Bishop Mark Davies praises the Ordinariate
Wednesday 2nd July 2014

Bishop Mark Davies of Shrewsbury has said his diocese is delighted to be welcoming the Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, Monsignor Keith Newton, to Shrewsbury Cathedral this weekend.

"Monsignor Newton's visit will be an occasion for us to give thanks for the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. It is wonderful to see the "prophetic gesture" Pope Benedict XVI spoke of, being part of the daily life and witness of the Catholic Church in this land" Bishop Davies said.

The Ordinary will preach at all Masses and - at the kind invitation of Bishop Davies - will also preside at the Cathedral's Solemn Pontifical Mass at 10.45 on Sunday.

Fr David Mawson, a priest of the Ordinariate who assists at Shrewsbury Cathedral, will preside at the 8.30 Mass at the Cathedral on Sunday. All the Masses will be streamed live .

The visit has been arranged by the Friends of the Ordinariate charity, which assists the Ordinariate by raising funds and giving practical support. There will be a retiring collection for the work of the Friends after each Mass.

Monsignor Newton said: "It is a great privilege and pleasure for me to be visiting this great Cathedral and to be able to offer Mass among the people of the Diocese of Shrewsbury. I am very grateful  indeed both to Bishop Davies for his support and to the Friends of the Ordinariate for arranging this visit".

The first Mass at which the Ordinary will preach will be the Vigil on Saturday 5 July which takes place at Our Lady of Pity Church, Shrewsbury SYI 4JY. All the Masses on Sunday are at the Cathedral itself, which is located on Town Walls, Shrewsbury SY1 1TE.
