The Stonyhurst Holy Week Retreat is organised by the College on an annual basis and attracts current and former pupils, parents and friends of the Stonyhurst community.

The Retreat begins on Maundy Thursday and provides full board accommodation through to Easter Sunday, making it possible for entire families, including babies and small children, to participate throughout the weekend. It is an excellent opportunity for the whole family to meet and share their faith with relatives and friends.

The Retreat programme caters for all ages, with a number of workshops aimed specifically for the younger children. Provision is made for the youngest children so that parents have the opportunity to attend their chosen discussion groups and talks throughout the three days.

For many people the retreat provides both a holiday and a valuable Holy Week experience. There is the sense of doing something very spiritual, whilst also enjoying a relaxing few days.


2020 dates coming soon. 

Bookings are currently closed.
