We were delighted to welcome 250 Old Edmundians and guests to the College Chapel to celebrate Mass in this, our 450th anniversary year. Old Edmundian, the Archbishop of Cardiff, George Stack celebrated Mass and made it a very joyful occasion for all - we thank him for his time and enthusiasm.
It was a busy day for all, with Mass, a drinks reception in the Ambulacrum, a wonderful roast beef lunch with all the trimmings in the refectory and an afternoon of activities for our guests to join in with. Many OEs took part in tours of the College, seeing all the changes that have taken place since their time in education here; Fr Peter Harris kindly gave a Douai Silver and College Treasure to three groups of Old Edmundians in the Museum; and there was the chance to view the There But Not There installation in the Chapel in the afternoon, marking 100 years since the end of the Great War.
It was a truly great day for all visitors, staff and volunteers. We do hope that we will see many of you again at 2019 events.
