Use of York


The special liturgical customs which prevailed in the greater part of northern England during pre-Reformation days. They strongly resembled those of the Sarum Use, but certain differences may be noted in the celebration of Mass, the Breviary, the marriage service, and in the form for the administration of Extreme Unction. A special calendar of feasts was followed, particular feasts were observed, and the liturgical colors varied.
