It is with great joy that I can share this e-mail from Nicholas Mitchell of Port Elizabeth.
"I am very happy to say that a Traditional Latin Mass, according to the 1962 Roman Missal, will be offered at Corpus Christi Catholic Church, La Roche Drive, Humewood, Port Elizabeth, on 9am on 1 January 2009. The Church is visible from the intersection of Beach Road and La Roche Drive and is situated opposite Garden Court Hotel (the old Hotel Elizabeth).
Monsignor John Clark, who has been privately offering the Traditional Mass on an occasional basis for a couple of months, has kindly agreed to offer this Mass, in response to the requests of local Catholics. Hopefully, this will be the first of many such Masses in Port Elizabeth.
This Mass will be the first such Mass offered publicly in a diocesan parish, in terms of the Papal motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, in Port Elizabeth. All are most welcome."
I know that Nicholas Michell and all of those who have helped to get the TL Mass going would say "Not to us but to God the Glory" but I want to say "Well done" to all of you.
