An opportunity to learn from St John Henry Newman

Two university professors will be in dialogue during the first of a series of Newman Conversations, looking at the thought and influence of the saint. Fr Andrew Eburne reports.

The Newman Lectures have become a regular feature of diocesan life since they were founded in 2013. Now the Diocese has entered into collaboration with the Catholic university of St Mary’s Twickenham, to continue and expand on this tradition. Starting this year, the Newman lecture series will be supplemented by a series of Newman Conversations, discussing different aspects of Newman’s life, thought and influence.

The first Newman Conversation takes place on Friday June 4 at 2.30pm and will be live-streamed via Zoom. The conversation is between Professor John Charmley, Provost of St Mary’s University, and Revd Professor John Morrill, Emeritus Professor of the University of Cambridge, and a Permanent Deacon of our diocese. The topic of this first ‘Newman Conversation’ is the relationship between St John Henry Newman and Cardinal Wiseman, and what it has to tell us about the First Vatican Council.
