Oswald Charles Baker (1915–2004) was a controversial Roman Catholic priest who lived in Downham Market in Norfolk.[1] He was parish priest at Saint Dominic's Church between 1951 and 1975. He made headlines in the 1970s when he refused to say the new vernacular Mass and insisted on saying the traditional Latin Mass. Initially he supported the Society of St. Pius X but Baker became an advocate of the sedevacantist theory and in latter years he worked independently. The film actor Mel Gibson was a visitor to Baker's chapel.[2]
