Aims of the ALL
The Association was founded in September 1969. Its aims are:
to promote understanding of the theological, pastoral and spiritual qualities of the liturgy in Latin;
to preserve the sacredness and dignity of the Roman rite;
to secure, for the present and future generations, the Church’s unique inheritance of liturgical music.
The Association believes that its objectives are most likely to be achieved by frequent celebrations of the Mass in Latin in the Ordianry Form of the Roman rite, to which the majority of the laity are accustomed, while many are dissatisfied with the shortcomings of much current liturgical practice. The Bishops of England and Wales recognized the Association in 1970 as an approved Catholic Society, and in 1975 Pope Paul VI conferred on it the Apostolic Benediction.
