Feast Day celebrations at St Augustine’s Priory

Friday 10th February saw St Augustine’s Priory celebrate their feast day with Mass at Ealing Abbey celebrated by Fr David Reilly, Diocesan Youth Chaplain.

From a morning filled with games and competitions, the whole school comprising girls aged from 4 – 18, gathered together at Ealing Abbey and celebrated a joyous Mass with the theme of ‘Memory’ at its core, remembering all those who have contributed to this community since its foundation in 1634 and all those pupils, parents and staff who are at the heart of the school today.

The congregation was led in song by Director of Music, Dr G Higgins and the St Augustine’s Priory choir. The St Augustine’s Priory Mass setting was used throughout the service, composed in honour of the visit of Cardinal Vincent’s visit to the school in 2015.

Headteacher, Mrs Raffray, commented, ‘The Feast Day Mass is always a lovely occasion and it was wonderful to see Prep I to Upper VI, together with parents and alumnae, join together in worship.’
