The Mass was celebrated in the presence of the Very Rev. Monsignor Gilles Wach, Prior General of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.
The Mass heralded the beginning of a fourth mission for the ICKSP. St Winefride's at Monkmoor has long been a venue of an LMS organised weekly Sunday Mass and now this will be cared for by the Institute. In addition to this, Canon Smith, the resident priest will also exercise his ministry in the Cathedral.
Bishop Davies can only be lauded for his forward thinking and nuturing of Traditional liturgy.
