This wonderful sold out event took place on Tuesday 24th November 2020.

We were treated to a powerful and inspiring delivery by Dr Gemma Simmonds CJ from the UK.

The lecture touched on the many global, social, economic and spiritual crises of our time – the vacuum in political leadership, the human pain of isolation and disconnection being felt by many during Covid 19, the lack of will to deal with migration challenges across the world and the apparent loss of the value of the common good.

The main message of Gemma’s echos the call of Pope Francis in ‘Fratelli Tutti’ – to grow and develop the art of encounter – to build communities of encounter.
