Ampleforth Residential Retreat
On our trip to Ampleforth Catholic College – we, the children of Year 6, will be given the chance to take;
We will be very interested in the lives of the brothers who live and work at Ampleforth. We will have a question and answer round with Fr Terence and Brother Benedict on our first night which we will enjoy.
As part of the trip we will celebrate Holy Mass with Fr. Terence. We will also look forward to a tour of the Abbey.
Towards the end of the tour, Brother Benedict will show us where the Brothers eat and explain to us that silence is expected when eating in the refectory and as such a series of complex hand signals had developed in order to communicate which we all tried out with different degrees of success.
