Academic Mass 2011

Monday, October 10, 2011
The academic year at Blackfriars began with a votive Mass of the Holy Spirit and Vespers. It is very apt to begin the year by asking the Holy Spirit, to fill us with wisdom and understanding, to enlighten our minds and to aid our studies in the year to come. It is also a good opportunity for the new students to meet each other and the friars. In his homily, the Regent of Studies, Fr. Richard Finn encouraged the congregation to allow the Holy Spirit to enflame their hearts and minds with a love of study and love of each other.

After the Mass the community and students of the hall and studium enjoyed an opportunity to socialise over curry and a glass of wine
