Farleigh pupils on retreat

We were delighted to welcome a group of Farleigh School’s younger pupils to Downside for a retreat earlier this week, following in the footsteps of their older friends earlier this term. 

The pupils joined Dom Anselm for the day as they prepared for their first Holy Communion. The children spent much of the day in the Old Chapel, learning about the Mass service; there was also time to have a run on sports pitches (and rolling down the steep verges!) before a slice of cake and return to school.  We wish the children all the best of luck at their first Holy Communion.
