INFORMATION AND HOW TO BOOK
This will be the 5th Residential Latin Course organised by the LMS and it is here in the Diocese of Wrexham yet again! The course will be held at:
The Franciscan Retreat Centre, Monastery Road, Pantasaph, Holywell, Flintshire, North Wales CH8 8PE
Registration is from 11.30am to 12.30pm on Monday, 27 July.
The course ends at lunch time on Saturday, 1 August (lunch is at 12.30pm).
It is close by the Wirral and not far from Chester. The closest railway station is Flint from where taxis are available. For full directions, if coming by car, see the Retreat Centre's website.
The course is intensive, over six days, with accommodation close by in the St Winifrede’s Guest House in Holywell, which is run by the Bridgettine Sisters. The Latinists will be able to attend the daily Missa Cantata and sung Compline which are part of the St Catherine's Trust Summer School, which will be running simultaneously to the Latin course in another part of the Retreat Centre.
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.
Discounts are available for paid-up LMS Members, full-time students, seminarians and priests (scroll down to book online). If you are not already an LMS member, you can join now and claim the appropriate discount off the price. The saving on the Latin course fee is greater than the annual membership fee for the LMS!
We also offer an option without accommodation (i.e. you can book your own B&B accommodation nearby).
You can also download a booking form to pay by cheque.
Single and shared rooms: single rooms are available, subject to a single room supplement. However, single rooms are fairly scarce and we are encouraging people, where possible, to share a twin room to help us fit everyone in! If booking a single room, please indicate whether, if required, you would be prepared to share instead. If you end up sharing, you will be refunded any single room supplement you've paid.
