Towards Advent Conference

This Saturday, 8 November, sees the 'Towards Advent' Festival at Westminster Cathedral Hall from 10am. There are stalls from a great variety of Catholic organisations and opportunities to buy good Catholic books, DVDs and various other gifts.

There are various events during the day. At 11am, Fr Aidan Nichols OP will speak about the Conversion of England, Fr Nicholas Schofield of Roman Miscellany will talks about the Westminster Cardinals at 12.30pm. In the afternoon (3pm), Jeremy de Satge will lead a workshop on Gregorian Chant. Joanna Bogle who is the founder and principal organiser of the festival will be giving tours of Westminster Cathedral.

The Festival is a great opportunity for networking. I am only sorry that I have to miss it again this year because of pastoral commitments in the parish.
