The Youth Service for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lancaster, has provided high class residential retreat experiences for young people for over forty years at Castlerigg Manor, Keswick, based in the heart of the Lake District, served by a team of young people and professional staff.

Besides work with school groups, the centre offers a range of open retreats for young people, families and parishes throughout the year, and members of the team also go out to schools and parishes to serve and support the local Church at specific events and on missions.
