200 YEARS: St Albans school hosts bicentenary mass to celebrate anniversary of Catholic community

A school in St Albans has celebrated 200 years of the Catholic community with two Bicentenary Masses.

St Columba’s College held the two masses on September 29 and 30 to honour the 200th anniversary of the foundation of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart.

The Catholic religious community, who have run the school since 1955, was founded by Father André Coindre in Lyon France in 1821.

St Columba’s is the only school in the UK which is part of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart’s global community.

Headmaster, David Buxton, said: “Our Bicentenary Masses were an appropriate way for the college and the local community to show their appreciation to the Brothers of the Sacred Heart who have now been educating children in many countries around the world for the last 200 years and for 66 years here in St Albans. It is a significant landmark.”
