After the Synod: The Future for Marriage and Family in the Church

After one of the most contentious and talked-about synods in modern church history, what is the future for the Church’s pastoral strategy for marriage and family? Austen Ivereigh, who was present in Rome throughout the synod, reporting and analyzing for various outlets, will give us a behind-the-scenes analysis of the background to the synod, the issues at stake and the areas of agreement and disagreement — as well as suggestions for how the Church will now move forward in this area.

Dr Ivereigh, coordinator of Catholic Voices, is a well-known voice in the news media on Catholic affairs. Formerly deputy editor of The Tablet and public affairs director for Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, he is the author of The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope (out now in paperback with a new edition) as well as How to Defend the Faith Without Raising Your Voice: Civil Responses to Catholic Hot Button Issues (Our Sunday Visitor, 2015).

This event is open to all interested parties, but places are limited and must be reserved in advance. To attend, please send an email to academy@catholicvoices.org.uk indicating how many places you wish to reserve.
