Thursday 9th April – Sunday 12th April 2020


The Holy Week Retreat is organised by the College on an annual basis, welcoming a hose of visitors to the College from across 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 attend. It is an excellent opportunity for the whole family to meet and share their faith with relatives and friends.

The theme for this year’s Retreat is Living out Laudato Si and the talks and reflections that take place during the weekend, will explore topics relating to this.

The adult programme has been developed to include a number of notable guest speakers, as well as opportunities for group discussion, reflection and meditation. All retreatants will be given the opportunity to attend the workshops and speakers of their choice throughout the weekend, as well as receive Spiritual Direction, should they wish to do so.

The full programme of events, including Masses and meal times will be featured on the website in due course.

The Retreat caters for all ages and further to the adult programme will be a children’s programme for young people aged 5-16 years of age, offering provision so that parents have the opportunity to attend their chosen talks and discussion groups.

There will also be the opportunity to visit the Old Chapel Museum during your visit.

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.
