On Friday 17th May, Downside School held its annual Confirmation Mass in the stunning Downside Abbey Church.

Seventeen pupils received the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Abbey Church and the Mass was celebrated by Bishop Declan, who is the ninth Bishop of Clifton. A full Schola supported the Mass with some magnificent singing. The pupil servers served the altar with reverence, and the candidates responded to wanting to being confirmed with great gusto!

This Mass is always a highlight within the Chaplaincy calendar and many family and friends celebrated this sacred moment for the pupils.
