OPEN MEETING IN CARDIFF
Saturday 28th October 2017
Arrangements are now being made to hold our next Open Meeting (and AGM) at the university chaplaincy in Cardiff. The day is expected to include a talk on ‘Why Latin in the Liturgy?’, workshops on Gregorian chant plus some simple polyphonic settings for use at Vespers and Benediction, and the day will conclude with Vespers and Benediction. Full details will appear in the next issue of Latin Liturgy.
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 Ordinary 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.
