On Saturday, 1 November 2014, All Saints' Day, Bishop Alan Hopes of East Anglia celebrated Mass in The Extraordinary Form in his Cathedral in Norwich, 'from The Throne'.

Various Bishops have celebrated The Traditional Mass in various places, but this is the first celebration by a Bishop in his own Cathedral 'from The Throne', that is, in The Most Solemn Form.

Bishop Hopes is used to Celebrating the Extraordinary Form Mass; as an Auxiliary Bishop in Westminster, he did this at least annually for The Latin Mass Society for a number of years.

We had been asking for Traditional Masses in Norwich Cathedral [Editor: Norwich's Catholic Cathedral is Saint John the Baptist.] for some time, notably for a Requiem Mass for a couple who were Parishioners and had left money for this purpose. We were therefore delighted when Bishop Hopes told us, after his Appointment to East Anglia, that he would break the ice by celebrating an Extraordinary Form Mass there, himself.
