In support of our priests, our families, and our Church

You may have seen the recent letter from more than 450 priests in support of the Church’s teaching on marriage.

We would like to invite you to sign the letter below, to be sent to the press in support of them, and to encourage others to sign it.

To sign, please leave your name and your diocese in the comments box below, or if you prefer email them to us or to one of the coordinators:

Mark Lambert ( or
Andrew Plasom-Scott (

The Letter:

Dear Sir,

We, the undersigned, wish to endorse and support the letter signed by over 450 priests in the recent edition of the Catholic Herald.

As laity, we all know from our own family experiences, or those of our friends and neighbours, the harrowing trauma of divorce and separation, and we sympathise with all those in such situations.

It is precisely for that reason that we believe that the Church must continue to proclaim the truth about marriage, given us by Christ in the Gospels, with clarity and charity in a world that struggles to understand it.

For the sake of those in irregular unions, for the sake of those abandoned and living in accordance with the teachings of the Church, and above all for the sake of the next generation, it is essential that the Church continues to make it quite clear that sacramental marriage is indissoluble until death.

We pray, and expect, that our hierarchy will represent us, and the Church’s unwavering teaching, at the Synod this autumn.

 Yours faithfully,

Dominican Low Mass

Though late, this Post brings a report of our celebration of the Feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas according to the Ancient Dominican Rite of Mass.

With more than half the congregation under 30, Mass was celebrated by Father Benjamin Earl, OP; Chaplain at St. Cuthbert’s Durham, with Father David Goodill, OP in Choir.  We were especially grateful to both Fr. Earl and the servers since all three had to learn the Rite from scratch –and for Mr Peirce Yip, it was also his first time serving Mass.
