Last call for the SCT Family Retreat
We now have more than a hundred people coming to the St Catherine's Trust Family Retreat, 8-10th April, but there are still spaces! Please get your application form (download it here) in NOW!
The Family Retreat is open to all, not just families, but we call it the Family Retreat because we make special provision for children of all ages. This is the sixth Family Retreat we have run, the second in the current, excellent location, the Oratory School, Woodcote, RG8 0PJ, located between Oxford and Reading.

It is a unique occasion, with traditional liturgy (Mass, Vesppers, Compline, Benediction) and devotions, spiritual talks and talks and activities for the children. The Oratory School, with its two chapels and set in glorious grounds, is the ideal venue.
It is £190 for a couple, which is compares very well to prices for retreat centres around the country. Nevertheless the Latin Mass Society has set money aside to make this available to as wide a group as possible and will pay half the cost for anyone who ticks the box on the application form. So you have no excuse not to come!
The retreat starts on Friday afternoon, with Mass at 5pm, followed by dinner at 6.30. You can register either before Mass or after Mass, if you can't make the earlier time. It ends with lunch on Sunday.
