More about the Summer School

IMG_0403 IMG_0315
The St Catherine's Trust Summer School, which took place last week, combines lessons in a range of subjects with a Catholic angle - catechesis, art, history and so on - with the best liturgy anyone could experience outside a religious community. In the lovely Pugin chapel, we had Solemn Mass nearly every day, with singing supported by the very talented Br Richard Bailey, and the chant expert Chris Hodkinson; we also had sung Vespers every day, and Beneediction twice during the week.

Among the activities, this year as in previous years, was the very popular sewing group. This year they were doing gold work: a technique used on vestments, using gold thread. For their project, a goldwork design on a scarf, they used gold-plated thread. The results were extremely impressive.

At the end of the week we had our usual hilarious quiz, and a radio play, one of Dorothy Sayers' 'The Man Born to be King' series: 'The Resurrection'. Here is the cast - nearly all of the students, in fact!
