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.

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.
