Spiritually Enriching, Intellectually Stimulating

Welcome to the Centre for Applied Carmelite Spirituality One-Week
Scripture & Spirituality Summer School

A biblical and spiritual formation programme to suit all Christians – clergy, laity and the inquisitive

The Centre for Applied Carmelite Spirituality One-Week Scripture & Spirituality Summer Programme is a most unique intensive contemplative and formative learning experience in Europe. It offers a wonderful combination of academic and pastoral approach to biblical and spirituality studies, and an applied dimension answering to contemporary needs.

This programme offers an exciting new opportunity for biblical and spiritual formation. Spiritual Accompaniment, Guided Prayer, silent reflection and the celebration of Contemplative Eucharist are special features of this unique formative programme, nurturing the whole person – body, mind, soul and spirit.
