SPECIAL PROMOTION DISCOUNTS

During The Five Weeks of Summer
we have a special promotion
for newcomers. If you have
never been to Sorrento Centre before and you are registering for a course,
you automatically qualify for
a discount equivalent to the R&R fee
for that week: a value of $175 per adult.

If you are registering for R&R,
you qualify for a discount of $100.

(These discounts cannot
be combined with the
“5 for the price of 4”
parish savings program.)


SPECIAL SAVINGS FOR PARISHES

5 for the price of 4

We are always eager to encourage
new families to share in the
“Sorrento Experience”.

Our popular “5 for the price of 4” program allows parishes to partner
with us. For every four families
or individuals from a parish
attending one of our programs,
a fifth family who is
new to Sorrento Centre
is eligible to receive a credit
of up to $600.

This credit is used towards program fees and cannot be combined with the newcomers’ discount (see above).

Call us or speak to your parish contact for more details. Parish registration is required by May 31, 2018
