The Mass was sung by the Lay Clerks of Westminster Cathedral.  The Gospel reading was Matt 5: 43-48.  The Mass was very well attended.

Pictures of Chartres Pilgrimage 2014 (Part 3)







Pictures of Chartres Pilgrimage 2014 (Part 2)






Pictures of Chartres Pilgrimage 2014 (Part 1)


The annual Paris to Chartres pilgrimage took place over the Pentecost weekend 7 - 9 June. There appeared to be a better turnout than last year and the British chapters were up in numbers, including several from the Clifton Diocese.  We were fortunate to have two priests per chapter with the National Chaplain Fr Martin Edwards and Fr Gerard Byrne with Our Lady of Walsingham (adult) chapter and Fr Mark Withoos and Fr Alex Redman (from St Dominic's, Dursley) with the Juventutem (youth) chapter under the patronage of Saint Alban. Fr Bede Rowe the Chaplain at Chavagnes International College, France and also from Clifton Diocese led the Chavagnes Scouts chapter.  The LMS President Dr Joseph Shaw and Jamie Bogle President of Una Voce International were also on the pilgrimage.

The weather was mixed over the three days with periods of bright hot sunshine and temperatures in excess of 30 degrees Celsius, hail showers, thunder and lightning and storms with torrential rain. Doubtless to say it made walking difficult at times especially through the mud!

Overall, however, the whole experience was spiritually uplifting and many graces were received during the pilgrimage.

Please see below some of the photographs of the pilgrimage and who knows you might be inspired to go next year?

High Mass to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of the Ordination of Dom Boniface

 
 

On Saturday 31st May a Solemn High Mass of Our Lady was held to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of the Ordination of Dom Boniface.  The Mass, which took place in the Abbey Church, was well attended.  The celebrant was Dom Boniface Hill O.S.B., the Deacon Fr Martin Queenan and the Sub Deacon Fr Jean-Patrice Coulon M.S.F.S.  
 
 
The St John's Festival Choir provided the music which included uplifting renditions of Missa 'Ave Maris Stella', Offertory Motet 'Exultate Deo' and Communion Motet 'Ave Maria'.  The Holy Gospel reading was according to St John c.19, v 25-27 where Jesus on the cross gave his mother into the care of the disciple he loved.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Dom Boniface gave a homily which reflected on his 25 years as a priest He began by explaining that it was the martyrs that first drew him to Downside.  He spoke about the influence of St Oliver Plunkett, who was martyred in 1861, he was Bishop of Armagh and Primate of Ireland. His shrine is at Downside.  He also mentioned Edmund Campion and the saints St Vincent de Paul and St Francis de Sales and of course St Boniface whose name he took.  St Boniface was a Devonian, like himself who hailed from Crediton.  Dom Boniface reminded us that the priesthood has been handed down from Jesus to his disciples at the Last Supper and then through the centuries via the Bishops and he ended by saying that 'All priests are an icon of Jesus Christ' and as a human being he felt strengthened by the Saints praying in Heaven for him and all of us.   He also thanked God for his twenty five years as a priest.
 
   The Shrine of St Oliver Plunkett
We would like to thank the priests, servers and choir who helped to make this Mass a memorable experience.
