The dates are Friday 5th to Sunday 7th April, that is Low Sunday weekend, the weekend after Easter. It starts on Friday afternoon and ends with lunch on Sunday.
Prices are very reasonable: all the staff are volunteers and almost all the entire cost is the accomodation and the excellent food. Furthermore, those in financial need can apply for one of a limited number of 50% bursaries, provided by the Latin Mass Society.
So there is no excuse not to come! Full details of this and other events run by the St Catherine's Trust are detailed on this pdf download, which includes all the contact details and application forms.
