Farleigh retreat at Downside

We were delighted to welcome a number of our young friends from Farleigh School to Downside last week.

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 enjoy a celebratory cake before returning back to school!  We wish the children all the best of luck at their first Holy Communion.
