This is an unique opportunity to visit the inside of the largest Charterhouse (West Sussex) in the world – less than 2h from Berkshire. This one day excursion is only for men, young men and boys (The FSSP will have CRB checked adults). Unfortunately, ladies are not admitted in the monastery.
Could you please let Fr de Malleray (FSSP) know if you would like to come along because they may plan the transportation or if you have any questions.
