Published by St Edmund's College and Prep School on Tuesday 18th of January 2022

We were delighted to welcome His Eminence Cardinal Vincent Nichols, our President, on Wednesday 29th September to celebrate the 453rd anniversary of our founding in Douai, France.

Cardinal Vincent Nichols led a whole-school Mass in our Pugin Chapel, meeting many of our students from both the Prep and the College before joining us to unveil the portrait created to commemorate the visit.

Following the Mass, at afternoon tea, the Cardinal unveiled a new portrait which is to be hung with other portraits of our Presidents. The Cardinal is currently the 25th President of the College.

Mr Matthew Mostyn, Headmaster, commented: ‘‘It was a joy to welcome our President, His Eminence Cardinal Vincent Nichols, to the College. That he was willing and able to find time in his very busy schedule to say Mass for us, spend time with us, and to meet with so many pupils of all ages, was enormously appreciated, and we look forward to welcoming him back again soon.”
