All Traditional Masses will Cease from 28th July Onwards in Cheltenham

There will be no Traditional Masses offered at St. Gregory's in Cheltenham after Thursday 28th July. It would appear that it will not be possible to organise any Traditional Masses at this location for the foreseeable future.

A Requiem Mass organised for the 11th August for the repose of Ashley Hicks (the first anniversary of this death) has also been cancelled.

I have just been informed that there are no Traditional Masses at St. Gregory's Cheltenham on July 7th and for the whole of August, this is due to Fr. Tom Smith being away.
