First Catholic Mass to celebrated in the chapel of King Henry VIII after 450 years

The Chapel of King Henry VIII was built by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey in the early 16th century.  It was taken from Wolsey by King Henry VIII and rebuilt after King Henry VIII broke with Rome and established the Church of England due to Cardinal Wolsey failure to secure his annulment from Catherine of Aragon.

Since then no Catholic Mass have ever been celebrated there for 450 years. Cardinal Nichols will celebrate Vespers in the chapel at Hampton Court Palace next month for the very first time after these long.

The Genesis Foundation and the Choral Foundation are working together to make the Mass celebration possible, as the first Latin Rite of the Catholic Church to be celebrated since the 1550s at the Chapel Royal.

A spokesman described it as “an unprecedented coming together of the Catholic and Anglican churches on such an historically important site”.
