Pentecost at Blackfriars
Pentecost is all the more joyful at Blackfriars due to it being our patronal feast. For the past two years the Priory of the Holy Spirit has begun its celebration with a solemn Vigil of Pentecost. The service consists of Vespers, readings, psalms, prayers and culminates with the first Mass of Pentecost.
On Pentecost Day itself we were honoured to welcome fr. Bruno Cadoré, the Master of the Order. Following mass, the community held the traditional “Door-Keepers’ Supper”. The event allows the priory to thank the volunteer door keepers who play such an important part in the mission of Blackfriars.
