Archbishop Denis Hart of Melbourne has established the Personal Parish of Blessed John Henry Newman for Catholics wishing to avail themselves of the Tridentine Rite Mass in Latin.
The Archbishop has signed a decree establishing “the Personal Parish for Catholics who celebrate the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite within the Archdiocese of Melbourne” from 28 March and will install Fr Glen Tattersall, who will be assisted by two other priests, as parish priest on 25 April.
Archbishop Hart said in the decree that the group would contribute to diocesan life and have shared use of a named parish church, “such use being regulated by an agreement concerning availability, occupancy, maintenance and financial contributions”.
Archbishop Hart said he was making this provision “in view of the stable nature of this community and in order to provide adequately for the care of souls within the normal diocesan structure”.
Fr Tattersall expressed gratitude for the move, adding: “It is recognition by the Church of the normalcy of the Extraordinary Form.”
