Latin Mas Brisbane


Now just to confirm those rumours that the archdioceses has tried to suppress. Yes we do have a Latin Mass comunity up here in Brisbane and it's growing too. Fr Gregory Jordan SJ is the saintly chaplain. The Latin Mass is celebrated at 9:30am each Sunday and we have a two week rotation between a Low Mass and a sung Mass. We are lucky enough to have a nice church to celebrate Mass in, even though it is a tad small. The church is under the patronage of St Luke.



Here's the altar was it stands for the Novus Ordo Mass. A few of us at the community refer to this set up as the pumpkin.



And this is the wonderful Tridentine set up. It's a lot more open and less crowed. But due to the altar being so small we have a basic limit of 2 servers for Low Masses and 4 for sung Masses. But don't get your hopes up for the fully Solemn High Mass , due to us not being able to find a deacon and subdeacon. But if we did, I'm sure we'd be overcrowded.

Hey, at least the formward altar (or Cranmer table) is movable!

And you've got plenty of room!! You could easily fit 4 or 6 torches + Acolytes etc

well I would not be able to serve with our team in that small space.

I wonder how they get on when they have the silly freestanding altar?
