The popular annual CAFOD event, the Pope Paul VI Memorial Lecture, is coming back!
When? Friday 18 November 2011, at 7.15pm (doors open 6.45pm)
Where? St Mary and St Michael, Commercial Road, 2 Lukin Street, Commercial Road, London E1 0AA
Set in the East End of London, against a backdrop of government spending cuts and increasing civil disorder, this year’s lecture is an invitation to take a fresh look at the best ways to address poverty in this country and overseas.
This year marks a change in venue, bringing the event and Fr Christopher’s message into the heart of a London community that battles with poverty and its effects on a daily basis. Bishop Challoner Collegiate School choir, the local Catholic secondary, will provide musical interludes, starting from 7pm.
Shelagh Fogarty, from BBC Radio 5 Live, will chair the lecture.
Tickets are £6 each, or £4 each if you are a student or a young adult. The price of a ticket includes a complimentary glass of wine (or soft drink) and light refreshments.
If you are a young adult, it will also be a chance to spend a Friday night differently! You will be very welcome to meet some CAFOD staff members afterwards – there will also be a group heading to a very reasonable Indian restaurant opposite the church venue for a curry after the reception if anyone would like to join! On top of all that, the lively Shoreditch and Brick Lane are very close for any who want to carry on their Friday night.
To book a ticket, call 020 7095 5684 with your credit/debit card ready. Wheelchair access and T-loop system available.
