Academic Mass at Blackfriars

Wednesday 23rd October 2013

Each academic year at Blackfriars opens with the offering of a Votive Mass of the Holy Spirit, at which staff and students gather to consecrate their studies and teaching to God and implore the guidance of His Holy Spirit.

The Regent of Studies, Fr Simon Francis Gaine OP, who is simultaneously the Regent of the English Dominican Province and the head of Blackfriars Hall and Studium, presided at Mass and preached. In his sermon, Fr Simon reminded us of the intimacy of knowledge as communion in the truth and noted that by dedication to our studies we image the Blessed Trinity, whose inner life is a communion of knowledge and love.
