I am delighted to announce a special series of Pembury lectures, based around the Lord’s prayer, to run from Autumn of this year. They are being held in celebration of ten years since the document Anglicanorum Coetibus was released; announcing to the world the establishment of the Ordinariate. And, as if this wasn’t enough, this autumn is the anticipated date when our beloved patron, John Henry Newman, will be canonised as a Saint of the Catholic church.
We have some amazing speakers lined up and I do hope lots of people will get these dates into the diary early to ensure the talks are all well attended. Here is the full line up of speakers:
