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 Wrexham pilgrimage, in association with St Catherine's Trust, will be on Saturday 1st August. High Mass at 11am followed by Benediction and Veneration of the relic of St Richard Gwyn (patron of the Society) will be at 2.00pm. The Mass will be a votive of St Richard Gwyn. The celebrant is Fr. Mark Kirby O.S.B. of Silverstream Priory in Éire.
