The Theme of the Conference will be “Nurturing the Parish Community.”  We shall explore prayer, study, caring, community in a multicultural society, monastic community and witnessing to a secular Britain and ireland.  In addition to speakers within the Archdiocese we are delighted that Sister Magdalen will be with us to give the talk on monastic community life (Stavropegic Monastery of St John the Baptist, Tolleshunt Knights, Essex).
