News - June 2015




Thanks to everyone who supported the pilgrimage Mass at Padley Chapel on Sunday 17th May 2015. We had a group of over 30 pilgrims and it was lovely to see so many of our younger families joining with us. The weather held out for us this year which meant that the Rosary procession could take place from Grindleford Station to the Chapel. The intentions of the pilgrimage were as follows:
*Vocations to the Priesthood & Religious life in Hallam
*The intentions of Bishop Heskett
*The Sick of the Diocese
*The Holy Souls

A total of £80 from the collection was donated to the Shrine for the general upkeep and maintenance. A special word of thanks to Fr. Clayton for offering the Mass for us and I hope that we may be able to arrange a further Mass at Padley before the end of 2015. Watch this space for further details.

The regular Sunday Mass continues but please take careful note of the change of date and time. After discussion with Fr. Adrian, we have decided to move the June Mass to Saturday 6th June 2015 at 3.30 p.m. The rationale for this is that the annual Corpus Christi procession will be taking place the following day and I know that many of you would also wish to attend the procession, so by moving the Mass on this occasion, hopefully people will be able to attend both events should they wish.

I also wish to draw your attention to the change of date for the Eckington Singers at St Theresa's, Sheffield. Full details are as follows:

Saturday 6th June 2015 - Anticipated Mass for the External Solemnity of Corpus Christi
St Theresa's Church,
Prince of Wales Road,
Sheffield,
S2 1EY
Time: 3.30 p.m.

Friday 26th June 2015 - Votive Mass of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour (Patroness of the Diocese)
St Theresa's Church,
Prince of Wales Road,
Sheffield,
S2 1EY
Time: 7.30 p.m.
(Music by the Eckington Singers)

I look forward to seeing you during the coming month.

Annual LMS Pilgrimage to Padley Chapel - 2015




The annual Latin Mass Society Pilgrimage to Padley Chapel takes place on Sunday 17th May 2015. 
The Pilgrimage will begin at 12.30 pm at Grindleford Station with a Rosary Procession to Padley Chapel, followed by Sung Mass at 1.00 p.m. at Padley Chapel.

Padley chapel is the remains of Padley Manor, originally the private chapel of Padley Hall, which, in the sixteenth century, was owned by the devout Catholic Fitzherbert family.

The Hall was regularly raided for evidence of Catholic worship until, in July 1588, two priests were found hiding within the walls. Nicholas Garlick and Robert Ludlam were found guilty of high treason and, together with Richard Sympson who shared their faith, were hung, drawn and quartered at Derby before the month was out, their butchered remains stuck onto poles on St. Mary’s Bridge. They became known as the  ‘Padley Martyrs’.

Location: Padley Chapel, Grindleford, Hope Valley, Derbyshire S32 2HN
