I won't say that the LMS Latin Course will obviate the effort needed to recall the correct endings, but it will be leavened with talks about Latin in the liturgy, Gregorian Chant, and Latin in the development of important ideas like free will and faith and reason.
|Rev John Hunwicke at the LMS' conference|
Students will be divided in beginners and those with some previous experience of Latin, so everyone will derive the maximum benefit from the course.
It will take place alongside the St Catherine's Trust Summer School, so there will be a Traditional Sung Mass every day, plus sung Compline, plus Vespers and Benediction once or twice during the week, all in the centre's Pugin chapel.
It runs Monday to Sunday, 23rd-29th July, at the Franciscan Retreat Cenrtre at Pantasaph in North Wales. Accomodation is in St Winifrede's Guest House in Holywell nearby. It is surprisingly well connected by road, and you can get to Flint just down the road by rail. It is HALF PRICE for priests, seminarians, and those about to enter seminary. The discount for LMS members is actually bigger than the annual membership fee. But everyone is welcome!
Our first such Latin course, in 2010, was a huge success; last year's didn't happen because of the sudden closure of Ushaw College, which was supposed to be the venue. So don't be shy, sign up today!
