Five Lenten talks by leading speakers: Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, Baroness Hollins of Wimbledon, Lord Patten of Barnes, Sr. Gemma Simmonds and Dr. Austen Ivereigh

Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the UK in September last year left us with rich messages inviting us to live our faith in a new and fresh way. Lent gives us the opportunity to examine our own journeys in faith remembering the Pope’s words calling on us to ‘seek ways of promoting and encouraging dialogue between faith and reason at every level of national life.’

The parishes of Our Lady of Grace and St Edward, Chiswick and St Dunstan’s, Gunnersbury have invited five leading speakers from different disciplines - Religion, Politics, Psychiatry, Media, Theology and Spirituality – to share their reflections on faith.

Cardinal Cormac Murphy- O’Connor

 22nd March: “Our Faith in Mind”: Faith, Community and Mental Health:
Baroness Hollins of Wimbledon

 5th April: “Faith in the news?: the experience of Catholic Voices”:

 12th April: “Personal Faith and Public Service: Christian witness in the wider
world”: Lord Patten of Barnes

The talks will be followed by a question and answer session.
