The Course

What's New in 2018:
The LMS Residential Latin Course, which first took place in 2009, has had to relocate due to the closure of the Franciscan Retreat Centre at Pantasaph. A new venue has been secured at the Carmelite Retreat Centre near Oxford. It will no longer share facilities or liturgies with the St Catherine’s Trust Summer School; the course will now be five days, not six; teaching and accomodation will take place on a single site; and it will be significantly cheaper for all participants.

The course is intensive, over five days. The Latinists will be able to attend Mass in the Extraordinary Form, either Low or Sung, each day. (Priests will be able to celebrate Mass in the form of their choice.)

The Latin Mass Society’s Latin coursebook, Simplicissimus, is used as an aid in the course, and all participants are given a copy. We will be using a thoroughly revised and corrected edition.

Booking Information

Discounts are available for paid-up LMS Members, full-time students, seminarians and priests. If you are not already a 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, if you would like to arrange your own or live locally.

Single and shared rooms in the Gueat House (no ensuite bathrooms): single rooms are available, subject to a single room supplement.
