Event details

Come join us for our Winter Schola!  We will be having two class tracks:  one on health and safety, and another on food and cooking.  Many of the health and safety classes will be oriented toward those who serve or want to serve in the Chirurgeonate

For those who wish to obtain or renew first aid or CPR certifications, we will be offering ASHI CPR and First Aid classes.  The cost of these classes is NOT INCLUDED in the site fee.  The ASHI CPR and Basic First Aid classes will each cost $25, plus an additional $5 if you want a copy of the book.  These classes are both 6-7 hours long, so it will not be possible to take both at this event.

The cooking and food class track is being prepared by Baroness Juliana von Altenfeld, OL, OP.  If you’d like to teach a class, please contact her at

The schedule for classes for both class tracks can be viewed here:

A hearty dayboard will be provided, prepared by Maistreas Shannon Gallowglass.  Please direct all food and allergy concerns to
