St Edmund's Sunday in Madrid
2016 saw a special St Edmund's Sunday celebration held at Stella Maris School, Madrid (Stella Maris is a Catholic school with which we have close links). The College sent a party of staff and students in the choir out to Madrid to spend some time with our Spanish friends here at Stella Maris. The choirs of both schools gave a concert on the Saturday evening which was a delight to the ears.
We have a strong Spanish contingent of Old Edmundians so we invited them all to join us at Stella Maris for Mass and lunch on the Sunday. We were delighted to welcome 27 OEs and their families to this event. St Edmund's Schola Cantorum were present to sing at the Mass and how beautiful they sounded in Stella Maris' new Chapel, El Templo. Our Head Chef from the College had joined the group so he could cook a traditional Sunday lunch for all the guests and it was a great success.
We hope to be able to hold a St Edmund's Sunday celebration in Spain every year such was the passion and interest in the 2016 event.
Avita Pro Fide!
