A special Mass was held last week at St James’ in Postlip. The church was built in the reign of King Stephens, converted into a barn at the Reformation and restored by local Catholics and reconciled to use by the Bishop of Clifton in 1896. Masses are celebrated occasionally. After the recent mass, sung in Latin, parishioners enjoyed refreshments outside and the lovely Cotswold views. The church has no electricity so the need for torches and candles was essential. Anyone who would like to use the church for a donation to maintenance please contact Parish Priest Fr Peter Slocombe.
