am. It will be a sung or high Mass.

The celebrant will be Fr Anthony Conlon; Mass will be accompanied by the Schola Abelis (chant) and Cantus Magnus (polyphony).

The church is located at 2 South View Avenue, Reading RG4 5AB:P click for a map.

The restored Shrine of Our Lady of Caversham, a medieval shrine of ancient foundation which was venerated by Queen Catherine of Aragon among many others, was beautifully constructed in the 1950s on the side of the church of Our Lady and St Anne; the shrine image was crowned by papal mandate in 1996. Anyone living in area should make Our Lady of Caversham a regular place to visit, and there is no better way of doing it than with the Latin Mass Society's pilgrimage.

The Ember Saturday of Lent, with its glorious chants and extra readings, is the ideal liturgical and spiritual preparation for Holy Week.

Cantus Magus, directed by Matthew Schellhorn, will sing:

William Byrd (c.1539/40 – 1623) Mass for Three Voices
Claudio Casciolini (1697 – 1760) Paris angelicus a 3
Crist├│bal de Morales (c. 1500 – 1553) In die tribulations
