St Catherine's Trust Summer School 2014


27 July to 3 August 2014 (Sunday to Sunday) at the the Franciscan Retreat Centre at Pantasaph, in North Wales

Summer School


The St Catherine’s Trust Summer School is back this Summer, at a new venue: the Franciscan Retreat Centre at Pantasaph CH8 8PE, in North Wales, for the week 27 July to 3 August 2014.

Pantasaph is very well-connected by road and rail, being a few minutes away from the railway station at Flint, and close to the motorway network. It is near Holywell, which many will know as the only Medieval Shrine to survive the Reformation, and for many years one of the Latin Mass Society’s biggest annual Pilgrimages.

Alongside the Summer School the Latin Mass Society Latin Course for adults will be taking place (see below for more details). Accommodation at the Retreat Centre is limited, so the Latin Course participants will be staying at the Pilgrims’ Guest House in Holywell.

The Retreat Centre has a Pugin Chapel, flexible facilities, and lovely grounds. It is a delight that St Catherines Trust was able to secure the venue for their Summer School, and we all hope it will be a long-term home for this important event.

The Summer School makes it possible for Catholic children to experience a week of Catholic teaching, in a wide range of subjects, from our enthusiastic volunteer staff, in the context of the Traditional Liturgy. This is an experience which is wholly unique, and is an invaluable supplement to both homeschooling and conventional schooling.

There will be daily sung Mass, with singing of the highest standard, and sung Compline each evening. There will be an outing to a local place of interest, and visiting speakers, outside activities, the perennially popular sewing group and a staged reading of a play.

St Catherines Trust is a beneficiary of the Latin Mass Society. Under normal circumstances the school would cost about £250 per pupil to run, but as the Latin Mass Society sponsors the event, there are no fixed fees. Parents and guardians are invited to pay what they can afford. Please take advantage of this tremendous opportunity!

For more information please contact the St Catherine's Trust.

At the site of Tyburn tree - the place of execution of so many Catholic martyrsRevived Tyburn Walk a success


The revived Tyburn Walk, which retraces the footsteps of the Catholic Martyrs from Newgate Gaol (now the site of the Old Bailey) to the site of Tyburn tree at the renamed Marble Arch, took place yesterday, Sunday 31 August.

The Walk was, for many years, organised by the Guild of Our Lady of Ransom, but in recent years they have been unable to do so. Into the breach has stepped the Latin Mass Society to revive an important event in the calendar of London's Catholics.

Starting up something after a break of some years always requires quite a bit of organisational effort, but it was well worth it. The attendance was relatively small (not a surprise in the circumstances) but the spirit was good and we will certainly be repeating it again in 2015.

This year, we were fortunate to be led by Fr Nicholas Schofield, who, apart from being parish priest at Uxbridge in Middlesex, is also the LMS's Regional Chaplain for the South-East of England. Many thanks to Fr Schofield for his time and spiritual leadership of the Walk and for celebrating Mass for us. Mass took place at St Patrick's, Soho Square, so many thanks also to the parish priest, Fr Alexander Sherbrooke, for allowing us to use his church.

The pilgrimage concluded with Benediction at the Tyburn Convent.

Photos of the Walk can be seen here.
