Learn Latin this Summer! Residential and Online options

Mass at Park Place during the Guild of St Clare Sewing Retreat in the spring.

Not many of those reading this blog will be able to put their hands on their hearts and say that their Latin could not be improved. So why not do something about it?

Residential Latin Course, 8th - 13th August

The Latin Mass Society hasn't had a residential Latin course since before Covid, but this year we are back, better than ever: a better venue, and the option of beginners' New Testament Greek as well as beginners or intermediate Latin. The great Fr John Hunwicke will be with us to teach Latin.

The venue is Park Place Pastoral Centre in Hampshire (PO17 5HA), a quiet rural setting with en suite rooms and excellent food.

There are discounts for LMS members (yes, join us to get one, it's cheaper that way) and enormous discounts for clergy, seminarians, and religious.

All the details are here.

Online Courses, July–October 

Can't make it to Hampshire in August? From later this month the next round of online courses organised by Matthew Spencer, now with an assistant, Peter Day-Milne, starting late this month.

The courses accommodate Latinists of all levels, and include options to explore a wide range of Latin registers: liturgical Latin, the Latin of the Fathers, Classical Latin, the Latin of modern Church documents, and so on.

The courses are essentially ongoing through the year, and can be done from anywhere in the world.

The LMS' sponsorship for clergy and seminarians applies to these as well. In fact we will pay 80% of the cost for clergy etc. based in or from England and Wales.

All the details are here.
