PONTIFICAL HIGH MASS, SHRINE CHURCH OF ST THOMAS OF CANTERBURY & ENGLISH MARTYRS On Sunday 24th September 2017 The Rt. Rev Bishop Michael Campbell O.S.A of Lancaster RC Diocese celebrated Pontifical High Mass to open the Shrine Church of St Thomas of Canterbury & English Martyrs, Preston. The church will now be run by the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest and the Mass was celebrated in the presence of the Very Rev. Gilles Wach the Prior General and founder of the Instutute. The move was welcomed by the parishioners of the parish as the Church was packed full on Sunday to witness the beautiful liturgy of the Mass. They are delighted the Church has been saved from closure and hope it thrives.
