Faith Matters - Spring 2011

Being Catholic Today

Westminster Hall was the scene of an historic event on 17 September 2010.  On the eve of Pope Benedict’s visit to our Cathedral, centre of Catholic life in our country, the Holy Father addressed various representatives of public life in a place of great historical significance, reminding us of the often hostile relationship between Church and State.  It was here that he called us to an authentic dialogue between faith and reason, between religion and society.  “I would invite all of you, therefore, within your respective spheres of influence, to seek ways of promoting and encouraging dialogue between faith and reason at every level of national life”.

Our forthcoming series of Faith Matters, the biannual Catholic lecture series in Westminster Cathedral Hall, invites us to engage with the real issues of how we live out our Catholic Faith in the midst of modern society.  In order to do this we present five lecturers speaking to the theme of Being Catholic Today.  Each speaker represents a different strand of British society today and reflects on the issues specific to living out the Catholic Faith in the world they inhabit.

All are welcome to attend these lectures which start at 7pm. For further information and to book your place, please visit www.rcdow.org.uk/faithmatters or e-mail to faithmatters@rcdow.org.uk or call on 020 7931 6078.
