Faith Winter Session 2016

Faith Winter Session 2016

28.12.2016 - 30.12.2016

"Open Wide the doors to Christ" Exploring the teaching of St John Paul.

Set in the beautiful grounds of Stonyhurst College, Lancashire, the FAITH Winter Session attracts scores of young Catholics from all over Britain and offers a unique blend of catechetical, spiritual and social activities in a relaxed holiday atmosphere. Each year it follows a central theme which is developed over the three days by a series of lectures and discussions. 

Although the Winter Session is not a retreat, one of the keys to the spirit it creates comes from our joining in common prayer and sharing in the Sacraments. Each day there will be morning and night prayer, Midday Mass, a Reconciliation Service with Exposition, Benediction and the chance for individual Confession.

During the session there will also be some free time with various afternoon activities being laid on for those who are interested. Then, with the bar open in the evenings, there will be an excellent chance to relax, meet new people and, if you have the energy, chat into the small hours.
