Welcome to the Latin Mass Society in the Diocese of Wrexham
These pages provide some information on the Traditional Roman Rite and in particular where it is celebrated in the Diocese of Wrexham, North Wales.
The Latin Mass Society, founded in 1965, is an association of Catholic faithful dedicated to the promotion of the traditional Latin liturgy of the Catholic Church, the teachings and practices integral to it, the musical tradition which serves it, and the Latin language in which it is celebrated.
The value and continuing importance of the Church’s ‘earlier liturgical traditions’ were affirmed by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in his 2007 Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum (SP), which rules that the Roman Missal of 1962—‘the Missal of Blessed Pope John XXIII’—has never been abrogated and therefore no prohibition in its use exists. Further instruction followed from the Pontifical Commission 'Ecclesia Dei' in 2011 on the application of the Apostolic Letter Summorum Pontificum.
Additionally, these instructions extend to other sacraments and rituals for example the traditional Divine Office.
The Latin Mass Society is not a religious order or priestly association. Although we have many priest members, what we do as a Society is to co-ordinate activity by which the Traditional Roman Rite can be promoted.
