Who

Regular celebrant

Dom Jonathan Rollinson OSB 

Dom Jonathan 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 on a regular basis and especially so since, before coming to Little Malvern, he had not sung a Missa Cantata.

Occasional visiting celebrants

Fr Paul Lester

Fr Paul is a priest of the Archdiocese of Birmingham and is currently parish priest of St Mary on the Hill, Wednesbury.   He was previously parish priest at Hethe, Oxfordshire where he regularly celebrated Low Mass or Missa Cantata each Sunday.  Since being transferred to Wednesbury he has introduced an early morning Low Mass on third Sundays as part of the regular parish Sunday schedule there.

We are grateful to Fr Paul for agreeing to help us out on occasion when Dom Jonathan is unavailable, particularly since Wednesbury is no small distance from Little Malvern.

Parish Priest

Dom Edward Crouzet OSB

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