Our annual dinner took place on Thursday 7th October in the Vincent Rooms, Vincent Square. The evening started with Mass at 5.30pm in Westminster Cathedral, celebrated by our Honorary President, Cardinal Vincent Nichols. We were honoured to be allowed to process into the Cathedral in our robes and uniforms, to our reserved seats before Mass began. As it was a Thursday evening we had the privilege of hearing the full choir of cantors and choristers sing the Missa prima: sexti toni-Croce and Stravinsky’s Ave Maria during Mass.
After Mass we walked the short distance to the Vincent Rooms where we enjoyed a splendid dinner of beautifully flavoured smoked salmon followed by delicious breast of guinea fowl.
HE Cardinal Nichols was our Guest of Honour at the dinner. There was a vibrant, joyful atmosphere to the evening. Here is a selection of photographs which reflect that.
