We continued our Lenten series of talks last night with Bishop Willie Walsh as our guest speaker. Willie was Bishop of Killaloe from 1995 until his retirement last year. We had a large turnout again and we enjoyed a wonderful evening together. Willie’s talk was was a very personal and hope-filled response to the question ‘Why remain a Catholic today?’. His talk can be downloaded from here.
As with Nuala O’ Loan on the first night, we were struck by the very personal nature of the talk and by Willie’s open, honest responses to the many questions and comments that followed his talk. It was a pleasure to witness such lively engagement on such an important question. We are deeply appreciative of our speakers and of the effort that so many have made to be present each night.
Our next talk is on Tuesday week, 5th April when Mr. Ned Prendergast will be our guest speaker. As always, you are invited to leave a comment.
