Vatican II, 50 Years On: The New Evangelization, was completely sold-out, and coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council to examine how the Council’s findings can be implemented in the years ahead.
Lectures were delivered by notable Church leaders: Francis Cardinal George, the Archbishop of Chicago, Fernando Cardinal Filoni, Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, and Archbishop Salvatore Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization. Scholars delivering papers included Professors Tracey Rowland (Melbourne), Mathijs Lamberigts (Leuven) Susan Wood (Marquette), Paul Murray (Durham), Gavin D’Costa (Bristol) and Annemarie Mayer (Freibourg) and the Superior General of the Missionaries of Africa, Dr Richard Baawobr.
Professor Freda Bridge, Leeds Trinity’s Principal and Chief Executive, commented:
"It was an excellent conference and many positive comments have been received from delegates. The conference was a way of Leeds Trinity being proud of its Catholic identify and confident enough to bring prestigious people from the Catholic faith here to discuss many issues around the anniversary of Vatican ll and the New Evangelization."
