This year’s Pope Paul VI Memorial Lecture will take place on Friday 9 November at The Emmanuel Centre, 9-23 Marsham Street, London, SW1P 3DW. Doors will open at 6.45pm for a 7.15pm start.
As we approach the end of CAFOD’s 50th anniversary year, the talk will look ahead to the future, asking the question: What challenges do we all face today in bringing about the ‘truly universal human society’ that Pope Paul VI spoke about?
The lecture will feature panellists with expertise in a range of fields, including politics, the media and the church. These are:
- Rt Hon John Battle, Former Minister and Labour MP
- Fr Joe Komakoma, Deputy General Secretary of SECAM (Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar)
- Rosamund Urwin, Columnist
- Chair: Catherine Pepinster, Editor of The Tablet
This promises to be a thought provoking and enlightening event, and a fantastic way to gain a greater insight into the future of CAFOD’s work. The event will also include a performance by St Ignatius African Choir, of Stamford Hill, and guests will be invited to enjoy a complimentary glass of wine after the talk.
Tickets are £6 each or £3 per person for groups of 6 or more and must be bought in advance. To book tickets, please call 0207 095 5684. To find out more about the event, visit the CAFOD website by clicking here.
