Father John Zuhlsdorf, best known as the blogger 'Father Z', will be one of the speakers at the Latin Mass Society's Conference on Saturday 9th June in central London. This is the first time that the LMS has organised such an event and we are very excited to have such a strong line-up. In addition to Fr Zuhlsdorf, Fr Tim Finigan (parish priest, blogger and newspaper columnist), Dr John Rao (of 'The Roman Forum'), John Hunwicke (blogger and well-known member of the Ordinariate) and Stuart McCullough (of the Good Counsel Network) will address the audience on the conference theme 'The Traditional Mass and The Catholic Life'. We hope that our guests' talks will demonstrate that there's more to Traditional Catholics than simply attending the Traditional Mass. Following the end of the talks, there will be a panel discussion to round off the day. The conference is aimed principally at ordinary LMS members, although non-members are very welcome to join us.
The Conference venue is: Regent Hall, 275 Oxford Street, London W1C 2DJ (opposite BHS, less than 5 minutes' walk from Oxford Circus.)
Admission is by ticket only. Full price tickets are £20 each but there is a discounted price for paid-up LMS members of £15 each. In addition, we are supplying an optional buffet lunch for which there is a £9 supplement. So far, most people have booked in for the lunch (drinks are included). We are hoping that lunchtime will provide conference attendees with the chance to meet and chat with their fellow LMS members from up and down the country and to some of the speakers.
Tickets are available from the LMS office 0n 020 7404 7284 or online at:
