A group of priests in the United Kingdom gathered in the city of Bath in England last week to learn how to say the Traditional Latin Mass. Hundreds have attended over the course of years since the conference was first organized eight years ago.

The event, sponsored by the Latin Mass Society of England and Wales, took place over three days, and saw a decent turn-out of priests, deacons, and seminarians. This is the eleventh such conference for LMS. The first conference was organized in 2007, in the same year Pope Benedict issued Summorum Pontificum, the motu proprio granting every priest the right to offer the Traditional Latin Mass without special permission from his bishop.

The conference has been well attended each year, with an increasing number of attendees gathering at each conference.

The Latin Mass Society of England and Wales was founded to promote the traditional Latin liturgy of the Church, and is known for its well-attended annual pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, among other things.
