Come and celebrate our Josephite 200th Anniversary Mass
This Sunday (19 March) is the Feast Day of St Joseph, whereby the Congregation of Josephites will start its year of celebration to mark the bi-centenary of the foundation of the Josephites with a Mass at Alost, Belgium.
This Mass will be celebrated in the school chapel at Alost where Constant Van Crombrugghe, the founder of the Josephites, was the head teacher in 1817.
The Josephites are the order of priests that founded St George’s College in Weybridge in 1869. The Josephites were founded for 'the Christian instruction and education of young people'.
On Monday 20 March, there will be a meeting of the Head and Deputy Head teachers of the schools in Europe founded by the Josephites.
Here at St George’s, there will also be School Masses on Monday to celebrate St Joseph’s Day, which parents are welcome to join.
The actual date of the foundation of the Josephites was 1 May 1817. In honour of this, on Monday 1 May 2017 there will be a Mass in the College Chapel, followed by a complimentary buffet lunch afterwards to mark the 200th anniversary of the Josephites as a teaching order of priests and brothers.
All are welcome to come and join the Josephites on their special day on Monday 1 May to celebrate Mass and lunch.
