You Report: New Bishop, Ancient Mass, in Dundee, Scotland

Reader G. sends us the following report:

The monthly mass has been introduced on a trial basis. The recently appointed Bishop, Stephen Robson, is behind the initiative, supported by the work of Una Voce Scotland. Bishop Robson had been approached by a group of around 60 people who requested the traditional mass, which set things in motion.

The inaugural mass was on Sunday 15th March, at St Josephs Convent Chapel, Dundee. Edinburgh-based Fr John Emerson FSSP was the celebrant. Bishop Robson sat in choir and the event was a great success with some 130 people present, including many young adults and teenagers. Catholic Students from St Andrews University provided the music and some of the altar servers.
