BISHOP ALAN HOPES, auxiliary bishop in Westminster, celebrated a High Mass of Requiem in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite in Westminster Cathedral on November 14 for the repose of the souls of all deceased members and supporters of the LMS.
Fr Andrew Southwell was assistant priest, Fr Michael Cullinan was deacon and the sub-deacon was Fr Michael Dunne of the cathedral staff. Gordon Dimon of the LMS was MC.
Bishop Hopes also preached on the theme of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as a bridge between the saving events of Our Lord’s Passion and the men and women of our own time with all their hopes and fears.
The congregation heard the men of the Cathedral choir sing the Requiem Mass and Adore Te Devote at Communion.
