Since 2011, there is a Gregorian Chaplaincy, established by Bishop Peter, under the care of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter (FSSP), for members of the faithful throughout the diocese who wish to worship according to the older form of the Roman liturgy in Latin. Priests of the FSSP have offered Mass every Sunday in various locations across the Northampton Diocese for some years.
