Annual Requiem Mass for Deceased Oratorians
The annual Requiem Mass for deceased Old Oratorians of The Oratory School was held on Thursday 10 November at the Little Oratory, Brompton Road in west London.
Many pupils, parents, staff, governors and Old Oratorians braved the London Underground strike to gather at the chapel. The Requiem was live-streamed for those who were unable to attend.
There were readings by the Head Master, School Captain Oliver Rae, Chaplain & Charities School Prefect Giorgia Wetton and Oratory School Society President, David Connolly. Sacristans and senior members of the Schola were also involved. This was a very special event on our calendar and we were delighted to be able to return to the Little Oratory for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic.
After Mass there were refreshments and a gathering of guests, current staff and Old Oratorians of all ages at the Rembrandt Hotel.
We express our grateful thanks to the London Oratory for permission to celebrate our Requiem Mass once again this year.
