Mass for the beginning of the academic year 2014-15

Wednesday 15th October 2014

The start of the academic year was marked by a votive Mass of the Holy Spirit and Vespers celebrated by the Regent of Studies, Fr. Simon Gaine OP. We prayed for the Holy Spirit to fill us with wisdom and understanding; to sustain us in our desire for knowledge and love of God's truth, and of one another. The occasion was a wonderful opportunity to come together as a community of students and teachers in order to consecrate the work of the term ahead to God.

 
After Mass, Dinner was served in the refectory and the brethren were able to meet our new students, and catch up with older friends.
