Who

Celebrant of Mass in the Extraordinary Form

Dom Jonathan Rollinson OSB is a monk of Belmont Abbey, near Hereford, where he is also Assistant Novice Master.

He was ordained to the Diaconate by the Archbishop of Cardiff, the Most Reverend George Stack, on 15th July 2014 having concluded his theological studies in Rome.   He was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood on 12th March 2015 at Belmont by Bishop Michael Campbell, OSA, of Lancaster.

We are grateful to Dom Jonathan for offering to celebrate Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form for us and especially so since, before coming to Little Malvern, he had not sung a Missa Cantata.

Latin Mass Society Representative 

The Latin Mass Society's representative for Little Malvern is Alastair Tocher

Alastair is retired and lives with his family near Malvern. He has sung in various Scholas for over 30 years and most recently founded and directs the Schola Gregoriana Malverniensis (2015) and the Schola Parva (2017) which regularly sing Mass in the Extraordinary Form at St Wulstan's.

Alastair has a professional background in Computing Science which also helps just a little bit when it comes to Webmastering.



Parish Priest

Although the Parish Priest of St Wulstan's, Dom Edward Crouzet OSB, does not himself celebrate Mass in the Extraordinary Form, we are very grateful to him and to St Wulstan's Parish Pastoral Council for generously allowing us to use St Wulstan's Parish Church.

Dom Edward is a monk of Downside Abbey in Somerset and the parish is a Mission of Downside Abbey. To read more about Dom Edward's varied and interesting experience see the Oration for his awarding of Degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa by the University of Bristol in 2003.
