{mosimage} Friends of Consolata will remember the large Crucifix that stood in the grounds of the College at Totteridge, between the football pitch and the nuns’ cemetery. When Totteridge closed in 2003 Fr Pietro donated it to St Aloysius College, Highgate who wanted to refurbish it and erect it in the forecourt of the School to mark the 125th Anniversary of the School’s foundation in1879.

So on the feast of SS Peter & Paul 2004 following a Mass in St Joseph’s, (con-celebrants included Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor and our own Fr Renzo Marcolongo), the restored crucifix was blessed in its new location in front of the school by the Cardinal. A small team at the school has lovingly restored the figure and built a new cross and set it in a newly landscaped area that can be seen from Hornsey Lane.


Bishop Malcolm McMahon of Nottingham (an old Aloysian) in his sermon referred to the school motto Beati Mundo Corde – Blessed are the poor in heart, adding on the rest of the phrase – for they shall see God. The boys of the College can now see a wonderful image of God each day as they enter the School.
