As well as daily Sung Mass, devotions will include Lauds, Benediction and Rosary.

Mark Johnson, lead organiser, said, “We are extremely pleased to have the backing of the Archdiocese of Westminster and Archbishop Vincent Nichols. This conference – our first at London Colney – builds on the success of our two previous conferences at Merton College, Oxford. I hope the laity will tell their priests about this wonderful opportunity to learn the Usus Antiquior in a welcoming and recollected environment.”

I'll see if I can get a supply but it is shame it is not happening in Oxford this year. London Colney hasn't quite the excitement of Oxford bookshops, Oxford friends dropping by and Oxford gossip. I found last years Conference at Merton College in student accomodation a little austere, the Spartan expectations of some members of the LMS committee make me shudder just a little.
