English seminary denies request for traditional Latin Mass

Catholic World News - January 07, 2013

Officials at St. Mary’s College, Oscott, have denied a request from seminarians for access to the extraordinary form of the Latin liturgy.

The seminary’s stand appears to be at odds with the papal motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, which called for wide access to the traditional liturgy, and encouraged efforts to train seminarians in the extraordinary form. St. Mary’s College officials said that seminary students are free to attend the traditional Latin Mass when it is offered elsewhere, if their schedule permits.
