Summorum Pontificum Study Day at Ushaw College

I was delighted to be invited to be a speaker at the planned Study Day for Priests at Ushaw College on Wednesday October 24th. Here are the details as they were announced.

Summorum Pontificum
A Study Day at Ushaw College, Durham,
the motu proprio of Pope Benedict XVI.
Wednesday 24th October.

10.00 am: Opening prayer.
10.00 am to 11.15 am: Rev Dr. Alcuin Reid : An introduction to & study of the motu proprio.
11.15 – 11.30: Coffee break.
11.30 am to 12.30 pm: Questions & discussion on the motu proprio.
12.30 pm: Informal Lunch in the college dining room (general mingling and conversation).
1.15 pm to 2.30 pm: Fr John Emerson, FSSP, on the traditional priestly orders (and the co-existence of both forms in a parish?).
2.30 pm to 3.00 pm: Ian Graham, Founder of the Schola Gregoriana of Northumbria on singing the Mass (and to be a diocesan contact on music for priests).
3.00 pm to 3.10 pm: Coffee break.
3.10 pm to 3.25 pm: Leo Darroch, Secretary of the International Federation Una Voce (giving a brief update on the situation around the world).
3.25 pm to 4.00 pm: Open Forum Questions on the events of the day to all participants and making arrangements with any priests who would like further contact.
4.00 pm Closing prayer.

I am very sorry to hear that this event has been cancelled due to lack of support from the clergy. The organisers had put in a lot of work but priests were either not interested or had things to do that they considered to be a higher priority. It is very disappointing.
