Dora Turbin Lecture

Saturday 26th November 2016 10.30am

Speaker: the Right Reverend John Arnold, Bishop of Salford

Pope Francis: Changing a mindset?

Bishop John Arnold of Salford has very kindly agreed to give this year's Memorial Lecture.

Bishop John was born in Sheffield; he was educated at Ratcliffe College and studied law at Oxford and London before entering the Institute of Charity (Rosminians) and then transferring to the Diocese of Westminster, being ordained in 1983. He became an Auxiliary Bishop of Westminster in 2006, he was appointed to Salford in 2014.

As a priest and Bishop he has shown a strong commitment to social justice and is a very active Chairman of Cafod. He cited as his heroes in an interview some time ago Aung San Suu Kyi and Rowan Williams.

Bishop John will reflect on his time as a Bishop including his experiences with Cafod and also the impact of Pope Francis's leadership on the local church.

There will be ample time for questions and discussion.

The BGM and Dora Turbin lecture take place on Saturday 26th November. The Dora Turbin lecture will be at 10.30 with coffee from 10am.
