“Thy Will be done?” Healing God’s World

A Study Weekend to be held at The Bar Convent, York on 14-15 July is one of the Jesuit-inspired ‘Living Theology’ courses held at different venues across the country. A panel of speakers will lead the weekend in York, focusing on aspects of ‘justice’: from its scriptural foundations and Church teachings, considerations of developments in history, peace and war and the environment, and the issues of refugees and asylum seekers.  Everyone is most welcome to attend!

What are some of the implications of the prayer “Thy Will be done”? and how can Christians contribute to the healing of God’s world?  The main speakers are Fr Frank Turner SJ, who was an advisor on international affairs to the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales and is now the British Jesuits’ ‘Delegate for the Intellectual Apostolate’; Lucy Beckett, the well-known author and reviewer who taught for many years at Ampleforth and Dr Theo Hawksley CJ, a religious sister of the Congregation of Jesus recently returned from Guyana and now based in London.

  In addition there will be talks from representatives of The Medaille Trust and Justice, two charities which work for justice in the UK today

  This rich programme is being held in the easily accessible but tranquil surroundings of The Bar Convent, where the informative talks, lively discussion, prayer and companionship will make it a weekend to remember!
