Doors open: 10.30am
Conference Theme: 'The Traditional Mass and Evangelisation'
This is the second one-day conference that the LMS has organised. Our first in 2012 was a great success. This year's event promises to be even better.
We have Bishop Athanasius Schneider from Kazakhstan. Bishop Schneider is well known as the author of Dominus Est - It is the Lord! - a defence of the traditional manner of receiving Communion.
Joseph Pearce is the critically acclaimed author of several biographies of Catholic literary figures, including Chesterton, Belloc, Tolkien and Oscar Wilde, as well as Literary Converts - the conversion stories of a string of early 20th century English writers who were received into the Catholic Church.He has recently written his autobiography Race with the Devil - the story of his conversion from a Catholic-hating member of the National Front to a devout Catholic.
Fr Michael Mary is the superior of the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer (the Transalpine Redemptorists), based in Golgotha Monastery on the Orkney island of Papa Stronsay. A completely Traditional Order, their canonical status was regularised after having reconciled with the Holy See following Summorum Pontificum, having previously worked for many years with the SSPX.
Dr Christopher Hodkinson is the director of the Schola Gregoriana of Cambridge, one of the leading influences in the revival of Gregorian Chant in England in recent years.
Professor Thomas Pink lectures at King's College, London, and is known for his work on the fraught topic of religious liberty.
This year's conference theme: 'The Traditional Mass and Evangelisation'
We hear much in the Catholic media about evangelisation, but what part has the Traditional liturgy to play in converting and re-converting people to the Faith? Has it been neglected by the Church as a powerful weapon in winning souls for Christ?
Come along and listen to the excellent range of speakers we have lined up for you and hear what they have to say about evangelisation in the context of the Extraordinary Form. Bring your family and friends. All are welcome.
