The Irish Catholic to host conference

The impact of Pope Francis on the reform of the Church in Ireland will be the theme of a major conference to take place in Dublin next month, hosted by The Irish Catholic.

Speakers include Papal biographer Austen Ivereigh, Baroness Nuala O’Loan, Breda O’Brien, Abbot Mark-Patrick Hederman, Trocaire’s Eamon Meehan, Mary Kenny and David Quinn.

The conference will be held in the Red Cow hotel close to Dublin’s M50 on Saturday October 4 and will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Vatican II document Lumen Gentium.

Tickets are available at a special offer of €25 per person. Admission on the day will cost €30.

There will also be an opportunity for a panel discussion addressing the future of the Church in Ireland and what impact Pope Francis is having and will continue to have on this renewal and reform.
