For those who are interested, Ashwell House also offers Christian formation. The religious formation is entrusted to Opus Dei, a Personal Prelature of the Catholic Church. Opus Dei helps ordinary men and women find holiness in their everyday work, study and family life. In Ashwell House, this means helping students discover a deeper meaning in their studies and the richness of the Catholic faith.

The Chaplain of the Residence celebrates Holy Mass regularly and is available for spiritual guidance and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. There are also regularly scheduled meditations and days of recollection organised for those who wish.

Ashwell hosts retreats for students to have the opportunity to spend a weekend with God in prayer and reflection. The retreats are silent retreats guided by staff. Retreats are held throughout the year at Wickenden Manor in Sussex. Please check our calendar to find out more.
