My congratulations and an assurance of continued prayers go to Father Alex Stewart, FSSP and Father Krzysztof Sanetra, FSSP - both were ordained by the Archbishop of Liverpool, the Most Rev. Malcolm McMahon O.P. at St Mary's. The Bishop of Shrewsbury, the Rt. Rev. Mark Davies sat in choir as did many other priests from a wide range of locations in England and further afield.
This is the first time for decades that priests have been ordained in the Extraordinary Form in England & Wales. It is safe to say that not since the liturgical changes in the years following the Second Vatican Council.
This is a major step in the the direction of making the 'Extraordinary' routine and embedding it in the mainstream life of the Catholic Church.
Today is also an opportunity for young men from this country who have heard the call to serve the Church as priests in the context of the Extraordinary Form to be encouraged and follow in the footsteps of Wallasey born Father Stewart.
