Next Saturday, March 31st, the Oxford Ordinariate Group will hold a Passiontide devotion at Holy Rood church in Abingdon Road in preparation for Holy Week. As they are having Mass for Palm Sunday at 9 am the following day, they are holding this at the time they usually have the Saturday Vigil Mass.
The Newman Consort, under its new director, Paul Kolb, will singing items of music for Passiontide. There will also be hymns and readings. The format is described as being very similar to the Nine Lessons and Carols or, indeed, the Passiontide Oratory at St Aloysius on Wednesday.
