The celebrations for the 400th anniversary of the Scots College Mission Oath continued last night as Schola Benedicti led the community in Solemn Vespers.
As the year of celebrations to mark the 400th anniversary of the Scots College Mission Oath, transforming the college into a place of priestly formation, continue, the community were delighted to welcome Schola Benedicti to the Via Cassia on the 16th October. The group led the community and friends in Solemn Vespers.
The schola, who are based in the Diocese of Paisley, but draw some members from Glasgow and travel across Scotland, made the college their first stop as they begin a Holy Year pilgrimage to Rome. The group were founded in 2013, and named in honour of St. Benedict and Pope Benedict XVI.
Over the next week, highlights for the 19 strong choir and those who have travelled with them will include singing Mass at the tomb of St. Peter and the Papal Audience in St Peter’s Square on Wednesday.
Everybody at the college thanks the Schola for visiting, leading the beautiful singing at Sunday evenings Solemn Vespers and with them well and every blessing for their pilgrimage to the Eternal City.
