Faith Summer Session 2018

30.07.2018 - 03.08.2018

"Above all things love each other" (1 Peter 4:8) - The Human Vocation to Love

Cost: £185 / Concessions: £160

From modest beginnings, the event has grown into a major annual conference for young adults, attracting students, seminarians and active young Catholics from all over the UK and beyond. Set in the beautiful grounds of Woldingham School, Surrey, the Faith Summer Session gives young Catholics a chance to ask questions about their faith and meet other young Catholics in an informal and prayerful atmosphere.


Keynote Talks


Truth, what is that? (John 18:38) – Overcoming the dictatorship of relativism (Bishop Philip Egan).

Male and Female He Created them (Gen 1:27) – The Sexes in the plan of God (Sr. Andrea Fraile).

Love one another as I have loved you (John 13:34-35) – The Sacrifice of Christ as the model of love (Fr. Mark Vickers).

As the family goes… so goes the whole world (St. John Paul II) – The Family as the solution (Bishop John Keenan).

You have made them little less than gods, you have crowned them with glory and beauty (Psalm 8:5) – Loving in a confused world (Fr. Mike Dolman).


The format of the five days provides an excellent balance of social, spiritual and catechetical activities. As usual, the focus of the week will be the series of talks, each building on one another to develop a coherent, dynamic vision of the faith. Each day there will be Mass, morning and night prayer and, on one of the evenings, exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and confessions. There will also be plenty of time for recreation and socialising: the afternoons will be free for playing sports, going on walks or simply relaxing, while the evening's activities will include a ceilidh and an entertainment night.

All accommodation and meals are provided on-site and specific dietary requirements are catered for. A tuck-shop is also available for the purchasing of sweets and snacks.
