Wakefield Diocesan Propers

Canon David Burrows of Elland in the Diocese of Wakefield has kindly sent me the PDF of the diocesan propers produces by his diocese (here to view). I mentioned diocesan propers here. As far as I know these are the only set produced apart from Chichester some years ago. I have added the propers from Fr David to Company of Voices Resources. I was very pleased to see Fr Vivian Redlich old Cicestrian and martyr commemorated having served in a parish in the diocese. There are some fascinating commemorations including a former abbess of what is now the Stanbrook Abbey community of the English Benedictine Congregation, Mary Lucy Blyde, who was born in what is now the diocese of Wakefield.

Bishop Stephen writes :

"The year 2013 will see the 125th Anniversary of our Diocese. In preparation for that important commemoration, it was felt that a Diocesan Calendar of Saints and Holy Ones would aid us as we celebrate the life of the Diocese and all those who have worshipped in this place since Christianity first came to the Northern regions of the British Isles. I hope that this resource will add a further richness to your daily prayer.
I would like to thank the diocesan liturgical group who put the booklet together, Dewsbury Minster for the cover pictures and also all those contributors from across the Diocese who suggested names of holy ones. The Revd Canon Paul Williams and the Revd Aidan Platten also kindly gave advice. "

Congratulations to Bishop Stephen and his team.

If you have any sets of propers or information about any it would be interesting to see them. Indeed, if you have produced any for your patronal or a local saint they would be equally interesting.

  1. Oxford Diocese used to have a fairly substantial calendar of commemorations on its website, but they seem to have disappeared.
