St. Philip's School, London Makes Pilgrimage to Rome

It is always interesting to stay in touch with what the younger generations are doing, and so I was interested in this report about the boys of St. Philip's School in London:

The boys of St Philip’s School, London have just returned from a visit to Rome. During the four day pilgrimage the boys attended Mass at Santissima Trinita dei Pellegrini, at St Philip’s Shrine in the Chiesa Nuova and at the Tomb of St Peter.

The School Chaplain, Fr Dominic Jacob Cong. Orat. of the Oxford Oratory celebrated the Masses. The boys also attended the Angelus in St Peter’s Square when the Holy Father addressed them directly, text here. The boys also had a private audience with His Eminence Cardinal Burke, photos posted here.

Here are some of the photos. (And do note, these liturgies are distinct from the events of the Roman pilgrimage.) First, the Mass for the Dead celebrated by the group at Ss. Trinita:


Next, Mass at the Shrine of St Philip Neri at the Chiesa Nuova:



Finally, their private audience with Cardinal Burke:
