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

(Click here for information about the LMS Residential Latin Course which runs concurrently)

Pantasaph Retreat Centre


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.

Maundy Thursday at St Mary MoorfieldsMusic for the Sacred Triduum in Westminster

9 APRIL 2014

Holy Week is almost upon us and this year we have the full Sacred Triduum in the Extraordinary Form in eight locations around the country.

In Westminster archdiocese, we return to our regular venue in the Square Mile at St Mary Moorfields, Eldon Street, London EC2M 7LS, which is a three-minute walk from two Tube stations - Liverpool Street on the Central line and Moorgate on the Northern line.

As before, we are delighted that the music will be performed by Cantus Magnus, directed by Matthew Schellhorn. Last night Matthew gave a concert in St George's Cathedral, Southwark, to launch his newly released CD of the large-scale piano work Stations by contemporary Irish composer Ian Wilson. Matthew is about to embark on a national tour with this piece, which was inspired by the Stations of the Cross, so we are very grateful that he has taken time out to lead the music at St Mary Moorfields. You can buy the CD here.

The music list for Holy Wednesday and the Sacred Triduum is as follows:
