The meeting was chaired by the Rev. Prof. John Morrill, Chairman of the Society, in the presence of the Society’s Patron, Bishop Alan Hopes, and the visiting bishop emeritus of Lismore, the Rt Rev. Geoffrey Jarrett.
The six current members of the committee were re-elected for another year, and Prof. Morrill and Dr Francis Young were re-elected as Chairman and Secretary.
After the AGM, Dr John Ashdown-Hill MBE, one of the discoverers of the body of King Richard III, delivered a fascinating lecture on royal patronage of the shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham in the fifteenth-century. The lecture was filmed by Catholic television network EWTN.
The venue was used by kind permission of Sir Henry and Lady Bedingfeld.
