NEWLY ordained priest Canon Cosmas Montjean is making a return visit to the Preston church where he completed part of his training.

He will celebrate a traditional Latin Mass at 10.30am on Saturday July 30 at St Walburge’s church on Weston Street, followed by a reception at the parish house next door to the church.

Anyone interested is invited to attend the Mass.

Canon Montjean is a member of the missionary Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest order.

The church, designated as a shrine by the Bishop of Lancaster, is renowned for having the tallest spire of any parish church in England and was designed by Gothic revival architect Joseph Hansom.
