The Personal Parish

Parish of St John Fisher

Personal Parish under the care of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter

In September 2018, the Personal Parish of St John Fisher was established by Bishop Egan to serve as a spiritual home for those attached to the traditional rites of the Church. 

All its Masses and Sacraments are celebrated in the Extraordinary Form  of the Roman Rite, often known as the Traditional Latin Mass, as authorised by Pope Benedict XVI in his ‘motu proprio’ Summorum Pontificum.

Until a permanent home can be found for the Parish, all Masses, take place at St William of York Church in Reading.
