Successful Evangelium Conference

Some news in about the Evangelium Summer Conference last weekend at the Shrine of the Divine Mercy, Fawley Court. Over 100 young people took part in the conference which addressed the question of how to reach out and explain the Catholic Faith to people in the modern world. Speakers included Fr Jerome Bertram, Fr Thomas Crean OP, Fr John Saward and Joanna Bogle.

Many good organisations were represented: CASE, Aid to the Church in Need, Family Life International, St Anthony Communications, St Patrick’s School of Evangelisation, the Good Counsel Network, the Iona Institute, and the Linacre Centre.

Past and present seminarians from the Venerable English College in Rome organised the liturgy and music, contributing to the prayerful and reverence celebration of Holy Mass.

The Conference was organized by Fr Marcus Holden and Fr Andrew Pinsent of the Evangelium Project, in association with the Catholic Truth Society. Fr Pinsent said of the Conference:
“We aimed to provide orthodox Catholic teaching with challenging intellectual depth and liturgical beauty, very much the vision of Pope Benedict XVI. The enthusiastic response of the young people present at the Conference confirms the fruitfulness of this approach and encourages us in planning future projects of this kind.”
