Wednesday Workshops

Continuing our teaching objectives

As we were unable to go ahead with our Spring Gathering days this year, Society of Saint Gregory will be holding a series of online workshops which will take place on Wednesday evening (from 7.30 to 9.00pm) so that we can continue with our teaching objectives.  The sessions will take place via Zoom.
