From August 5th – 7th 2011 comes this vital presentation of the Catholic faith in the modern world for people aged 18 to 35 and speakers will include: Rt Rev. Mark Davies, Bishop of Shrewsbury; Steve Ray, world-famous Catholic evangelist and former Baptist; Fr Jerome Bertram, Oratorian and writer; Rev. Ed Tomlinson, priest of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, and many others.
We live in a society where attacks on the Church and public displays of faith are becoming ever more common and acceptable, therefore it is important to take these opportunities to learn about the faith and thereby be able to defend it.
The conference is just over a week before the start of World Youth Day in Madrid – scheduled for August 16th – and what that city’s Cardinal, Antonio Rouco Varela, said on Sunday about WYD, could also apply to this important event for young people, taking place at the Oratory School in Reading.
Cardinal Varela wrote that he hoped for an “authentic and joyful encounter with Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, who calls young people in his Church so that their lives, often depressed and broken, will be rooted and built up in him, the only one who can offer them and give them truth, hope and love.”
That same truth, hope and love are on offer at the Evangelium Conference, so don’t miss out. It is also a great opportunity to meet other like-minded young adults and make new friends.
