Mass in Lydiate with Archbishop Malcolm

The Church of Our Lady
Southport Road
L31 4HH

I'm looking forward to Mass tomorrow celebrated by Archbishop Malcolm for the Order of St Lazarus. We will also welcome our Grand Master from the Czech Republic, HE Jan Count Dobrzenský z Dobrzenicz. 

Our Lady's church is a very attractive edifice from 1854 built in rural surroundings with a long Catholic history. The music should be very splendid - Mozart's Mass in C (the Spatzen - Sparrow - Mass) for the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (one of the Patrons of the Order).

It all starts at 11am tomorrow (Saturday 16th), so come along if you can - Mass is open to everyone. You might even get a drink afterwards - cocktails will be served after Mass - emulating the colour of the Order's decorations, it's a bright green cocktail!

What a wonderful day! How good to see a diocesan ordinary celebrate the Mass. We are as proud as punch (mea culpa) to be -finally - received into the Order. God Bless us all.
