Bishop Mark Davies of Shrewsbury, as well as celebrating Mass for the second time in three years at the conference, spoke movingly on the great 19th century French saint, Jean Vianney, as an inspiration for the Faith in our age, and on the need for perseverance. Other speakers included Fr Jerome Bertram of the Oxford Oratory, James and Joanna Bogle, Dr Alan Fimister and Dr William Newton of the International Theological Institute, Fr John Hermer from Allen Hall, Fr Nicholas Schofield from Westminster Archdiocese, Dr Joseph Shaw from the Faculty of Philosophy at Oxford, Fr Ed Tomlinson from the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham and Sr Mary Trinity of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (SOLT).
The Evangelium project is sponsored by the Catholic Truth Society and started in 2006 with the publication of a catechetical course by Fr Marcus Holden and Fr Andrew Pinsent from A&B Diocese. The next Evangelium conference is planned for 1 – 3 August 2014.
