The programme is expected to be the similar to last year's with Mass before departure; Ferry to France; overnight stay Friday at the Hotel Ibis, Aulnay sous Bois; 3 days of Pilgrimage; a hot meal and overnight stay in Chartres (likely in the Ibis - Chartres Centre as the Chatelet does not have enough rooms this year); Mass in Chartres Cathedral Crypt; and return via Eurotunnel to London.

The Latinists will be able to attend the daily Missa Cantata and sung Compline which are part of the Summer School’s timetable. In addition to language teaching the course participants will have talks on Gregorian Chant, the Latin liturgy, and Latin in Philosophy and poetry. The Latin Mass Society’s Latin coursebook, ‘Simplicissimus’, is used as an aid in the course, and all participants are given a copy. More details here.

The second of these biennial events will be centred on a common theme, and we hope to have a number of well-known figures (including from overseas) as guest speakers. Further details will follow in due course.
