St Aloysius' Day in his Jubilee Year

This year marks the 450th anniversary of St Aloysius's birth in 1568. The choir of Downside School this evening sang at Solemn First Vespers and Benediction in honour of our parish's patron saint.


Tomorrow (21st June) is the Solemnity of St Aloysius. There will be a sung English Mass with St Aloysius' School at 10am. Bishop William Kenney C.P. will celebrate a Pontifical High Mass at 6pm at which Fr Matthew Power. SJ. will preach.

During this Jubilee Year a plenary indulgence is available every day in our church under the usual conditions (until 9th March 2019).

Here is a letter from the General of the Society of Jesus about the Jubilee Year:

And here is the Decree announcing the Plenary Indulgence:
