Elements 'Day of Reflection' at Aylesford Priory
Thursday 8th June
Elements were given a guided tour of Aylesford Priory by Father Michael, one of the Friars and finished the morning session with Mass, celebrated by Father Michael himself. Elements were joined by local parishioners, but Father Michael took a special interest in the boys and based the Mass on the boys’ achievements and moving on to new schools. His message was very positive. He even asked the boys to sing our Donhead Hymn at the end of Mass, which the boys did with great gusto. We were very proud of them! Just before Mass, the boys had reflected on their time at Donhead and what qualities they would take with them to their new school. It is usually a very peaceful day and this year was no different! We always try to make it a prayerful and reflective, but also a relaxing, fun day where the boys can be sociable and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
