Our popular Home Retreats series continues as we approach Easter with a new programme of reflections from the monastic community at Ampleforth.

Covering a range of interesting and poignant topics, these short sessions are available for you to enjoy online from the comfort of your own home.

Join us on YouTube at 11am each Saturday to watch live, or on playback at a time that suits you.
