St Catherine's Trust Family Retreat: 31st March to 2nd April

The Family Retreat is back in the Oratory School near Reading this year, for Passion Sunday weenkend (the weekend before Palm Sunday), led by Fr Serafino Lanzetta of the Gosport friars. Details and booking here.

The Family Retreat, run by the St Catherine's Trust, is designed to make it possible for the parents of small children to attend a retreat without leaving their children behind. We arrange activities for the children during the spiritual conferences. Everyone is welcome, however: you don't have to bring children with you!

The Oratory School is a lovely setting for the Retreat, with two chapels and extensive and beautiful grounds. Last year we used Ratcliffe College near Leicester, as the Oratory School wasn't available.

The Retreat runs alongside the GCN Chant Training Weekend so the chant singers accompany our liturgies: Mass, Benediction, Vespers, and so on.

For some years now we have been using different Retreat givers each year; last year we had two priests of the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer, from Papa Stronsay.

The Latin Mass Society provides bursaries which HALVE the cost to families who would not otherwise be able to come.

It is a great event, do join us!
