Collegiate house: spiritual training

It was laid down that all those residing in the collegiate houses should receive ‘spiritual direction’, usually from the dean or chaplain of the house, and that they should go to confession regularly with one or the other of them. At St Mary’s, the students seem to have gone to Newman (the dean of St Mary’s) for confession, though they were free to choose another confessor.

Each collegiate house had its own chapel and Mass was celebrated there each day.
