Faith Winter Session 2015

Faith Winter Session 2015

29.12.2015 - 31.12.2015

Set in the beautiful grounds of Stonyhurst College, Lancashire, the Faith Winter Session includes three days of talks on the faith which take place alongside daily Mass, opportunities for discussion and social time. This event gives young Catholics a chance to ask questions about their faith and meet one another in an informal and prayerful atmosphere. The timetable is balanced to include opportunities for prayer, sporting and social activities; and a deepening of one’s relationship with God is enabled by opportunities for Confession, daily Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and the celebration of the Divine Office. There is a licensed bar on the premises (over 18s only) and the programme of evening entertainments includes a traditional Ceilidh (Scottish dancing).

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