Finding Words for Worship

Life & Learning @ Ludlow

Thursday 28 February
10:00am — 12:00noon

Ludlow Mascall Centre

Speaker: The Revd Canon Chris Walsh

This lecture considers the principles, priorities, problems and perils discovered in translating, composing and designing worthy 21st century service books for the 400 million Roman Catholics in the English-speaking world. The issues and challenges — literary, linguistic, aesthetic, theological, pastoral, ecumenical and political — have an interest and relevance far beyond Roman Catholicism.

The Revd Canon Chris Walsh lectured in liturgy at the University of Durham for 18 years, and subsequently at Wesley College, Bristol, and the University of Wales, Lampeter. He was director of the ecumenical Institute for Liturgy and Mission at Sarum College, Salisbury, and for 15 years served on the advisory and editorial committees of the International Commission on English in the Liturgy in Washington DC. He has also been a parish priest in Wirral and Greater Manchester and currently serves the Catholic Parish of St Peter, Ludlow.

Tickets: £8.00 (including morning coffee)
