St Tarcisius medals seen in the wild


The medals of the Society of St Tarcisius have started to appear at celebrations of Mass, and outside the context of events organised specifically for server training.


 At the St Catherine's Trust Family Retreat, the final Mass was celebrated by a team of four members. Members were also present in force at the Latin Mass Society's Pilgrimage to Caversham on the Ember Saturday of Lent.

Second training day in London


The Society of St Tarcisius held its second training event of the year in St Mary Moorfileds, London, on Saturday 9th March. It was attended by 19 people, plus Fr Neil Brett of St Anne Line, South Woodford. We enrolled four new members and received three new postulants.


The next event will be in Our Lady of the Assumption, Warwick Street, on Saturday 11th May. As with the others in this series, it will take place in conjunction with a sewing day of the Guild of St Clare.

Successful server training day in London


On Saturday 16th February the Society had its first Server Training Day, relaunching the Society for a new phase of activity.

Fourteen people were enrolled at appropriate grades in the Society, and two more were registered as 'Postulants'. Because this was our first ever enrollment ceremony, even the instructors were enrolled, including one, Jonathan Hague, at the highest possible grade, Grand Master of Ceremonies.


It was particularly useful to have an entire serving team, from South Woodford, together with their parish priest, Fr Neil Brett, who could go through the ceremonies of Sung Mass together.

Fr Gabriel Diaz officiated at the enrollment ceremony in the afternoon.


The next training day is Saturday 9th March, in the same venue: St Mary Moorfields, Eldon Street, in the City of London: EC2M 7LS. Please email to book.

Tarcisius medals have arrived

The relaunch of the Society of St Tarcisius is rather dependent on our having physical medals: members can't be enrolled in the ranks of the Society without them. I am delighted to say, therefore, that the manufacturers, JC Trophies, have exceeded expectations in the speed of the process, and the medals are in the LMS Office in plenty of time for distribution at the first of our training days, which is 16th Feburary.

The design on the medals is taken from the central motif of the Latin Mass Society's black High Mass set of vestments: IHS, incorporating a cross, surrounded by a crown of thorns and a quartrfoil. (More on it here.)

Email us at to book your place to be trained and/or enrolled.

Training days start at 10:30 am and should end by 4pm.

February: Saturday 16th at St Mary Moorfields
March: Saturday 9th at St Mary Moorfields
May: Saturday 11th at Our Lady of the Assumption
