Throughout the 2016-17 academic year, Leeds Trinity University will celebrate its 50th anniversary. In just fifty years, we’ve transformed from two Catholic teacher training colleges into a University renowned for teaching excellence and producing highly employable graduates. As part of our year-long programme of celebrations, we’re holding a Celebratory Mass at Westminster Cathedral in London on Wednesday 12 October 2016.
We’d love to welcome alumni, former staff, friends and partners of the University to the spectacular setting of Westminster Cathedral. The Mass, taking place on the day of the Feast of St Wilfrid, will be presided over by the Auxiliary Bishop of Westminster, Bishop John Wilson. We’ll host refreshments before and after the service in Cathedral Hall (adjacent to Westminster Cathedral), which will give you an opportunity to catch up and network with friends - new and old.
Details of the service will be provided shortly.

42 Francis Street
The Cathedral Church of Westminster, which is dedicated to the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, was designed in the Early Christian Byzantine style by the Victorian architect John Francis Bentley. The foundation stone was laid in 1895 and the fabric of the building was completed eight years later.
The awesome interior of the Cathedral, although incomplete, contains fine marble-work and mosaics. The fourteen Stations of the Cross, by the sculptor Eric Gill, are world renowned.
Cathedral Hall can be found on Ambrosden Avenue, SW1P 1QH.
For more information about the Cathedral, including details of how to get there, please visit the Westminster Cathedral website.
