Holy Week at Sarum

  • Course Dates: Monday, 25 Mar 2013, 10:00 AM - Sunday, 31 Mar 2013, 10:00 AM

Reflection days in a retreat like atmosphere in Salisbury’s Cathedral Close. These days may form the basis of a week-long retreat or can be taken as individual days of personal reflection.

The College will be preserved as a quiet and reflective space, with Chapel, Library and meeting rooms open for private reflection and prayer.
