On its website, the Shrewsbury Diocese invites Catholics to attend the event in Liverpool:
Fr Robert Barron is a well known American Diocesan Priest – he hosts a weekly programme on EWTN and on Salt and Light TV. He has produced a series of DVD’s called Catholicism. It is being launched in the UK (Durham, Birmingham and Westminster) at the end of April.
Fr Barron is a wonderful speaker and the DVDs present the main teaching of the Catholic faith in a way that is presentable and challenging.
Fr Barron will be coming to the Liverpool Archdiocesan Centre for Evangelisation on Monday 30th April at 7.30pm. He will introduce and present the DVDs. This event is open to anyone – but it will be of special interest to RCIA groups, parents, catechists, teachers and anyone interested in evangelisation and passing on the faith.
There is no charge – just turn up – all welcome.
