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 26 July to 2 August 2015.
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.

The Latin Mass Society is delighted to announce the latest in its series of Priests' and Servers' training conferences. This year it will be held at Prior Park College, Ralph Allen Drive, Bath BA2 5AH.
The LMS has been organising training conferences for priests to learn how to celebrate the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite since 2007 - the year Pope Benedict XVI issued the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, which confirmed what many had always argued, namely, that the Traditional Latin Mass was not only legal and licit, but could be celebrated by any Catholic priest without any sort of permission whatsoever.
Ever since then, a steady stream of priests has attended the LMS training conference each year and last year's event was arguably the most successful so far - it was completely booked out.
Over the years we have held the training conferences at seminaries, academic institutions, and other Church-owned venues. This year we are delighted to be going to the Catholic independent school Prior Park College at Bath. With landscaped gardens and even a Palladian style bridge, this should prove a glorious setting for a glorious rite of Mass!
The Latin Mass Society will be organising a residential training conference for priests wishing to learn to celebrate Mass in the usus antiquior. Tuition, which will be given by experienced priests, will be tailored to suit the needs of each priest. The conference will also be open for servers who wish to learn or improve their skills with the older form of the Mass.
