Successful sewing day in London


The Guild held another very productive day in St Mary Moorfields, London, in conjunction with a training day for the Latin Mass Society's server-training sodality, the Society of St Tarcisius.


Some long-standing projects of the Guild are nearing completion, opening the way for some exciting new undertakings.

Assisting us for the first time as chaplain at our February retreat (28th Feb-1st March 2020) will be Fr Stephen Morrison O. Praem, of the Norbertine community at Chelmsford. To book for February 2020, click here.

As well as the usual mending, we also have a quantity of vestments to be made from scratch, which may be of interest to anyone wanting to learn more about how they are constructed.
