HOWTH PARISH REFORM AND RENEWAL GROUP
will meet on
Monday the 5th November in
St. Columbanus Hall, Howth, at 8.00pm.
Fr. Gerry O’Hanlon SJ will speak on his latest book ‘The Quiet Revolution of Pope Francis’. Fr. Gerry is a theologian and author of many books, including ‘Theology in the public square’ and ‘A new vision for the Catholic Church’ and is currently Social Theologian with the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice.
Commenting on his latest book Dermot Lane observes ‘This is not an armchair theology but one chiselled out of engaging with diverse groups’ and ‘heeding the prophetic voice of the Bishop of Rome’.
Michael Kirwan SJ describes the book as ‘the missing piece of the jigsaw’ and a ‘wise, critical but hopeful diagnosis that offers the glimpse of a longed for sea-change for the church’.
