Old Mass


St Mary Magdalen's, Brighton, celebrated its 150th anniversary with an Extraordinary Form Mass. During the 28 years I lived in the parish, it has had its ups-and-downs. Since 2009, with the increasing use of the traditional liturgy, it has seen a remarkable revival, though it should not be forgotten that the parish is also involved in charitable works including a soup-run for the homeless. My impression of the latter is that it is of equal value to the helper as to the helped, and it prevents everyone from getting snooty as it brings home to us the fact that any of use can end up in either place.
