From the Ship of Fools board
Only four English Missal parishes in England?
Most of us know that four churches in England still use the English Missal. At All Saints’ [North Street], York [been there - great place] the Roman bits of the canon are said silently, but the Prayer Book parts are perfectly audible.

What is the practice at the other three churches?

In the unlikely event that shipmates have forgotten where they are, they consist of

St Chad, Toller Lane, Bradford
St Luke, Southport
[not the friendliest place in the world, I understand, but at least they're sound in theory]
Great Torrington, Devon
O tempora.

Makes this kind of religion almost as rare in England as Russian Catholic churches in the US (more on Russian Catholics). Four parishes apiece in countries much different in size.
