Vespers of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Ushaw.
Ushaw celebrates its link with the English college in Douai, France founded in 1568 and the men who studied there. Many of those trained for the priesthood faithfully returned to England, keeping the Catholic Faith alive – with many of them losing their lives in the difficult times they faced. In these enlightened times we remember their courage and faith and look forward with hope to working with all faith communities to spread peace and reconciliation. All welcome.
